Minamadali?! Senators Hontiveros & Pangilinan urges Govt: Focus on COVID-19 instead of anti-terrorism bill




Opposition senators Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan and Rissa Hontiveros are both in the same page in calling out the Duterte administration’s prioritization of an anti-terrorism bill instead of focusing on the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID 19 pandemic.
Both senators of the Liberal Party is urging government to focus all efforts related to COVID-19.

In separate statements, Hontiveros and Pangilinan expressed their utterly dismay with President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s certification as urgent of House Bill 6875 or the proposed amendments to the Human Security Act of 2007.

“Terrorized na ang mga kababayan natin dahil sa COVID-19, ang nakakamatay at nakakahawang sakit. Mas nate-terrorize pa dahil sa kawalan ng trabaho at hanapbuhay na dulot ng iba’t ibang klase ng lockdown na pinataw sa ating mamamayan at ekonomiya,” Senator Pangilinan said.
“I believe it is open to abuse. This is one compelling reason why I voted against it,” he added.
Both senators voted against the counterpart bill in the Senate when it was passed by the chamber on third and final reading in February.

The lady senator said government more than ever should address problems on public transportation, COVID-19 mass testing and the revival of the economy amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Whole of government ‘di ba? Heal as one di ba? Gamot ba ang panukalang batas sa COVID-19 o gagamiting panakip-butas sa mga kapalpakan? Paano pigilan ang paglaganap ng COVID-19 at paano ibangon ang nakadapa nating ekonomiya ang bigyan ng panahon at solusyon, huwag ang anti-terror bill,” she said.
