Philippine law enforcers may soon have more teeth against dangerous crimes like drugs, money-laundering and coups, with a bill filed by Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson allowing wiretaps against those involved in such cases.
Lacson’s Senate Bill 48 seeks to amend Republic Act 4200 to include certain crimes where wiretapping may be deemed lawful under certain circumstances.
“(W)iretapping, though limited in its applications, has been an effective tool by our law enforcement agencies against criminal elements who have wreaked havoc, instability and lack of equanimity in our country to the detriment of many of our peace-loving citizens. Unfortunately, there are still certain crimes that are not covered under the said exceptional cases, which put not only the lives and property of our people in paramount danger, but also pose a grave threat to our nation’s security. The peace-and-order situation in the country gives testament to this fact and thus, it is imperative for us to revisit RA 4200 in order to further enhance its effectiveness,” he said.

Dapat na i-wiretap ng mga awtoridad ang mga linya ng komunikasyon ng mga indibiduwal o grupong sangkot sa ilegal na droga, money laundering at pagpapatalsik sa pamahalaan upang ang mga ito ay madaling mausig at mapanagot sa batas.
Ito ang pangunahing layunin ni Senador at dating Philippine National Police Chief Panfilo Lacson sa paghahain ng Senate Bill 48 na naglalayong amyendahan ang Republic Act 4200 o ang Anti-Wiretapping Law para baguhin ang mga probisyon tungkol sa mga binabantayan na kalaban ng lipunan at mga awtoridad.
“(W)iretapping, though limited in its applications, has been an effective tool by our law enforcement agencies against criminal elements who have wreaked havoc, instability and lack of equanimity in our country to the detriment of many of our peace-loving citizens,” paliwanag ni Lacson sa kanyang panukala.

The public may soon have an easier time transacting with the Philippine government with the establishment of a National Reference System, as provided for in Senate Bill 41, filed by Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson.
Lacson noted it is becoming growingly impractical for a person to remember various numbers issued by government agencies, such as tax identification, student, passport, and government and social security numbers.
Also, Lacson – who headed the Philippine National Police from 1999 to 2001 – said a National Reference System can help government law enforcers deter criminality and terrorism by facilitating the processes of apprehension and prosecution.

Kung isang identification card (ID) na lamang buhat sa pamahalaan ang ibibigay sa publiko, laking ginhawa ang tatamasahin ng mga ito sa pakikipagtransaksiyon sa iba’t ibang mga ahensiya, pampubliko man o pribado.
Ito ang pangunahing adhikain ni Senador Panfilo Lacson sa pagsusulong ng Senate Bill 41 na natutungkol sa paglikha ng National Reference System na nagsusulong na pag-isahin na lamang ang mga ID na iniisyu ng pamahalaan.
Paliwanag ng mambabatas sa kanyang panukala, napakahirap umano para sa isang mamamayang Filipino na isaulo ang mga numero ng iba’t ibang ID na iniisyu ng pamahalaan kaya’t natural lamang babagal ang proseso at transaksiyon ng mga ito.

Speech before the Question Mark Club, Hagonoy, Bulacan
This is my first time to come to Hagonoy to deliver a speech after last year’s elections. I am greatly honored.
Hagonoy has become the home of titans. One of them is my esteemed mentor at the Senate, the Honorable BIas Ople. He has taught me a lot. I have yet a lot to learn from his vast wealth of experience and intelligence. I hope to ripen into a statesman of his stature someday.
Hagonoy is blessed because of Ka BIas. In fact, the entire nation is. Continue reading “My Report Card”
Speech Before Government Association of Certified Public Accountants
First of all, I would like to thank all of you – most specially National President TITO NABUA – for your very kind invitation. I welcome your hand in my new work as Senator. And you can count on my help, too.
This is my first time to address your Association. I am profoundly grateful. And if you plan to invite me again next year, I am now accepting in advance your invitation.
The first thing I want to tell you is what I told my staff as early as June. I told them never to make and take money from anyone and under whatever guise. Public money is for the public, all of it. It must not go to the pocket of any public servant. Continue reading “Prevention and Elimination of Crime: A Key to Moral and Economic Recovery”
