‘Dapat ibasura ang walang kuwentang batas (Anti-Terrorism Law) na ito’ - Kiko Pangilinan

‘Dapat ibasura ang walang kuwentang batas (Anti-Terrorism Law) na ito’ - Kiko Pangilinan

A historic event just happened as President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has signed the controversial Anti-Terrorism bill.

Duterte signed the said measure even if there are a lot of protestations from the opposition and from some human right groups.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet even urged the Philippine President not to sign the proposed measure.

But for opposition senator Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, he said he is more than ready to challenge the constitutionality of the just signed Republic Act No. 11479 or the Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020 before the Supreme Court.

“Hindi tinutugunan ng anti-terror law ang problema ng sakit at gutom dulot ng pandemya ngunit sapilitang itong isinusubo sa taumbayan. Basura ang pilit na isinusubo sa taumbayan,” the senator said. “Dapat ibasura ang walang kuwentang batas na ito at handa tayong kwestyunin ang constitutionality ng batas na ito sa Korte Suprema.”

“I am not surprised. From Day 1 this Administration unleashed draconian and authoritarian measures as a showcase of its brand of leadership. These draconian measures however have been exposed as nothing more than a show of senseless, mindless violence as means to sow fear amongst the people. From the murderous drug war, to the longest martial law in Mindanao, to the longest lockdown in the world, and now to the anti-terror law,” Senator Kiko said.
“The drug war has not nailed big-time drug lords and drugs still flow after 4 years. Martial law in Mindanao has failed to address the reconstruction of Marawi. The longest lockdown has not addressed the continuing spread of COVID. Patunay lahat ito na hindi kamay na bakal ang solusyon sa ating mga problema,” he added.
