The new anti-terror bill has been opposed by many Filipinos and netizens on social media due to the supposed possibility of the bill being used to silence and imprison critics of the government.

The Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020 extends the number of days suspected terrorists can be detained without a warrant – from three days under the current law to up to 14 days, which can be extended for another 10 days.

The bill also removed the provision under the Human Security Act that a person wrongfully accused of terrorism must be paid half a million pesos in damages for each day he or she is detained.

Any person who shall threaten to commit any act of terrorism, propose any terroristic acts or incite others to commit terrorism will be imprisoned for 12 years, under the new bill. It also allows the authorities to conduct a 60-day surveillance on suspected terrorists and force telcos to divulge their calls and messages.
