State whether or not the law is constitutional.
Explain briefly.
2. A law denying persons charged with
crimes punishable by reclusion perpetua
or death the right to bail. (2%)
SUGGESTED ANSWER:
The law is invalid as it contravenes
Section 13, Article III of the 1987
Constitution which provides that "all
persons, except those charged with
offenses punishable by reclusion perpetua
when evidence of guilt is strong, shall,
before conviction, be bailable by sufficient
sureties, or be released on recognizance
as may be provided by law." The accused
may not be deprived of his constitutional
right to bail even if charged with a capital
offense where the evidence of guilt is not
strong.
