WATCH: Angara approves wiretapping vs drug suspects
To boost the government’s anti-drug campaign, Senator Sonny Angara is seeking to legalize wiretapping in investigating cases involving illegal drugs.
“Amendment of the Anti-Wiretapping Law should be prioritized because as it is, hindi sakop doon yung pagbebenta o pagtutulak ng droga,” Angara said in a Facebook post.
At present, Republic Act No. 4200 or the Anti-Wiretapping Law allows law enforcers to wiretap in cases of treason, espionage, provoking war, disloyalty during war, piracy, mutiny in the high seas, rebellion, sedition, and kidnapping.
