Former Miss International title holder Aurora Pijuancame out publicly and slammed the Leyte lawmaker for her stance of defending the controversial law which was recently signed by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.
The former Miss International is the ex-wife of Tommy Manotoc, said Congresswoman Torres-Gomez had a poor grasp of how the new measure could trample upon basic human rights and could be prone to abuse.
“I wonder if Lucy Torres understands this fear,” Pijuan twitted.

“She can at least just shut up and not confirm what we already know,” Pijuan added referring to a post about Lucy’s political survival.

Lucy’s support for the controversial law
Last month Lucy Torres-Gomez posted in her Facebook account her reasons for supporting the law.
“So many of those who oppose the bill also say it quells freedom of expression, a basic human right. For those who are worried about opposing the President, or expressing dissent against the government or any of its officials for that matter, kindly review Articles 138, 139 and 142 of the Revised Penal Code. You will find that these are existing laws on inciting rebellion and sedition which are more incriminating than this Anti-terrorism bill.

Will this bill hinder you from attending rallies? It will not. And you also cannot be arrested for attending JUST ANY RALLY. First, you have to be the one making the speech. Second, your speech has to incite or encourage other people to commit acts that a) threaten to kill, harm people, b) extensively damage property, c) make or possess WMDs, d) damage or interfere with critical infrastructure, and e) release substances to cause fire or explosion to create public fear, emergency and destabilize the country.

It is misleading to take either just the intentions or just the actions and insist those to be the definition of a suspected terrorist. And if we all just understand that the intentions and actions that constitute terrorism are really GRAVE and DEVASTATING to our country, we will not let fear get in the way of apprehending and bringing REAL TERRORISTS to justice. This bill is intended to prevent another Marawi siege, another bombing of a public venue. And lest we make this all about ourselves and our fears of how we may be held accountable for what we say or do as we exercise our civil rights, think of our soldiers who are dismembered by terrorists, remember, too, the SAF 44, that we were all so outraged about.”
