Bato Pushes Death Penalty To Simplify Everything
RONALD “BATO” DELA ROSA – Senator Bato Dela Rosa reinforced the need to bring back capital punishment amidst the Good Conduct and Time Allowance (GCTA) controversy.
During an interview on ANC’s Headstart, Dela Rosa said that restoring death penalty would simply things. This statement was with regards to the released heinous crimes convicts under the GCTA law.
Aside from this, the Senator then stated that Death Penalty cures everything. He added that drug lords can’t conduct their business if they’re dead.
Dela Rosa was also questioned about his previous statements regarding Antonio Sanchez deserving a second chance. The former Calauan mayor, Antonio Sanchez was convicted for the death of two UP students back in 1995.
To clarify this, Dela Rosa stated that what he meant was Sanchez deserved a chance “according to the law”. He added that he needs to be released because it’s in the law.
In the ANC interview, Dela Rosa stated that Sanchez should’ve been hung sooner. “Dapat binitay na yan noon pa, e wala tayong death penalty e,” the senator added.
In relation to this, the Former Bureau of Corrections Chief said that they have closely monitored Sanchez. He added that Sanchez is now a changed man.
In addition, the senator said that he wanted the death penalty for drug traffickers. This would now include Sanchez after he was caught with illegal drugs in the past years.
However, senator Dela Rosa was also dragged into the GCTA controversy as well. This was due to the senator being the former head of the BuCor.
Dela Rosa’s term in BuCor lasted for about six months. During his term, the Senator admitted to signing the release orders of 120 heinous crimes convicts.
