Martial law critics unaware of gravity of security threat or just oppose anything Duterte does – Lacson
Will martial law critics finally change their mind after watching the video on the Maute terror group’s planned attack in Marawi City?
Senator Panfilo Lacson said his colleagues have opposed martial law either because they do not understand the gravity of the situation or simply opposed to anything President Duterte does.
Lacson made the comment after admitting he voted in favor of the martial law proclamation in Mindanao after watching the Maute video. The de-classified video was among the security disclosures made by top government officials during a recent closed-door meeting with senators.
He said the Maute video was “what made me decided to vote in favor of the martial law proclamation in Mindanao.”
He said his colleagues still opposed to martial law either did not understand the gravity of security threat or simply opposed to anything President Duterte does.
