NICA head: Won’t stop vs terrorists

MAITUM, Sarangani (April 16, 2021) - National Intelligence Coordinating Agency (NICA) Region 12 Director Eduardo Marquez talks about violent extremism during The Anti-Terrorism Act forum held at the Municipal Gymnasium on April 13. "We will not stop until these terrorists are still in our community," Marquez said as he encouraged all the 19 barangay chairs and the officials of the Local Government Unit of Maitum to take care and look after their constituents against the New People’s Army and other terrorist groups. The Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020 intends to prevent, prohibit and penalize terrorism in the Philippines. The law was signed by President Rodrigo Duterte on July 3, 2020 and effectively replaced the Human Security Act of 2007. (John James I. Doctor/COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT INFORMATION OFFICE)
