A wide range of heinous crimes ranging from drug-related offenses to treason, terrorism and human trafficking will be punishable by death, according to a bill filed by Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson.
Lacson, who headed the Philippine National Police from 1999 to 2001, noted an alarming surge of heinous crimes in recent years has shown life imprisonment, in lieu of death penalty, is not a deterrent to grave offenders.
“Hence, to reinstate public order and the rule of law, there is an impending need to revisit and re-impose the death penalty on certain heinous crimes which as ratiocinated by R.A. 7659 or the Death Penalty Law, ‘is appropriately necessary due to the alarming upsurge of such crimes which has resulted not only in the loss of human lives and wanton destruction of property but also affected the nation’s efforts towards sustainable economic development and prosperity while at the same time has undermined the people’s faith in the Government and the latter’s ability to maintain peace and order in the country,’” he said.

Dahil hindi kayang takutin ng habambuhay na pagkabilanggo o life imprisonment ang paggawa ng ilang krimen, itataas na sa Mataas na Kapulungan ng Kongreso ang kamatayan bilang parusang igagawad sa mga mapapatunayan sa ilang mabibigat na kriminalidad.
Ito ay nakasaad sa panukalang isinumite ni Senador at dating Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Panfilo Lacson para sa muling pagpapatupad ng parusang kamatayan sa hangaring mabawasan ang patuloy sa paglaganap na kiminalidad sa bansa.
