Former senator Antonio Trillanes has joined the bandwagon of those who are calling out to junk the controversial ant-terrorism due to concerns about possible abuse.

Trillanes, a known critic of President Rodrigo Duterte, said that people are opposed to the said bill means they do not trust the administration.

 “It should be clear to duterte that the growing #JunkTerrorBill movement is mainly about the people’s lack of trust in his administration. Eat your pride and stand down you fool!” Trillanes said in a Facebook post

The former mutineer also questioned the government’s sincerity to implement the anti-terror law because it even limits the visitation rights of detained senator Leila de Lima.

“Simpleng visitation rights ni Sen. Leila De Lima na napakalinaw sa batas, binabalasubas ni duterte, tapos ineexpect natin syang aayos pag binigyan sya ng mas malupit na kapangyarihan? #JunkTerrorBill,” Trillanes said

He also said that Duterte should not use the anti-terror bill to address communist rebel because it was him who released the rebel leaders after all.

“Several years ago, Gen. Año decimated the NPA leadership without the terror bill. Then duterte won at pinakawalan sila lahat. Now, you’re telling us na kailangan nyo ung terror bill para huliin sila ulit? #JunkTerrorBill,” Trillanes said

Earlier, it was reported that anti-terrorism bill signed by the leaders of both houses of Congress has already been transmitted to the President for his signature.

The said bill seeks to strengthen the Human Security Act of 2007 and punish those who will propose, incite, conspire, participate in the planning, training, preparation, and facilitation of a terrorist act; including those who will provide material support to terrorists, and recruit members in a terrorist organization.

Duterte could either sign the bill into law immediately or veto it. He could also let it lapse after 30 days of receipt without signing it.
