Iglesia, Quiboloy support ACT-CIS

By MST News | May. 12, 2013 at 12:01am
TWO influential religious groups, the Iglesia ni Cristo and the Davao-based Christian Church of Pastor Apollo Quiboloy, have its support for the Anti-Criminality & Terrorism through Community Involvement & Support (ACT-CIS) partylist.

ACT-CIS Partylist nominee and secretary-general Atty. Samuel D Pagdilao Jr. thanked INC executive minister Eduardo Manalo and Quiboloy for their endorsements, adding that the support could turn the tide in favor of ACT-CIS.

Pagdilao said the support of the two groups will serve as a beacon of inspiration that will guide the ACT-CIS in pursuing its advocacy for “freedom from crime” and lead to legislative measures that will encourage proactive community involvement in addressing criminality as well as terrorism.

Pagdilao said it is the aim of the ACT-CIS Partylist to strengthen community-based anti-crime and anti-terrorism efforts to help the government deal with criminality by empowering the community itself.

Part of the legislative plans of ACT-CIS Partylist is to legislate a law that will give village watchmen the authority of law enforcers with salaries, training, equipment, police power and numbers that is proportionate to the population of the barangay that they serve.

In order to enhance community participation in the prevention, preemption and solution of crimes, ACT-CIS Partylist will push for a law that will provide incentives, livelihood opportunities, education and health benefits, and full protection of the law to individuals who will put their time and efforts in helping the government curb criminality.

To enable the government to better address crimes, ACT-CIS Partylist will also push for the review of the Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act, the Human Security Act, the law that created the Witness Protection Program and the Cybercrime Law.
