MANILA, Philippines — The proposed Anti-Terror Bill that aims to strengthen the Human Security Act of 2007 has shown similarities to ex-President Ferdinand Marcos’ martial law declaration,

“To the contrary, the wide-scale plunder, and suffering of the people and the economy are sufficiently recorded in several of its decisions. Local insurgencies were not suppressed, and our neighbors outstripped us in both human development and hard infrastructures,” she added.

Sereno also claimed that they have listened, when she was still chief justice, to the difficulties encountered by law enforcement agencies in implementing the Human Security Act of 2007, such as legal obstacles.However, she noted that such issues can be fixed with the judiciary simply entering into an agreement with the executive branch, instead of amending the law.

According to Sereno, she assured the executive that the courts would not impede the government’s responsibility to go after terrorists.But the agreement never materialized because the Supreme Court failed to review the constitutionality of the existing law’s substantive provisions that would have been necessary to balance the “implementation difficulties” and the defense of “human dignity and rights”.

Human rights and opposition groups and advocates have voiced their concern about how the Anti-Terror Bill may be used to silence legitimate dissent, as law enforcers can do electronic surveillance and warrantless arrest on individuals viewed as terrorists, and those inciting terrorism.

Others like Vice President Leni Robredo, on the other hand, also questioned the timing of the push for the Anti-Terror Bill since the country is in the middle of a fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Read more: Inquirer »
