En ambos casos, la pena es de "prisión mayor". In both instances the punishment is long-term imprisonment.
Cuando el delito se haya cometido en una situación de emergencia interna o externa, se sancionará con una pena de prisión mayor no superior a los 10 años. When the offence is committed in time of internal or external emergency, the punishment shall be rigorous imprisonment not exceeding ten years.
Se impondrán penas que abarcan desde la prisión mayor en su período máximo hasta la reclusión temporal y una multa no inferior a 50.000 pesos filipinos a toda persona condenada por fabricación, venta, adquisición, posesión o tenencia ilícita de explosivos. The penalty of prision mayor in its maximum period to reclusion temporal and a fine of not less than PhP50,000 shall be imposed upon any person convicted of unlawful manufacture, sale, acquisition, disposition or possession of explosives.
Se impondrá la pena de prisión mayor en su período mínimo y una multa de 30.000 pesos filipinos si el arma de fuego se clasifica como de gran calibre, siempre, sin embargo, que el detenido no haya cometido otro delito. The penalty of prision mayor in its minimum period and a fine of PhP30,000 shall be imposed if the firearm is classified as high-powered, provided however that no other crime was committed by the person arrested.
Entre 1994 y 2001 sólo se dictaron tres condenas por los conceptos mencionados y en dos casos de tres las penas pronunciadas fueron de prisión mayor, por cinco y diez años, respectivamente. Between 1994 and 2001, there were only three convictions for them and in two of the cases the penalty imposed was imprisonment, for 5 and 10 years respectively.
En el presente caso ha concluido que "el artículo 222-36, por ser más severo que las disposiciones vigentes en el momento de los hechos, en cuanto que sanciona esos delitos con penas de 30 años de prisión mayor, es inaplicable en este caso concreto". The Court concluded that "article 222-36, being more severe than the provisions in force at the time of the offence insofar as it punishes such offences with 30 years' rigorous imprisonment, is consequently not applicable in this case".
