Former Justice Undersecretary Reynante Orceo believes the 'three-fold rule' under the Revised Penal code should be repealed. That rule limits the service of sentence to a maximum of three times the harshest penalty but in no case more than 40 years. Convicted rapist-killer Antonio Sanchez is among the beneficiaries.
