2017 UPDATE: DEATH PENALTY REINSTATEMENT

Death Penalty - House Bill Number 4727

Punish perpetrators of certain drug-related crimes with either life imprisonment or death. The bill allows the execution to be done either through hanging, firing squad, or lethal injection.

Date: March 09, 2017

FINAL VOTE. A total of 272 out of 293 members of the House of Representatives showed up on March 7, 2017, for the 3rd and final reading of the bill reintroducing the death penalty. 217 lawmakers voted yes in favor of the measure while 54 voted against it and 1 abstained.

Presiding Officer: Ilocos Sur 2nd District Representative and Deputy Speaker Eric Singson

Progression: After HB 4727’s approval on 3rd and final reading at the House, the measure will be transmitted to the Senate for another 3 readings.
The death penalty bill has been amended to limit its coverage to drug-related offenses, in a bid to support the administration’s bloody narcotics crackdown that has claimed over 7,000 lives.

RELEVANT INFO:
The bill as it has been amended excluded plunder, rape and treason from the death sentence.

The bill will not impose a mandatory death sentence, giving the judge the leeway whether to impose life sentence or the maximum penalty of death on convicts.

The bill will punish with death or life imprisonment the following drug-related offenses:

  1. importation of dangerous drugs
  2. sale, trading, administration, dispensation, delivery, distribution and transportation of dangerous drugs maintenance of a den, dive or resort
  3. manufacture of dangerous drugs and/or controlled precursors and essential chemicals
  4. misappropriation, misapplication or failure to account for confiscated, seized or surrendered dangerous drugs
  5. planting of evidence

Possession of drugs will only be penalized with the maximum offense of life imprisonment.

The bill stated that the death penalty should not be imposed on children below 18 years old or senior citizens over 70 years of age at the time of the commission of the crime.

The penalty will be carried out by hanging, firing squad or lethal injection.
