MMDA to lift moratorium on diggings

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) is set to lift on Jan. 16 the moratorium on road works and diggings imposed during the holiday season.

IN 2007, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a “moratorium on the use of the death penalty” in member countries around the world. The resolution proposed a moratorium on executions, with a view to abolishing the death penalty in the future. It was passed by a vote of 104 in favor – the Philippines among them, with 54 against, and 29 abstentions.
