Netizens Worry Over Inaccessible Malacañang Website, Admin Says Website Down Due to ‘Updates’

Published

on

Netizens expressed great concern on Monday, as the official website of Malacañang, which housed the online repositories of the Philippine Museum and Library, was reported to be inaccessible.

The inaccessible Malacañang website was first reported by the former Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office Undersecretary Manuel Quezon III, who tweeted what seems to be a takedown of the Presidential Museum and Library website.

Netizens were quick to spread word about Quezon’s tweet, which read “malacanang.gov.ph, where the repositories of the Presidential Museum and Library were, is gone.”

The takedown of the website prompted many to share links to resources regarding the martial law era and the Marcos regime.

The concern comes as the Presidential Museum and Library also houses records under the regime of late dictator Ferdinand Marcos Sr., where netizens noted that a supposed whitewashing and historical revisionism by presumptive president Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. might already be starting.

However, the next president will only take office through an inauguration that is always commenced on June 30.

‘Updates’

The overwhelming reaction on social media compelled the administration of the Presidential Museum and Library to respond through a statement, which read “Please be informed that, contrary to reports that it has been deleted, the website malacanang.gov.ph is merely suspended following measures to update the content therein and improve its security features.”

Furthermore, the administration added that no content of the website was compromised.

The website “will be made available to the public at the soonest possible time,” according to the statement. (GFB)
