Headline: ASIA/PHILIPPINES – Manila priests oppose anti-terrorism law
Manila – The anti-terrorism bill has “vague, amorphous and deleterious” provisions that will only do more harm than good to the people. The bill very clearly and concretely derogates from some established legal principles that are aimed at protecting fundamental human rights. With these observations, the priests of the Archdiocese of Manila openly share the appeal of several civil society groups who, alarmed by the possible consequences, have invited President Rodrigo Duterte not to sign the anti-terrorism law, approved at the beginning of June 2020.
