As he thanked President Rodrigo Duterte for signing into law the Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020, Sen. Panfilo Lacson vowed to exert extra effort to make sure the new measure is not abused.

In a statement, Lacson said Duterte deserves “much credit” for signing the measure despite pressure coming from different directions.

“Much credit goes to President Rodrigo Duterte. With all the pressure coming from different directions against the signing of the Anti-Terrorism Bill into law, at the end of the day, it is his strong political will that mattered most,” he said.

“I cannot imagine this measure being signed under another administration. If only for this, I take my hat off to the President,” he added.

But Lacson maintained he will keep an eye over the implementation of the new law, to make sure it is not abused.

“Rest assured that I will exert extra effort in guarding against possible abuse in its implementation, notwithstanding all the safeguards incorporated in this landmark legislation,” he said.

Earlier, Lacson said he is ready to join protests if the measure is abused.

“I assure them that I will be the first to stand on the Senate floor and call out those responsible for abuse at the top of my voice in privilege speeches and Senate inquiries, if and when it comes to that, as I have done so before and during this current administration,” he said at the time.
