Pag Inabuso ang Anti-Terrorism Law, Ping Sasama sa Martsa

Kung naging mapanuri na siya noong tinatalakay pa lamang ito sa kanyang komite sa Senado, mas maigting na pagbabantay ang gagawin ni Senador Panfilo Lacson oras na maging batas na ang Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020.

Tiniyak ito ni Lacson bilang tugon sa mga nagpapahayag ng pagkabahala at pagkatakot sa magiging uri ng pagpapatupad ng mga awtoridad oras na ganap nang maging batas ang panukala.

Ayon kay Lacson, hindi biro ang pinagdaaanan sa Senado ng naturang panukala para lamang matiyak ang paglagay ng safeguards, kaya hindi niya papayagan na masalaula ang implementasyon nito.

“The Anti-Terrorism Bill is the wrong tree to bark up. I vow to join those who are concerned, genuinely or otherwise, about the proposed law’s implementation to be as vigilant in monitoring each and every wrongful implementation by our security forces, even to the point of joining them in street protests, just like what I did before during the time of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo,” mariing pahayag ni Lacson.

Lacson Ready to Join Street Protests if Anti-Terrorism Measure Abused

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson on Sunday vowed to closely monitor and call out potential abuses in the implementation of the Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020, should it become law.

Lacson said he will not allow anyone to pervert the legislative intent of the measure that he had painstakingly sponsored on the Senate floor.

“The Anti-Terrorism Bill is the wrong tree to bark up. I vow to join those who are concerned, genuinely or otherwise, about the proposed law’s implementation to be as vigilant in monitoring each and every wrongful implementation by our security forces, even to the point of joining them in street protests, just like what I did before during the time of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo,” he said.
