Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra (TOTO LOZANO / PRESIDENTIAL PHOTO / FILE PHOTO / MANILA BULLETIN) “The DOJ has come up with first draft and that draft will be submitted to ATC (Anti-Terrorism Council) for their consideration,” Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said during an interview over ANC. The secretary noted that under Republic Act 11479, the Anti-Terrorism Law, the DOJ and the ATC were given 90 days since the law took effect in July to come out with the IRR. “Kung wala masyado changes (If no more changes will be made), we are hoping to finalize and promulgate the IRR before the end of the 90 day period,” he said. The secretary noted that in drafting the IRR the DOJ has “received inputs from the law enforcement agencies.” “We have factored their inputs doon sa draft na ginawa ng DOJ (in the DOJ’s draft IRR),” he said. Guevarra also pointed out the drafting of the IRR was carefully being made considering that there are over 30 petitions which have been filed before the Supreme Court (SC) questioning the constitutionality of the Anti-Terrorism Law. “We are trying also to address kung ano sinasabi nila na kulang o malabo in the law (We are trying to address the complaints of the petitioners concerning what the law lacked and the unclear provisions),” he said. “Those that can be remedied through the IRR, then we will do so,” he assured. “That is why we are tyring to be very careful about this para ma address namin lahat (so that we can address everything),” Guevarra added......»»
