The Supreme Court (SC) has decided to hold this January the oral arguments of the petitions against the Anti-Terrorism Law.
In an advisory, the SC informed the parties that the oral arguments is scheduled this Jan. 21 at 2 p.m.
With this, the SC has issued guidelines which the parties should follow and listed essential issues that the parties should stick in the discussions.
“All other matters not covered by the Oral arguments shall not, however, be considered as eliminated issues but shall be discussed and argued in the written memoranda to be required of the concerned parties,” it advised.
“The Members of the Court further maintain their right to ask any question on any relevant matter necessary for the resolution of the issues in these consolidated cases,” it added.
There are currently 37 petitions filed before the SC seeking to void the law for being unconsstitutional.
