This report is from Amnesty International dated June 7, 2006.
Amnesty International welcomes today’s passage of legislation abolishing the death penalty by the Philippine Congress.

Amnesty International now appeals to President Arroyo to sign the approved legislation into law.
On 6 June, both the Philippine Senate and the House of Representatives voted to repeal Republic Act 7659, just days before adjournment at the end of this week. Details here.
Madam President, it is now in your hands. Make it real!
