Repost: Malacañang Reacts to Response of Miss Universe Catriona Gray on Lowering Age of Criminal Responsibility

Video courtesy of YouTube: GMA News


Malacañang said that Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray may have been misinformed about the bill which seeks to lower the minimum age of criminal responsibility from 15 years old to 12.

Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo made the statement after the Filipina beauty queen expressed her opposition to the said bill, adding that the government should instead focus on addressing the reasons why children commit crime.

“I would rather that the efforts be refocused to why those children may be committing those crimes. Because working with kids, you know that when they’re that young–when they’re 11, 12, or nine years old–they’re not developed in that way, cognitively, to make decisions knowing full well the consequences,” Gray said in an interview with GMA News.

“So I would rather address the focus to what can we do to get the children out of those circumstance that they may be pressured in that way to do something,” she added.

In his Thursday press briefing, Panelo said Gray should be educated about the bill, but said they agree with her that the problems of the troubled children should be addressed.

“She should be educated. She may have been misinformed of the facts given that the opposition to the lowering comes from yung mga dating kritiko ng administrasyon (old critics of the administration),” he said.

“Yung sinasabi niya na focus on the problems, kasama yun eh (She’s saying that we should focus on the problems. That’s part of it). When you lower the criminal liability, kasama yun (that’s already part of it),” he added.

Panelo then explained to Gray that children in conflict with the law will not be put in jail with hardened criminals, but rather rehabilitated before being sent back to society.

“Sa batas nakalagay doon yung rehabilitation. Ang focus nga rehabilitation, eh (Rehabilitation is what is stated in the law. So the focus is rehabilitation). So you are solving precisely the problem why these people are engaged in crimes,” he said.

“Miss Universe hindi naman ikukulong. Ire-rehabilitate nga natin. Kaya tama ka doon (Miss Universe, they will not be jailed. We will rehabilitate them. So you are right when you said that), let’s focus on the problem. We are precisely focusing on the problem. Because the problem is they’re engaged in crimes,” he added.

“So what will we do? We will have to rehabilitate them. Learn why they have committed these crimes, and then put them back to society,” he continued.

The Palace official, however, commended Gray for voicing out her opinion on the matter, saying she just proved that she has genuine concern for children.

“But I’m glad she mentions it. It only means that she’s also concerned, which every Filipino citizen should have–a kind of concern,” Panelo said.

Gray is known to have worked with children and for advancing their welfare even before she joined the Miss Universe pageant.

Earlier, President Duterte said he is comfortable with the proposal of the House of Representatives to lower the minimum age of criminal liability from 15 years old to 12.

Currently, the Juvenile Justice or Welfare Act exempts children 15 years old and below from criminal liability. However, President Duterte has been repeatedly expressing that this measure is being abused by criminals who use minors to get away with their crimes.

    1. Ang pinagtataka ko is anong pinagtatalunan? Pag ang batas is for example is Stealing is Death Penalty syempre pagsasabihan nung mga magulang o sila mismong mga bata ang mag-iisip na pagnagnakaw Death Penalty. So me magnanakaw pa kaya? Or mag-iingat sila habang nagnanakaw Sign of the Cross muna para hindi mahuli at me proteksyon.

    2. Yes, may kanya-kanyang opinion but the point is before ka magbigay ng opinion mo, make sure you fully read/understand the proposed law. Honestly, nung una ayaw hindi ako pabor but when I read it, naging pabor na ako.

    3. Ang point ni Cat is instead sa dulo ka gumawa ng action like penalizing minors..why not solve it through the root cause which is poverty. Less poverty, less crimes committed

    4. Despite this admin's way of delivering or address itself to the public and some of its official or members angered/annoyed/irritates me, i'm grateful to some implememtation they have as what 2:38 says. I hope that the next admin will continue to support or improve some of the works they have (likely to environmental and health benefits).

      Ps. Im really grateful that they also implemented the 'no videoke after 10 or 11 pm'

    7. Masaya ako sa mga nasabing improvements pero sa totoo lang, di rin tayo dapat manghang mangha dahil yan yung purpose or job ng mga public officials to begin with. They are not doing anything beyond their mandate na dapat nating purihin ng sobra. And besides yung mga nasabing improvement ay palamuti lang o barya and inasikaso dahil may hidden agenda and for the benefit of others if you know what i mean. We really need to be more demanding and expect bigger changes that will benefit everyone.

    9. Bawal kumuda?! Last time I checked, may freedom of speech.

      Her point is focus on the reason why crimes are commited by children. Preventive ho, Mr. Panelo. Hindi yung criminal liability ng ginawa ng bata. Baka naman kasi kung paaaralin ng maayos ang bata, may makakain na maayos at may bubong na matitirahan eh hindi na magiging criminal yung bata. Hindi yung pag nakulong na sa juvee saka nyo aayusin kuno. Ganown! I thank you, bow!

    12. What exactly has been implemented na more than past admins combined ang worth? Videoke? Smoking? Press release sa cleanups na matagal nang ginagawa at cosmetic lang at hindi sustainable (water quality standards balik sa dati after a few days ng cleanup)

      pakitaasan naman mga standards, guys. Sobrang taas ng inflation, ang lala pa rin ng traffic, murder rates are up, nagworsen nga ang quality of life pero makasuporta lang talaga, no. Push natin yang satisfaction sa admin dahil sa videoke eo na hindi lahat ng brgy tumutupad.

    13. Matitigas lang talaga ang ulo ng mga Pilipino, hindi naman lahat. Walang takot sa batas, walang disiplina, gusto lagi easy money, at reklamador. Sana ikulong din ang magulang ng mga batang gagawa ng labag sa batas. May mga magulang din na ginagamit ang anak para mabilusang kumita ng pera. At death penalty sana sa sindikato na gagamit ng mga bata sa paggawa ng krimen.

    14. 1:12 Pinaka sensible na comment na nabasa ko. Kung ikukumpura sa past admin, mas lumala pa tayo ngayon talaga. Ramdam naman ang hirap. This admin is so good magpaikot ikot ng tao.

    8. Pwede kasing iwasan ang rehab by providing proper meals in public schools, or maayos na housing, or more jobs para sa mga magulang nila. Or offer more scholarships and put up more public schools. Increase din ang bayad ng public school teachers para sa pagtuturo sila magfocus at hindi sa pagbenta ng tuna sandwich at yema. Soup kitchens and more feeding programs. Maraming paraan, hindi yung hihintayin pang magnakaw yung bata para ayusin! Ang labo ni Panelo, kairita

  19. The government should really educate first the people about the implementation of the law which unfortunately the government cannot even address properly... If the goal is the same, why is it coming off that the children 12 to 15 y/o are just simply put in bars just like the rest of the criminals 15 y/o and above.. And another question, how's the rehabilitation of those minors 15 y/o to 17 y/o? How about those 18 y/o and above? Why are we lowering the age if we can't even rehabilitate properly those that are 18 y/o and above? Nauuna kasi ang corruption at pangangampanya para sa darating na eleksyon..
