11 Capiz towns express support to anti-terrorism bill
ROXAS CITY, Capiz, July 1 (PIA) – Eleven towns in Capiz have already manifested support to the anti-terrorism bill that would further help peace and order in the country.
Based on the record of the Capiz Police Provincial Office (CPPO) as of June 29 the municipalities of Cuartero, Dao, Dumalag, Ivisan, Maayon, Mambusao, Panay, Panitan, Pilar and Tapaz have expressed their support to the Bill.
“Let us help one another by signifying our support on the manifesto so that we could convey that Capiz is supporting the anti-terrorism bill,” said CPPO-Provincial Operation Management Unit acting chief Maj. Renante Matillano, during a Provincial Peace and Order Council meeting, early this week here.
Matillano presented the CPPO’s accomplishments, in the presence of Capiz police director Col. Julio Gustilo, Jr., before the Council members that also included in attendance local chief executives and local government unit’s (LGUs) representatives, among others.
He added that the report will reach Camp Crame and the President will eventually see who among the LGUs have not yet showed support to the legislation aimed at fighting the threat of terrorism while protecting human rights and civil liberties of the people.
“The remaining LGUs are on process,” he added, noting that coordination efforts have also been made for the support of the province as an LGU on the measure that is now awaiting the signature of President Rodrigo R. Duterte.
The province is composed of 16 towns and one component city. (JBG/AAL/PIA Capiz)
