MANILA – The Philippines’ Supreme Court said on Thursday parts of the country’s anti-terrorism law passed last year were unconstitutional.

The controversial law, signed by Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte in July, 2020, has drawn concern from lawyers and human rights activists who fear it could be used to suppress free speech and harass opponents of the administration.  — Reuters
