Anti-Terrorism Law (RA 11479) takes effect today

Anti-Terrorism Law (RA 11479) takes effect today




The Philippines now has the law that can put terrorists in their rightful place, gone is the “soft hands” of the government in pursuing peace by eliminating them as a threat to the people.
Despite all the criticisms and misinformation surrounding the Republic Act 11479 or the Anti-Terror Actit takes effect today –15 days after its publication in the Official Gazette and national newspapers on July 3, and even in the absence of implementing rules and regulations.


“Considering that the law was published on July 3, it will take effect on July 18, which is the 15th day,” Guevarra told mediamen.


The DoJ Secretary said the drafting of the implementing rules and regulations (IRR) is “just about to start” and will be ready within 90 days.

“The law will take effect even without the IRR because the promulgation of the IRR is not a condition for the effectivity of the law. Some provisions are self-executing, like the organization of the ATC (Anti-Terrorism Council),” he said.
The IRR will be prepared in consultation with law enforcement agencies and the military, he said.

“But there are provisions where operational details need to be spelled out or standards clearly defined in the IRR for a proper implementation of the law,” he stressed.
