Manila, Philippines – Tiniyak ng Commission on Human Rights (CHR) ang buong partisipasyon nito sa Senate’s technical working group (TWG) sa usapin ng pagpapatupad ng death penalty sa iligal na droga.

 “The Commission reiterates its position, shared in part by some of the government agencies in attendance at the hearing, that specific proposed provisions in the bill clearly manifest disregard for the rule of law and basic human rights guaranteed by the 1987 Philippine Constitution and enshrined in international human rights laws and principles,” ayon kay CHR Spokesperson and lawyer Jacqueline Ann de Guia.

Punto nito, kontra sila sa panukala at hindi ito solusyon sa problema.

 “Death penalty is not the solution but rather penal and criminal justice reforms that center on human rights-based approaches, which ensure proper accountability and certainty of punishment, in accordance with existing relevant laws,” pahayag pa nito.

“This should ensure that even those drug traffickers who are already incarcerated will be prevented from continuing with their crimes.”

 “In doing so,” she said, “they would hopefully keep the death penalty as it currently is – abolished,” dagdag ng tagapagsalita. RNT/FGDC
