"Kahit napirmahan natin, patuloy—patuloy iyong pakikiusap, patuloy iyong pagtutulak, patuloy iyong pag-push back," she said in an interview
She highlights the sentiments of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao who feared that their people would be subjected to discrimination with the law's vague definition of terrorism.
"Ito iyong mga taong malawak iyong karanasan sa terorismo, na sana nabigyan ng mas malaking lugar sa lamesa para pakinggan," said Robredo.
