An official of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) expressed hopes that the case of former Calauan, Laguna Mayor Antonio Sanchez will not be used as an argument for the revival of death penalty.

“Sana po huwag naman itong maging argumento kasi parang ganoon ang ginagawa …Kaya nga sinasabi namin pinupulitika yan ngayon na mainit yung pagsusulong ng parusang bitay baka gawin pa nilang argumento yan,” said Bro. Rudy Diamante, executive secretary of CBCP – Episcopal Commission on Prison and Pastoral Care in an interview with Radio Veritas.

The former Calauan, Laguna mayor may soon be released in prison due to Republic Act 10592, which increases the good conduct time allowance for inmates.
