SENADO HATI SA NILAGDAANG ANTI-TERROR BILL

HATI ang mga senador sa tuluyang paglagda ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte sa kontrobersyal na Anti-Terror bill.

Sinabi ni Senador Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, hindi na ito nagulat nang sang-ayunan ni Pangulong Duterte ang nilalaman ng nasabing batas.

“I am not surprised. From Day 1 this Administration unleashed draconian and authoritarian measures as a showcase of its brand of leadership. These draconian measures however have been exposed as nothing more than a show of senseless, mindless violence as means to sow fear amongst the people. From the murderous drug war, to the longest martial law in Mindanao, to the longest lockdown in the world, and now to the anti-terror law,” paliwanag ni Pangilinan.

Sa panig naman ni Senador Panfilo Lacson, na nagsusulong na maging batas ang Anti-Terrorism bill dahil sa hindi na aniya sapat ang Human Security Act sa kasalukuyang sitwasyon ay nagsabing, “Much credit goes to President Rodrigo Duterte. With all the pressure coming from different directions against the signing of the Anti-Terrorism Bill into law, at the end of the day, it is his strong political will that mattered most.”

“I cannot imagine this measure being signed under another administration. If only for this, I take my hat off to the President,” dagdag nito.

Tinitiyak aniya nito na walang magaganap na pang-aabuso sa implementasyon ng naturang batas.

“Rest assured that I will exert extra effort in guarding against possible abuse in its implementation, notwithstanding all the safeguards incorporated in this landmark legislation,” giit nito. (NOEL ABUEL)
