Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff took to social media to share their two cents on the controversial anti-terrorism bill.
Both of them made use of their Instagram accounts to cast their doubts on the said bill.
In an Instagram story, Anne posted, “After reading the bill, from my understanding, it's quite broad and vague. Leaving room for different interpretation which could potentially take away each person’s basic rights of freedom of speech and acts of even peaceful protests. That is my understanding to it.”
She also added, “I ask you to read the bill yourself. Take your stand and use your voice to express how you feel.”
Her husband Erwan also penned a lengthy reaction after reading the bill.
“Finally read through the Anti-Terrorism bill. The premise is strong, I mean aren't we all against terrorism? However, like any lengthy legal document things start to get muddled through the beauty of words. By the end of it, I was asking myself: who can decide that someone is a suspected terrorist?” he began.
“More importantly, who gets to define that a certain action can be defined as terrorism or the threat to commit it? If we feel like we need to replace the Human Security Act, why can't more time be spent refining the vagaries found in the document and correcting some of its confusing language? The fairness of the bill will depend on how it's interpreted and implemented and we all know that words can be bent to fit a narrative.”
He furthermore added. “Doesn't the country have more important and pressing issues to tackle? Public Transportation, Public Health, Food Security, etc.”
Erwan, who anticipates harsh comments about his citizenship, also said, “Before any of you get heated in the comment sections with the whole 'you're not filipino' 'go back to your country', i've heard it all before. Just because i hold two passports, doesn't mean i'm not a Filipino Citizen (seems relevant nowadays to mention this).”
