1 Bill of Rights on Fri Feb 07, 2014 4:36 pm

I've got a Moot Court problem here, and I'm not a Law student, just a Psychology major with a Political Science class. I'm just gonna state the first part of the problem: In 2011, the NBI got a tip from a private concerned citizen about a shabu laboratory in Lapu-Lapu, province of Cebu. Few days thereafter, NBI started surveillance in the alleged Shabu laboratory WITHOUT court order.

Now I'm on the Comission of Human Rights and we argue that the surveillance without court order violates Sec 3 Art 3 (Bill of Rights) Right to Privacy. Is this correct? Did it really violate the Right to Privacy?

No. there was no violation of Section 3, art III. the surveillance was done in accordance with their functions, to investigate possible commission of a crime. NBI is not required to get a court order to do their job. furthermore section 3 of art III pertains to privacy of communication and correspondence. the surveillance (assuming there was no wiretapping) does not violate the law.
