SENATORIAL aspirant Raffy Tulfo is opposed to the imposition of the death penalty, saying it is “anti-poor.”
“‘Pag mayaman ka kaya mo mag-hire ng pinakamagaling na abogado, more often than not you’ll get away with it. ‘Pag pobre ka kulong ka, pag minalas-malas ka death penalty ka,” Tulfo said.
“Ang nabibitay lang dito ‘yung mga mahihirap na walang pambayad sa mga abogado, at walang panlagay, sorry ah, sa mga lespu,” he added.
Tulfo said that he would not support the continuation of President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs, saying it is a “failure.”
“Definitely a failure, siya (Duterte) mismo umamin niyan kasi sinabi niya in 6 months’ time maso-solve niya na ang problema sa drugs then lately siya mismo umamin na ‘di ko pala kaya, kala ko kaya,” he said.
Tulfo said he will push for more rehabilitation centers for drug addicts if he wins a Senate seat.
