‘Stop bickering and pass anti-terrorism bill’ - Palace

Quezon City (10 October) -- MALACAÑANG on Tuesday urged senators to stop bickering and pass the anti-terrorism bill.

Press Secretary Ignacio Bunye called on the lawmakers to consider the safety and welfare of the public, which he said would be enhanced with an anti-terrorism law in place.

"We ask the Senate not to aggravate the situation, and give the citizenry a good fighting chance against terror," he said in a news briefing.

The lack of an anti-terrorism law is already causing demoralization among security forces because suspected terrorists taken into custody can easily walk away, Bunye said.

"The passage of the anti-terrorism bill is key not only to the security of the people, but to a sound and safe environment for economic investment and enterprise," he added.

Several opposition senators have been locked in a dispute with the bill's sponsor, Senator Juan Ponce Enrile, over the termination of the period of interpellation on the measure, stalling the passage of the bill anew.

Many in the opposition fear the administration could use the anti-terrorism law against them.

Congress will go on a break starting this week. (PIA) [top]
