Newly-proclaimed Senator-elect Emmanuel "Manny" Pacquiao made it to his first press conference as Upper House legislator and said he is in favor of death penalty.



Speaking to the media shortly after his proclamation Thursday at the PICC, Pacquiao said that the capital punishment is actually based on the Bible.

"Sa Romans 13, basahin natin 'yang one to seven. Malalaman natin 'yan." he said. "Hindi naman ang presidente ang maghahatol niyan, kun'di ang government."
"Sa mata ng Panginoon, hindi bawal 'yan," Pacquiao added

Pacquiao believed that hanging is more "humane" not only for the death convict but also for the medical personnel who have to assist in carrying out the death sentence despite their personal beliefs and convictions.

"Para sa akin bitay, hanging. May batas din ang mga duktor na bawal silang pumatay ng tao," Pacquiao told reporters on Monday afternoon when asked what he favors.

He said it may be considered as barbaric or cruel but it should be implemented if it is enacted into law.

"Pag iko-cover mo yan nakakaawa talaga pero alam naman nila na ang batas natin ay batas. Hindi naman individually yan e, kahit na kaming nasa katungkulan, mga nasa serbisyo, kahit na presidente pag gumawa ng masama e," he said.

A similar measure has also been filed before the House of Representatives by Muntinlupa City Rep. Ruffy Biazon.

Biazon wanted to restore the death penalty for drug traffickers, pushers, and operators of drug dens, as provided for under Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 .

"Wala pa yan pero pag-uusapan naman yan pag naipasa na," he said, adding that the death penalty should be imposed on heinous crimes such as rape with murder, drug trafficking, kidnap for ransom, and robbery with murder.
