Anti-terror laws in the Philippines

Tuesday, 4 August 2020 - 8:30am to 9:00am

On July 3, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte signed Republic Act 11479, known as the Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020, into law. The law grants sweeping police state powers, including the authorization of warrantless wiretapping and surveillance, and warrantless arrests for up to 24 days of anyone accused by a presidentially-appointed commission of “terrorism.” On today’s program we speak with May Kotsakis, the Co-chairperson of the Philippines Australia Solidarity Association.
