Bring Back Death Penalty in Philippines sign now

This is a short history about "Death Penalty in Philippines" until it suddenly abolished and crimes gets terribly intense.

Filipinos have mixed opinions about the death penalty, with many opposing it on religious and humanitarian grounds, while others advocate it as a way of deterring crimes.

During Spanish colonial rule, the most common method of executions were shooting by the firing squad (especially for treason/military crimes, usually reserved for independence fighters) and garrotte (a notable case would be the Gomburza).

A prominent example is the country's national hero, Jose Rizal, who was executed by firing squad on the morning of December 30, 1896

In 1926, the electric chair was introduced, by the United States

On April 15, 2006, the sentences of 1,230 death row inmates were commuted to life imprisonment, in what Amnesty International believes to be the "largest ever commutation of death sentences".Capital punishment was re-abolished via Republic Act No. 9346, which was signed by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on June 24, 2006. The bill followed a vote held in Congress earlier that same month whThe penalties of life imprisonment and reclusion perpetua (indeterminate sentence, 30-year minimum) replaced the death penalty.

Critics of Arroyo's initiative called it a political move meant to placate the Catholic Church, some sectors of which were increasing in opposition to her administration.

President Arroyo controversially pardoned many prisoners during her presidency, including a 2009 pardon for all remaining felons convicted for the 1983 assassination of former Senator and opposition leader Benigno Aquino, Jr.
