Rules on crime committed on the high seas

Crimes committed on the high seas

After drinking one (1) case of San Miguel beer and taking two plates of "pulutan", Binoy, a Filipino seaman, stabbed to death Sio My, a Singaporean seaman, aboard M/V "Princess of the Pacific", an oversees vessel which was sailing in the South China Sea.

The vessel, although Panamanian registered, is owned by Lucio Sy, a rich Filipino businessman. When M/V "Princess of the Pacific" reached a Philippine port at Cebu City, the Captain of the vessel turned over the assailant Binoy to the Philippine authorities.

An information for homicide was field against Binoy in the Regional Trial Court of Cebu City. He moved to quash the information for lack of jurisdiction.

If you were the Judge, will you grant the motion?

Yes, the Motion to Quash the information should be granted. The Philippine court has no jurisdiction over the crime committed since it was committed on the high seas or outside of Philippine territory and on board a v…

Can you be prosecuted for Bigamy committed abroad?

Can you be prosecuted for Bigamy committed abroad?

Bar Exam 1994

Abe, married to Liza, contracted another marriage with Connie in Singapore. Thereafter,
Abe and Connie returned to the Philippines and lived as husband and wife in the hometown
of Abe in Calamba, Laguna.

Can Abe be prosecuted for Bigamy?

No, Abe can not be prosecuted for Bigamy since the bigamous marriage was contracted or
solemnized in Singapore, hence such violation is not one of those where the Revised
Penal Code, under Article 2 thereof, may be applied extra-territorially.

The general rule on territoriality of criminal law governs the situation.

Disclaimer: This is not a legal advice. For your legal needs, consult a Philippine member of the bar.

Schools of thought in Criminal Law (1996 Bar Exam)

1. What are the different schools of thought or theories in Criminal Law and describe
each briefly?

2. To what theory does our Revised Penal Code belong?


Suggested Answer:

1. There are two schools of thought in Criminal Law, and these are

a. the Classical Theory, which simply means that the basis of criminal liabilities is human free will, and the purpose of the penalty is retribution which must be proportional to the gravity of the offense; and

b. the Positivist Theory, which considers man as a social being and his acts are attributable not just to his will but to other forces of society. As such, punishment is not the solution, as he is not entirely to be blamed; law and jurisprudence should not be the yardstick in the imposition of sanction, instead the underlying reasons would be inquired into.

2. We follow the classical school of thought although some provisions of eminently  positivist in tendencies, like punishment of impossible crime, Juvenile circumstances, are incorporated …
