Wag muna magsaya! Gordon says more senators against death penalty but…



Senator Richard Gordon said those senators against death penalty are seen to outnumber those seeking to re-impose it as punishment to heinous crime.

According to Sen. Gordon, after the panel deliberations on measure, only 10 senators are supportive of the death penalty bill at the moment.

“Ang anti mas marami pero hindi natin alam kung iyon ay papasok,” Sen. Gordon said.

Here is the list of senators were against the bill, Franklin Drilon, Bam Aquino, Risa Honteveros, Kiko Pangilinan, Ralph Recto, Chiz Escudero, Antonio Trillanes, Leila de Lima, and Grace Poe.

De Lima said death penalty “is wrong on legal, moral, ethical and constitutional grounds.”

“Hanggang korap at mabagal ang sistemang pangkatarugan sa Pilipinas, walang garantiya na ang parusang kamatayan ay magbibigay ng tunay na katarugan para sa lahat. Katulad ng kasalukuyang extrajudicial killings, ang kaya lamang nito patayin ay ang mga mahihirap,” Hontiveros said.
