Smart denies it helped wiretap Arroyo

The telecom giant, the cellular service provider of the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co., doesn’t have the “highly restricted equipment” needed to conduct even a court-sanctioned wiretapping operation, according to Smart corporate communications chief Ramon Isberto.

Isberto issued a denial shortly after former Technical Sergeant Vidal Doble, who used to be with the Intelligence Service of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (ISAFP), told reporters that ISAFP had “somebody from Smart” to help spy on both administration and administration personalities in the 2004 elections.
