Don’t help Filipino lawbreakers abroad

The way Philippine government officials again tried to intercede for a convicted Filipino drug mule facing death sentence in China, it would not be surprising if other countries see the Philippines as a nation that tolerates drug couriers. If the situation were reversed, it is most unlikely that Chinese government officials would ask the Philippine government to bend its laws for the sake of a convicted Chinese felon. The two countries have different sets of laws and one should respect the other in the manner by which they are being enforced.

Anti-drugs law too harsh; its amendment in order

The recent release of former Rep. Ronald Singson from a Hong Kong prison after serving sentence for dangerous drugs possession provides a stark contrast between the laws of the Philippines and those of Hong Kong. Singson was released after spending only 18 months in prison. In the Philippines, illegal possession of shabu weighing less than five grams is punishable by imprisonment from 12 years and one day to 20 years; if the quantity is more than 10 grams but less than 50 grams, the penalty is life imprisonment.
