WATCH: House hearing on the death penalty bill

MANILA, Philippines – The justice committee of the House of Representatives resumes the hearing on the reimposition of death penalty in the Philippines.

The House panel scheduled the hearing for at least 12 death penalty bills filed in the lower chamber less than 2 weeks after President Rodrigo Duterte once again asked lawmakers to reinstate capital punishment via lethal injection for drug-related crimes in his 5th State of the Nation Address on July 27. 

Watch the hearing live on Wednesday, August 5, 9:30 am. –
