Dispatch from Crame No. 564:
Sen. Leila M. de Lima's statement on planned reinstatement of death penalty law


Sa panahong ito na napakadaling maghain ng mga trumped-up charges (Exh. "A": my drug cases, and the latest sedition case), lubhang delikado at mapanganib ang magkaroon na naman ng death penalty.

It is another potentially lethal and diabolical weapon to be used against dissenters and perceived enemies of the state.

No! No! No to death penalty! Not under this repressive and vindictive regime. Not under a weak, corrupt and compromised justice and political systems. Not ever!
