Gutoc to Pacquiao, Go: Revive pro-life, not pro-death bills
Marawi civic leader Samira Gutoc has called on lawmakers to prioritize the passage of bills improving law enforcement and prison reform instead of measures seeking the return of death penalty.
“Revive pro life, not pro death bills,” she tweeted. “Patayin muna ang kagaguhan sa loob ng rehas at enforcement ng walang inosentet batang nakukulong,” said the former Otso Diretso senatorial candidate added.
Pacquiao and Go earlier filed bills seeking to reinstate capital punishment in the country ahead of the opening of the 18th Congress. Both senators want the return of death penalty for drug-related offenses.
