Senator Imee Marcos is pushing for the revival of death penalty despite opposing it in the past.

The Ilocos Norte politiko made the call following the recent release of the decision on the Maguindanao massacre.

Some Ampatuan family members were found guilty while many others were acquitted.

Marcos said the death penalty’s revival should be given serious thought “for crimes of an unimaginable level of brutality and inhumanity, as in the Maguindanao massacre.”

“The scope of the Revised Penal Code at present does not fathom the horror suffered by the relatives of the brutally murdered victims, specially of the Mangudadatu family and the orphaned children of scores of journalists,” she added.
