Philippine Star- Former Justice secretary and senator-elect Leila De Lima said that she opposes shoot-to-kill orders and the death penalty, proposed by incoming president Rodrigo Duterte to curb crimes in the country. De Lima said the shoot-to-kill order is unconstitutional and death penalty is murder, which is also against the law.
Although she said she is in the minority with her decision to stand against Duterte’s planned policies, she said she will not change her position as she is always against the death penalty. She added that the policy will still undergo debate and scrutiny. READ ALSO: De Lima leaves DOJ with unliquidated P91.896M confidential funds
