Oppose death penalty revival, new senators urged

no-to-death-penalty

The Catholic Church’s prison ministry urged new senators to shelve proposals to reinstate the death penalty in the country’s legal system.

Mr. Rodolfo Diamante of the church’s Commission on Prison Pastoral Care, said the legislators should not pass legislations just to please Malacañang.

He said that senators have been elected by the people to work for their welfare and not for President Rodrigo Duterte.

“We urge them to study the bills thoroughly and determine if they will really address the problems of our country,” he said.

Senate President Vicente Sotto III said the revival of capital punishment for high level drug trade crime is possible with the incoming set of senators.

He made the claim as more allies of Duterte, who has been pushing for the measure, are poised to enter the next senate.

Mr. Diamante reiterated that death penalty was never been and will never be a solution to criminality.

“Moreover, it is anti-life, anti poor and will enhance only the culture of violence that is now prevailing in our country,” he warned.

“Don’t give our people a quick fix solution to our people’s problem… They deserve something better,” Mr. Diamante added.
