Press Release

The SC decision is a vindication of the position of 16 senators as expressed in the Senate Resolution 461 and adopted unanimously. The said resolution condemned the acts that followed from PP1017 particularly the raid on the Daily Tribune, and the banning of all protest actions and the warrantless arrests of Randy David and other citizens undertaken by law enforcement agencies as ordered by the Executive Department. The acts that followed from the Proclamation have been declared as illegal and rightly so. Two Senate subcommittees found the Executive department liable for the acts committed in pursuance of PP1017. This should serve as a stern warning and a reminder to all that as public officials, we must act within the confines of the rule of law and the Constitution.
