Sen. Pacquiao bats for death penalty

Senator Manny Pacquiao has filed a bill calling for the re-imposition of the death penalty. Pacquiao, who authored Senate Bill 185, said during the continuation of a public hearing on extra-judicial killings Thursday, October 13, that “the
legislature must enact a measure that will provide the certainty of punishment and more severe penalties to traffickers as well as a clear application of heavier consequences to law enforcers who protect and coddle violators.” (PRIB Photo by Cesar Tomambo/13 October 2016)*
