Execution

March 30, 2011 § 6 Comments

“3 convicted Filipinos in China had been brought to the execution chambers this day, March 30, 2011.”

Habang naglilibot sa mundo ng Twitter, nabasa ko ang twit na ito. Sa totoo lang, wala akong ideya na ngayong araw na pala bibitayin ang tatlo nating mga kababayan sa China. Hindi naman kasi ako masyadong nanonood ng mga balita sa TV, o nakikinig sa mga balita sa radyo. Paulit-ulit lang kasi.. krimen, dito, krimen doon.

Wala ako sa lugar para ijudge ang tatlong taong ito. Pero ang alam ko lang, guilty man sila o hindi, they are still human beings. They are still Filipinos. And I think they still deserve our prayers. May God bless their souls.. I can’t imagine what it would feel like. Yung alam mo na, seconds away… mamamatay ka na. Helpless. Gawd, nakakalungkot.

Eto po ang official statement ng Presidental Spokesperson na si Edwin Lacierda.

Statement of Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda:
On the execution of Ramon Credo, Sally Ordinario-Villanueva, and Elizabeth Batain in Xiamen, China on March 30, 2011

“We have been informed that Ramon Credo, Sally Ordinario-Villanueva, and Elizabeth Batain were administered lethal injections to carry out the sentence imposed by the courts of the People’s Republic of China this morning. Our government had taken every available opportunity to appeal to the authorities of China for clemency in their cases, to which the Chinese government responded with a postponement of the execution. In the end, however, the sentence was imposed

The nation sympathized with the families of the condemned, sharing their sense of looming loss. We sympathize with these families now. Their deaths are a vivid lesson in the tragic toll the drug trade takes on entire families.

We are resolved to ensure that the chain of victimization, as pushers entrap and destroy lives in pursuit of their trade, will be broken. Those who traffic in illegal drugs respect no laws, no boundaries, and have no scruples about destroying lives. Our response must be relentless, with government and the citizenry working together to ensure vigilance and mutual support to prevent our countrymen from being used by drug pushers as sacrificial pawns, whether at home or abroad.”

Sana ay magbigay rin ito ng aral sa ating lahat. Nakakalungkot na pangyayari, pero let’s all grieve, learn and move on. Sabi nga ni Jim Paredes sa kanyang twit, “Let us grieve and cry buckets of tears. Then, process the experience and wake up. Learn, resolve to move on to a higher knowledge and consciousness. And lastly, CHANGE.”

Wala na akong masabi… :(
P.S.
Hindi ko alam kung agree ako o hindi, na ibalik ang death penalty. Kasi it is so inhumane. And no one has the right to take a life. Still, it may be inhumane but it could be effective in lowering the crime rates sa bansa natin. COULD BE. People who destroy and take lives with no ounce of guilt, deserve death. Aaah! Ewan ko. Di ko alam. Ikaw ba.. ano ang stand mo sa death penalty?

  • >death penalty? sa tingin ko lng din kahit meron tayo nun hindi din baba ang crime rate, pag ang tao gagawa ng kasalanan hindi na yun mag-iisip ng consequence, parusa o kahit na ano, basta ang importante, gawin nila ang kailangan nilang gawin…kaya ganun din…kung ako ang tatanungin hindi ako agree sa death penalty since hindi natin talaga alam kung sino ang may sala o wala…marami ang nakakulong ngayon na wala kasalanan…tpos minsan ang mga dahilan ng maraming kasalanan kadalasan nasa kongreso na at hindi naman makasuhan…:)

    >I don't agree with capital punishment either.However, I can't blame the Chinese authorities for it. We must remember that Buddhism is one of the dominant religions in China, and throughout history, most Buddhist nations have imposed death penalty for some crimes.My thoughts are with the families of the condemned.
