“I am hoping that Congress will revisit the issue of death penalty especially on drug-related cases,” Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista said. The mayor slapped a Chinese drug dealer named Xu Zhen Zhi last week when the Chinese acted disrespectful.
Herbert Bautista slapped Xu Zhen Zhi, then asked “You cannot hear me, you cannot understand me?”
The Chinese man was caught with 10 kilograms of shabu. Bautista told ANC in an interview that illegal drugs only destroy family.
On the other hand, Commission on Human Rights chair Etta Rosales who is also present on the ANC interview said, “The best solution is the certainty of arrest, investigation, the certainty of prosecution, conviction and penalty. That, to me, is what we should focus on.”
Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte said what Bautista did is not enough.
