Lacson Bill Seeks to Allow Wiretaps vs Coups, Money Laundering, Drug Cases

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.

β€œ(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.

Lacson Bill: Wiretap vs Drug Lords, Money Launderers, Mutineers Papayagan

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.

β€œ(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.
