On Monday, July 27, President Dutere delivered the SONA at the Session Hall in Batasang Pambansa Complex.

It ran for about one hour and 20 minutes and was attended by selected officials only.

During the SONA 2020, the president mentioned about reviving the Death Penalty through lethal injection to fight the crimes in the country, such as illegal drugs.

While his statement is receiving a backlash from the opposition, other allies of the president including former Special Assistant to the President (SAP)-turned-Senator Bong Go has expressed support with the president.

Here’s the full statement of Senator Bong Go:

“Buo ang aking suporta sa muling pagbanggit ni Pangulong Duterte na talakayin ang pagbalik ng death penalty para sa mga heinous crimes involving illegal drugs. Mas palalakasin pa po natin ang kampanya laban sa iligal na droga at iba pang salot sa lipunan. As the President said, freedom from illegal drugs, terrorism, corruption, and criminality is, in itself, a human rights.”
