πŸŽ₯ On the 1-year extension of martial law in Mindanao | Dec. 13, 2017

Sen. Lacson says that with the one-year extension of martial law in Mindanao, security forces there will be more wary of committing possible abuses.


Quotes from the interview…

Expectations from the one-year extension of martial law in Mindanao:
“Ang ine-expect lang natin dito, sinabi ko na rin ang psychological boost na bibigay nito sa military. Pero extra powers, wala.”
“(M)as magiging conscious pa nga ang AFP at PNP dahil alam nilang binabantayan sila. Ang mga mata nakatutok sa kanila.”
“(I)n a way, it’s a blessing in disguise kasi nga ang consciousness, ang awareness ng tao na may martial law, nakatuon ang attention natin sa security forces natin. So nakakabawas pa sa mga possible abuses na mako-commit.”
