DOJ endorses 134 inmates for executive clemency grant

MANILA, Jan. 3 (PNA) -- Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II said on Tuesday that he recommended to President Rodrigo Duterte the granting of executive clemency to 134 inmates.

In a press conference, Aguirre said the list of the inmates came from the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) in Muntinlupa City, the Correctional Institute for Women in Mandaluyong City and other penal colonies operated by the Bureau of Corrections.

The list was already submitted to the Malacanang Palace two weeks ago, Aguirre said.

“I already sent messages to President Duterte and Special Assistant to the President (Christopher) Bong Go to expedite action on our recommendation,” Aguirre said.

Executive clemency is a power of the President to pardon any prisoner, provided for under Article VII, Section 19 of the Constitution and pertains to reprieve, absolute or conditional pardon with or without parole conditions and commutation of sentence.

Parole on the other hand is the conditional release of a prisoner from a correctional institution after he or she has served the minimum of his or her sentence.

The DOJ chief though defended why the recommendation has yet to be acted upon by Malacanang up to now, adding that the President has a lot of things to work on.

“Maaaring natambakan ang rekomendasyon sa dami ng trabaho ng Pangulo,” he said adding he is confident President Duterte will approve the recommendation since the move was in line with his promise to free inmates aged at least 80 and those who have spent at least 40 years behind bars.

He revealed that the list he submitted to the President included elderly and sickly inmates.

The list included 100 inmates recommended for commutation of sentences, 14 for conditional pardon with parole, 18 for conditional pardon without parole and two for absolute pardon.

The DOJ Secretary also said that he made the recommendations for presidential pardon upon endorsement by the Board of Pardons and Parole (BPP) after review of the eligibility of the inmates in the list.

He, however, said he could not recall if the list included political prisoners whom the National Democratic Front (NDF) have asked to be released.

The NDF, which is currently engaged in peace talks with the government to end the long-running armed conflict in the country, is seeking the release of all political prisoners.

But Aguirre said there was no prominent inmate in the list.

Last November, the President Duterte granted pardon to actor Robin Padilla, after he was among those recommended by the BPP for executive clemency.

Padilla, Robinhood Ferdinand Cariño Padilla in real life, a known supporter of Duterte has applied for absolute pardon for his 1994 conviction for illegal possession firearms where he was sentenced with up to 21 years in prison.

He served three years at the New Bilibid Prison in Muntinlupa before being released in April 1997 by then president Fidel Ramos granted over conditional pardon.

Padilla, was granted conditional pardon in 1997 by then president Fidel Ramos after serving several years of the 21-year sentence imposed on him for illegal possession of firearms in 1994.

The BPP earlier said that as of November 2015, it has listed 473 inmates seeking executive clemency.

Under the Aquino administration, only nine inmates were granted clemency. (PNA)
