The Supreme Court on Monday canceled the resumption on Tuesday of oral arguments on the 37 petitions contesting the terror law after some magistrates went into isolation as a precaution against the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

Clerk of court Edgar Aricheta said the fourth day of the court proceedings on the pleadings challenging the constitutionality of Republic Act No. 11479, or the Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020, was moved to March 2 at 2:30 p.m.


A court insider said the regular weekly full-court session of the high tribunal on Tuesday had also been reset.

It was not clear if one of the 15 justices or their staffers had tested positive for the new coronavirus or were exposed to people who had contracted the virus. INQ
