Former SolGen slams Cebu police for arrest of anti-terrorism bill protesters: Kayo ang magulo!

Former Solicitor General Florin Hilbay an erstwhile Otso Diretso senatorial candidate in the last midterm elections is making headlines again.
He is slamming the government authorities for terrorizing a peaceful protest against the Anti-Terrorism bill at the University of the Philippines (UP) in Cebu.

“Yung Anti-Terror Bill na rally sa UP Diliman mapayapa at maayos. Yung Anti-Terror Bill rally sa UP Cebu may mga naaresto,” read his Twitter post.
The former SolGen during the term of former President Benigno Simeon “Noynoy” Aquino III points out the difference between the two protest activities was that “nang-gulo yung kapulisan.”

“They’re the ones who inflicted terror on citizens exercising their rights peacefully,” he stressed.
The former SolGen himself has also expressed opposition to the Anti-Terrorism bill authored by the allies of President Rodrigo Duterte.

“Filipinos are being told they need protection against terrorism by those who have been terrorizing them,” he had pointed out.
A few days ago, three students, four members of progressive groups and a bystander were arrested by members of the Philippine Natioal Police (PNP) in Cebu while they were holding a rally inside the state university – University of the Philippines against the Anti-Terrorism bill.

According to PNP Cebu City Police Office the protesters were arrested because they violated the government imposed ban on mass gatherings aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19.
