Ironic! Lacson corrects IBP misconception in anti-terror bill

It is ironic that a senator of the republic is the one explaining the Anti-Terrorism bill to the country’s largest group of lawyers.

Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson corrected a misconception by the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) on a provision in the proposed Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020.

Lacson along with Senate President Vicente Sotto III are the principal sponsor of the measure, addressed a reported claim by the IBP about the role of the Anti-Terrorism Council in the proposed measure.

In his Twitter account the senator said that the ATC designates a terrorist or terrorist group, it is only to request the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) to freeze the account, or to request the Court of Appeals (CA) to issue an order to wiretap but – not an excuse to arrest the suspect.
“IBP: If the ATC designates you as a terrorist or terrorist organization, based on probable cause, that is a signal and excuse now for law enforcers to arrest,
NO SIR! It is ONLY to request the AMLC to freeze the accounts and the CA to issue an order to wiretap, NOT arrest,” he said.

Lacson have been slamming the massive misinformation being done to discredit and to make an impression that it is being rushed in order for President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to get back to the different personalities who have been critical to his administration’s policies.
