UPDATE: CRIMES PUNISHABLE BY DEATH NOW ONLY DOWN TO ONE, HOUSE DROPPED TREASON AND PLUNDER






The House Majority came out with a decision in a caucus to whittle down the controversial bill reimposing the death penalty to cover only 3 offenses.

The three offenses are drug-related crimes, plunder and treason.

 House Majority Leader Rodolfo Farinas told reporters after the caucus that they have decided to whittle the offenses down to 3 cases for the meantime.


Farinas  said that they could add other offenses if the Senate passes the bill, giving justification on the decision to drop other crimes from the coverage of the bill, including rape.



Justifying the inclusion of treason in the list, Fariñas said that it serves as a warning to the public that "giving aid and comfort to the enemy is against the state and it is a heinous crime which will merit the death penalty depending on circumstances."

The majority also issued an ultimatum to critics of the bill to maintain a quorum in plenary sessions or a vote on the measure will be set on February 28.





Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez previously told reporters that plunder will be dropped from the list but after the caucus Monday, the decision has been to keep it in the bill.
 "The media had the notion that it was removed from the bill. We did not remove anything in fact the bill as it stand includes plunder and 20 other offenses," Fariñas said.

The cases included in the death penalty bill originally are the following:

 The Death Penalty bill otherwise known as the House Bill 01 has been approved in the House of Representative  and is only awaiting for the decision of the plenary to be implemented. What are the provisions of the Death Penalty Bill and what crimes can get you executed?
