Palace urges Senate anew to pass anti-terrorism bill

Bacolod City (11 October) -- Picking up from the bombing of an airport project in Silay City, Negros Occ., Malacañang renewed its plea to the senate to approve the anti-terrorism bill still under heated discussion in the chamber.

“The continued terror threat should move legislators to swiftly act on the pending anti-terror bill because this will complement and greatly augment the government’s unrelenting anti-terrorism campaign,” officials said.

At dawn of October 8, about 30-armed men in military attire stormed an airport project in Silay City. They bombed a cement patching plant, a generator and carted away with about 20 shotguns and revolvers from the guards that took them 30 minutes to disarm.

Damaged was placed between P30 to P60 million as military admit intelligence and security lapses that led to the incident.

“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,” Press Sec. Ignacio Bunye said.

“We ask the senate not to aggravate the situation and give the citizenry a good fighting chance against terror,” he added.

Palace views the passage of the anti terrorism bill as key to the security of the people and a sound and safe environment for economic investment and enterprise.

“With a consistent and effective battle against containing terrorist activity, the Filipinos can create the ideal peace and order situation in which the economy can continue to thrive.” (PIA-LOL) [top]
