No. 892 Diocese of Marbel, Philippines 08 September 2016
- QUESTIONS RAISED ON WARRANTLESS ARRESTS
“Malacañang’s guideline on the State of National Emergency that allows a warrantless arrest ‘when the person concerned has voluntarily waived his right against such an arrest’ has drawn concern as it might be subject to abuse or cause confusion. (Leila B. Salaverria “Questions raised on Warrantless Arrest”, PDI, Sept. 8, 2016, p. 1).
Those who question are lawyers Rep. Carlos Zarate (Bayan Muna), Ibarra Gutierrez, Rep. Harry Roque (Kabayan Party-List) (op.cit. PDI, p. 2) and Sen. Leila de Lima (GMA News Online)
