‘Besiege’ SC with petitions vs Anti-Terrorism Act - Kiko Pangilinan



The dye has been surely cast.
The opposition and other groups know that the next battlefield as regards the constitutionality of the Republic Act No. 11479, or Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA) of 2020 would be before the highest court of the land – the Supreme Court (SC).

Opposition senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan is urging the individuals and concerned groups to  “besiege” the High Court with petitions  just to make a point that a lot of Filipinos believe the ATA contravenes with the 1987 Constitution.

The Liberal Party veteran lawmaker, who currently chairs the Senate committee on constitutional amendments, said he would also personally question the said law before the SC.
“We have to exhaust all (legal) remedies. Whether we win or not is another thing altogether. But we have to fight,” Senator Kiko said in a radio interview.

Vice President Leni Robredo was quoted saying she will support every efforts to question the Anti-Terrorism Act before the High Court.
“We can still do a lot… We can go to the Supreme Court because we believe there are unconstitutional provisions,” Robredo said in a television interview on Saturday. “We can also continue to engage Congress to repeal or amend the provisions that are not acceptable to us.”
