STATEMENT OF SEN. M.A MADRIGAL ON SIGNING TERROR LAW
This is a dark day for all Filipinos. This law is a license to kill. Hitler did it. Stalin did it. Now Mrs. Arroyo has done it. With the signing of this draconian law, Mrs. Arroyo has arrogated unto herself the powers of a dictator to punish her enemies by branding them as terrorists. Even Rizal and Mandela were labeled as terrorists by oppressive regime.
The UN Special Rapporteur on the Protection of Human Rights while Countering Terrorism has expressed its concerns on how even the Philippines Commission on Human Rights will be used to detain so called terrorists. Lahat tayo ngayon ay para nang tumutulay sa alambre.
Those who have supported and pushed for this law have the blood of the Filipinos in their hands. God Bless us.
