Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III is glad to have found an ally for the anti-terrorism bill in Leyte Rep. Lucy Torres.

Sotto expressed admiration for Torres after she posted a lengthy explainer on the bill on Instagram. In her post, the congresswoman said the proposed Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020 is necessary to give teeth to the government’s campaign against terrorism.

She also clarified some provisions in the bill, which critics claim may lead to human rights abuses.

“Congresswoman Lucy Torres Gomez makes a very compelling thesis in her ig on why we should prioritize the fight vs terrorism. Beauty and brains! @iampinglacson,” Sotto tweeted.

Sotto has said that only terrorists and their supporters will fear the bill, which is awaiting President Rodrigo Duterte’s signature.
