The Armed Forces of the Philippines on Thursday welcomed the approval of the implementing rules and regulations of the controversial Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020.

AFP spokesman Major General Edgard Arevalo underscored that the approval of the IRR would surely empower the military to “run after, assist in the arrest and prosecution, and secure our country and people against terrorist organizations, associations, groups, individuals, proponents, and supporters.”

“The AFP is optimistic that the law and its IRR (which provides details and further clarifies the provisions of the law) will be an effective deterrence to terrorists,” Arevalo said.

AFP chief General Gilbert Gapay assured the public that government troops are and will always be committed in protecting and respecting the civil and political rights of every Filipino, according to Arevalo.
