- Sen. Bong Revilla said that he personally supports the death penalty
- He added that the death penalty should be given to cases related to drug trafficking and plunder
- However, he mentioned that false accusers must be penalized with death as well
Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. expressed his support to reimpose the death penalty for cases related to plunder and drug trafficking.
However, KAMI learned that Revilla wanted to add that those false accusers should be penalized with death as well.
“I personally support the President’s call to reinstate capital punishment for offenses related to drugs and plunder,” Revilla said, as reported by the GMA News Online (author Amita Legaspi).
“Dagdagan ko lang na dapat may parusa rin na kamatayan for those who falsely and maliciously accuse others of these offenses,” he added.
In a previous report by KAMI, Revilla filed a bill seeking to lower the age of Social Security System (SSS) pensioners to 55 years old.
KAMI also reported before that the Sandiganbayan cleared Revilla of his “pork barrel” case. Revilla was accused of getting P224.5 million kickback from his Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) or pork barrel.
Revilla was detained at the Philippine National Police Custodial Center in Camp Crame from 2014. He was just released last year.
