Transcript of Interview of Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile

On the Juvenile Justice Act

SP Young people have the discernment already to commit crimes and it is corrupting the young. Traditionally talaga, twelve years old yan.

Q Pagka- twelve years old, alam na nila supposedly ang mga rape, mga heinous crime?

SP Not yet. Yung mga 12 years old, they are not prone to those kinds of crime or problems yet, pero once you reach the age of thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, you can already carry a gun. At the age of seventeen I was in the underground movement already. At the age of fifteen I was hunting birds. Wala akong makain paminsan-minsan, pinahi-hiraman ako ng baril. Nagha-hunting kami ng mga ibon.

Q Mga ilang taon pwede na silang makasuhan?

SP Dose.
