Lacson slams Diokno's claims re Anti-Terrorism bill




Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson is in direct warpath to those political personalities who keeps criticizing the Anti-Terrorism bill without even trying to understand the provisions therein.
Lacson is Senate bill’s sponsor has slammed defeated senatorial candidate Manuel Diokno who he claims continues to spread fake news about it, which in fact was part of those invited to give inputs about the proposed measure in its early stages.

“Walang basehan. Unang una sabi ko ang Bill of Rights nariyan pa rin. Walang lumampas sa Bill of Rights na enumeration ng rights na nakalista sa ating Saligang Batas. Walang lumampas doon. It’s within the bounds of the Bill of Rights,” Lacson said in an interview with Senate media.

The former Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief reiterates that there will be no curtailment of basic civil rights and will not cover legitimate protests and expression of dissent, or even stoppage of work, industrial or mass action or other similar exercises of civil and political rights.
He also revealed a few months back when they were drafting the bill, Diokno was among those invited to give their inputs on the proposed measure.
“Napansin lang namin nang inimbitahan namin ang mga progressive bloc, the likes of Chel Diokno and rights advocates, di sila nagpunta. I think at least twice namin sila pinadala ng invitation,” he said.

“They had all the time last year, all the way to Feb nang pinasa namin ito para pahayag ang kanilang pagsalungat. E di sana kung ano ang kanilang input o gusto i-incorporate sa bill sa Senate version na in-adopt ng House, sana pinasok nila rito,” he added.
And now the proposed bill is undergoing massive disinformation drive according to Lacson.
“I just hope na hindi darating ang araw sila o pamilya nila o mga mahal nila sa buhay, magiging biktima o sa receiving end ng terrorist attack. Kasi pag nangyari yan, medyo late na sila i-regret itong ginagawa nilang to convince ang mga tao to junk the anti-terror bill,” he said.
He also reiterated his challenge to critics to read the bill before they criticize. “Madaling mag-disinform kasi kababayan natin madaling takutin,” he said.
