In the said webnar Carpio zeroid in section 29 of the said bill, which he says gives too much power to the Anti-Terrorism Council, including judicial powers.
Lacson points out the retired SC justice is wrong in his interpretation since Section 45 of the proposed measure made it clear the Anti-Terrorism Council will not have judicial or quasi-judicial powers.
“I had addressed many of the concerns he raised, in my letter reply to the Integrated Bar of the Philippines. I hope those who share his concerns take time to read it,” Lacson said.
