Revival of Death Penalty in Philippines?

Philippine House of Representatives House Bill 4882 is entitled, 'An Act Restoring the Death Penalty Repealing R.A. No. 9346 and for other purposes'. It was filed on 31st July by Congressman Representative Bienvenido M. Abante of the 6th District Manila. The Bill is currently under the Committee on the Revision of Laws.
Congressman Abante is a pastor of the Metropolitan Bible Baptist Church. Bill 4882 seeks to revoke the law that repealed the death penalty. If the Bill succeeds up to 1000 prisoners will again be on Death Row, awaiting execution.
