Death penalty bill to be approved by House before Christmas

SHARE:

The House speaker said that they plan to approve death penalty before Christmas break.

House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez announced their plan to approve the death penalty bill on third and final reading before Christmas break.

“I don’t know with the Senate, I don’t control it, but as far as the House is concerned, we will approve it before the Christmas break,” he said.

“If they want to hang them, shoot them by firing squad, it’s up to them. The criminals would be dead either way,” he added.

Alvarez also defended the reimposition of death penalty, reasoning out that it was not and efficient punishment in the past as it was not frequently implemented.

“Before they speak, they should look at the record first. How many were killed? It had not been a deterrent because they kept on objecting, so it was not implemented,” he said.

“What if it had been implemented like in Indonesia, where you will be executed if they say so?” he added.

However, Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman, strongly disagrees to the House's plan and is eager to stop it.

“That projection is consistent with the alarming emergence of a culture of death and violence. It is a deadly Christmas gift,” he said. “It took me almost 20 years to crusade for the abolition of the death penalty, which is anti-human rights, a non-deterrent and anti-poor. I will oppose the reimposition if it takes me another 20 years,” he said.
