Art. 72

The civil liabilities of a person found guilty of two or more
offenses shall be satisfied by following the chronological order
of the dates of the judgments rendered against him, beginning with
the first in order of time.

NOTE: The penalties shall be satisfied according to the 
chronological order of the dates of the final judgment. (Art.70)

Art. 70. Successive service of sentence. — When the culprit has
to serve two or more penalties, he shall serve them simultaneously
if the nature of the penalties will so permit otherwise, the
following rules shall be observed:

In the imposition of the penalties, the order of their respective
severity shall be followed so that they may be executed successively
or as nearly as may be possible, should a pardon have been
granted as to the penalty or penalties first imposed, or should
they have been served out.

For the purpose of applying the provisions of the next preceding
paragraph the respective severity of the penalties shall be
determined in accordance with the following scale:
1. Death,
2. Reclusion perpetua,
3. Reclusion temporal,
4. Prision mayor,
5. Prision correccional,
6. Arresto mayor,
7. Arresto menor,
8. Destierro,
9. Perpetual absolute disqualification,
10 Temporal absolute disqualification.
11.Suspension from public office, the right to vote and be voted
    for, the right to follow a profession or calling, and
12.Public censure.

Notwithstanding the provisions of the rule next preceding, the
maximum duration of the convict's sentence shall not be more
than three-fold the length of time corresponding to the most
severe of the penalties imposed upon him. No other penalty to
which he may be liable shall be inflicted after the sum total
of those imposed equals the same maximum period.

Such maximum period shall in no case exceed forty years. In
applying the provisions of this rule the duration of perpetual
penalties (pena perpetua) shall be computed at thirty years.
