Lawfare: Vigilance in time of misuse of Law
Professor Teodore Te was the invited speaker in a webinar on Lawfare titled CLAMPDOWN AMID LOCKDOWN: Human Rights Repression in the Philippines during the Pandemic” held on August 22. In a 15minute talk, Law academic, human rights advocate, and legal practitioner Atty. Te honed in on the opaque nature of governance in the country during the COVID-19 pandemic where law and policy are not clearly explained to the public. Lamenting an overly powerful executive branch, a captured congress, and an inscrutable court that lacks predictability, he spoke of the importance of documentation and that the public remain INFORMED, in this period of crisis.
