PENALIZING ANY ATTEMPT ON, OR CONSPIRACY AGAINST, THE LIFE OF THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF THE REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES, ANY MEMBER OF HIS CABINET, OR THEIR FAMILIES
WHEREAS, prevailing circumstances require that the Chief Executive of the Republic of the Philippines, the members of the cabinet, and their families, be given ample protection against lawless elements who may attempt on, or conspire against their lives;
WHEREAS, the maintenance of peace and order and national security depends greatly on the security of the lives of our national leaders; and
