Lacson shoots down claims Anti-Terror Bill is for current administration

One of the principal authors of the Anti-Terrorism Bill in the Senate has directly and conclusively stated that the said measure was not meant to give more powers to President Rodrigo Roa Duterte but the primordial reason for its enactment is for the protection of Filipinos from the threat of terrorism.

Senator Panfilo Lacson stressed this fact to silence one and for all the continuous accusations from the opponents of the proposed measure, for they say this will only allow the government to go after its critics and dissenters.

“The Anti-terrorism bill has nothing to do with this president. It is all about the security and protection of our country and people. I had expressed very serious reservations in passing the Human Security Act of 2007 because of ex-Pres Arroyo. I voted YES nevertheless,” Lacson said in a post on his Twitter.

In an earlier interview with the Senator he said there is a massive disinformation campaign to stop the passage of the measure into a law, but at the same time he is confident the truth will eventually prevail.
