The Incoming President Rodrigo Duterte gives his stern warning to criminals saying that criminals “should not be afraid” because they will “surely die” as he pushed for the reimposition of the Death Penalty in the country.
“Dito hindi ka na kailangan matakot. Talagang mamamatay ka. Because this part of the law says, this is retribution. Magbayad ka sa ginawa mo.” Duterte said during his speech
“That’s why I am asking for the reinstatement of the death penalty so that I can hang them” he added.
He pointed that death penalty in the past administration were never effective “it never deterred the criminals from committing their acts. But of course, because they never implemented the law. Wala ngang pinapatay so paano sila ma-deter”.
