House adopts amendments to death penalty bill
By Filane Mikee Cervantes

MANILA, Feb. 28 (PNA) -- The House of Representatives on Tuesday night adopted the proposed individual amendments to the death penalty bill.

The lower chamber approved through viva voce voting the amendments to remove the crimes of plunder, rape, and treason from the coverage of the death penalty bill.

With the recent changes, the contentious measure has been watered down by limiting the crimes punishable by death to just drug-related offenses.

The amendments were a result of several House supermajority caucuses.

The bill will be put to a vote on second reading on Wednesday.

The drug-related offenses punishable by death include the following:

(1) importation of dangerous drugs and/or controlled precursors and essential chemicals;

(2) sale, trading, administration, dispensation, delivery, distribution and transportation of dangerous drugs and/or controlled precursor and essential chemicals;

(3) maintenance of a den, dive or resort where any dangerous drug is used or sold in any form;

(4) manufacture of dangerous drugs and/or controlled precursors and essential chemical; possession of dangerous drugs;

(5) cultivation or culture of plants classified as dangerous drugs or are sources thereof;

(6) unlawful prescription of dangerous drugs;

(7) criminal liability of a public officer or employee for misappropriation, misapplication or failure to account for the confiscated, seized and/or surrendered dangerous drugs, plant sources of dangerous drugs, controlled precursors and essential chemicals, instruments/ paraphernalia and/or laboratory equipment including the proceeds or properties obtained from the unlawful act committed. (PNA)
