MANILA - President Rodrigo Duterte's former government corporate counsel on Wednesday filed the 5th petition questioning the constitutionality of the Anti-Terrorism Act.

MANILA - President Rodrigo Duterte's former government corporate counsel on Wednesday filed the 5th petition questioning the constitutionality of the Anti-Terrorism Act.

Instead, relying on a certification from Duterte that the bill was urgent, the House of Representatives on June 2 passed House Bill 6875 on second reading, adopting entirely the Senate version of the bill and on the next day, passed it on third reading. The proper procedure, he explained, was for the House to furnish its members copies of the final bill and wait for 3 days after the 2nd reading.

Jurado said that while the accused may waive this right to be detained for no longer than 36 hours should they request for a preliminary investigation, this waiver is for the accused to exercise, not for the ATC to waive. Neither can Congress, he said, effectively amend the Rules of Court provision on warrantless arrest by allowing the Anti-Terrorism Council to authorize arrests without warrant of persons suspected of committing terrorist acts, because the said function belongs to the Supreme Court.
