Senator-elect Bato : Firing squad for drug traffickers

Nothing has changed for the newly elected senator Ronald dela Rosa.

During the campaign he highlighted the need to reinstate death penalty by firing squad for drug traffickers, and his campaign revolved on this campaign promise.

The former Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief just reiterated that he will push in the Senate the reinstatement of the death penalty for drug traffickers.

“I have no other campaign promise or platform when I run for Senator except for death penalty for drug trafficking. I have to do that. The people voted for me and I won with that platform," dela Rosa told reporters in Camp Crame
Dela Rosa clarified that its only the big time traffickers should be  punished with the death penalty.
“Not for all crimes. As I have said, small-time drug peddlers, pushers or users won't be included. My version of death penalty is for drug trafficking, those who flood the country with illegal drugs. There should be a ceiling. For example, if you are caught in possession of at least 1 kilo of shabu, you are classified as drug trafficker. It can be like that,” dela Rosa explained.
He also vowed to create a law that would benefit the national police agency.
"For now, I am asking them (PNP) for input. What do they want me to do in the Senate? Some officials have made suggestions on what can I include in my legislative agenda. We still have to talk about it,” he said.
