Supreme Court Chief Justice Reynato Puno has criticized the "mindless" crackdown on terrorism at the expense of civil liberties, and said a state with credibility problems could not adequately protect the rights of its citizens.
In a speech during commencement exercises at the University of the East, Puno said responses to terrorism had been "more discomforting" than the act itself.
