About NO Reason for Martial Law, Not Rebellion and Invasion, Opposition Sen. Risa Hontiveros, sighted (Liberal Party). #HontiMaute
From the televised interview between Daniel Razon of UNTV and Senator Risa Hontiveros, they discussed about the reason for Martial Law … later the senator said, “Kaya lang kasi na napakaSpecific kuya (address to Daniel) yung Rebellion at tsaka Invasion doon sa Constitution”, but the difference is, it is very specific that the Rebellion and Invasion stated in the Constitution.
Rebellion, Uprising, or Insurrection is a refusal of obedience or order. It refers to the open resistance against the orders of an established authority.
The Netizens went after Sen. Hontiveros’ opposition to the ongoing Martial Law (declared by President Duterte on May 23, 2017) in Mindanao, that her (Hontiveros) statement saying there is NO REBELLION and NO INVASION made by the ISIS affiliate Maute/Abu Sayyaf Group.
But, clearly Sen. Hontiveros states a such kind of rebellion should be like, “sasabihin ng mga Marawi Citizens na ayaw na namin sa Rebuplika at kami ay hihiwalay na”, “if the People of Marawi disown their citizenship and have their own Republic” … so, what do you call that ???
The declaration of martial law on May 23 was announced after Islamic State-led Maute/Abu terrorists attacked Marawi City. … so, if there is an attack, does it an act to invade ???
The writ of habeas corpus may be suspended in order to prevent any violence in cases of rebellion or insurrection, as the case may be. In Philippine jurisdiction, the present 1987 Philippine Constitution, Article III, Section 15 provides that “The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended except in cases of invasion or rebellion, when the public safety requires it.” In Article 8, Section 18, there are limitations imposed in case of suspension of the writ of habeas corpus.
Insurrection meaning – n, a violent uprising against an authority or government.
On May 31, the Senate adopted Resolution 388 while the House of Representatives approved House Resolution 1050 supporting the declaration of martial law.
