WATCH: Poe At De Lima Sinupalpal Ang Plano Ni Duterte Na Magbitay ng 5-6 Na Kriminal Araw-araw
Senators Grace Poe and Leila De Lima both expressed alarm over the proclamation of President Rodrigo Duterte, saying that he will be executing five or six criminals a day once the death penalty is restored.
According to Senator Poe, she was unsettled with President Duterte's plan, saying that though she was in favor of the capital punishment for heinous crimes and repeat offenders as she mentioned during the presidential campaign, she is also seeking for a reform of the judicial system because the poor do not receive adequate legal protection.
“And then you have the pronouncement of the President that he wants five to six kilings, five to six executions a day. That’s a little bit unsettling for me.”
