Statement of Secretary Ignacio R. Bunye Re: Anti-Terrorism Bill
Manila (10 October) -- We urge our lawmakers to seriously consider the safety and welfare of the public.
The lack of an appropriate law to deal with terror groups is already causing demoralization on the part of our security forces, considering that notorious terrorists taken into custody could easily walk away.
We ask the Senate not to aggravate the situation and give the citizenry a good fighting chance against terror.
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. (OPS) [top]
