SC to hold oral arguments on petitions vs Anti-Terror Law in September
The Supreme Court (SC) is set to conduct oral arguments over the petitions which sought to nullify the Anti-Terrorism Law for being unconstitutional.
“The Supreme Court will also be conducting oral arguments on the 3rd week of September, at the earliest,” SC Spokesperson Brian Hosaka announced on Tuesday (Aug. 11).
“The proper notices will be issued once the date is finalized,” he added.
Hosaka said the decision was made during the SC full court session on Tuesday.
During its en banc session, Hosaka said the high tribunal also “ordered the consolidation of the 6 latest petitions on the Anti Terrorism Act (RA 11479) with that of the 19 petitions earlier filed before the Supreme Court…”
With this, Hosaka said the SC has ordered “the respondents to file their comments to the 6 new petitions within a period of 10 days.”
