I will not hesitate to question the legality of the Anti-Terrorism Bill in SC - Hontiveros




A lot of the opposition senators are in double time mode in their bid to stop the Anti-Terrorism bill being signed into law, one of which is senator Risa Hontiveros.

She said that there will be no hesitation on her part to join a group or personally in questioning the constitutionality of the Anti-Terrorism Act in the Supreme Court once the said law is signed by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.


“Posibleng sumali ako sa ganoong grupo… malawak at lumawalak na hanay ng mga mamamayan na hihingi ng redress of grievance, sa batas na ito, sa Supreme Court man o sa iba pang mga larangan dito sa ating lipunan,” said senator Hontiveros.

The opposition senator reveals that she has been talking and consulting to legal experts about the next possible move after President Rodrigo Roa Duterte signs the said law.
“Kasalukuyan ako ay nagko-consult, nag-aaral sa mga legal experts kung ano yung mga susunod na hakbang,” opposition senator said.
“Sa pagkaalam ko may mga grupo, indibidwal na nag-aaral na kapag nasign into law na ito ireraise nila sa attention ng Korte Suprema,” Hontiveros added.

Hontiveros and Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan were the only senators who voted against the proposed measure that will amend the Human Security Act of 2017.
The lady senator also reveals that she has been coordinating with Albay representative Edcel Lagman, one of the primary oppositors of the proposed measure in the House of Representatives, for the possible remedies the opposition might take once the said enrolled bill is signed into law.


“Lahat ay naghahanda, lahat ay dapat naghahanda na sa lahat ng creative ng active, non-violent ways depensahan pa rin ang ating democratic freedom, rights and civil liberties,” she added.
