1 Duel really a crime? on Mon Dec 26, 2011 1:33 pm


Arresto Menor
is Section Three. — Duel really a crime?

i just saw this on the Revised Penal code..

Art. 260. Responsibility of participants in a duel. — The penalty of reclusion temporal shall be imposed upon any person who shall kill his adversary in a duel.
If he shall inflict upon the latter physical injuries only, he shall suffer the penalty provided therefor, according to their nature.

In any other case, the combatants shall suffer the penalty of arresto mayor, although no physical injuries have been inflicted.

The seconds shall in all events be punished as accomplices.

Art. 261. Challenging to a duel. — The penalty of prision correccional in its minimum period shall be imposed upon any person who shall challenge another, or incite another to give or accept a challenge to a duel, or shall scoff at or decry another publicly for having refused to accept a challenge to fight a duel.

does it mean na pag naghamon ka ng away\suntokan sa kahit na sino pwede ka kasuhan nito?

duel contemplates use of dangerous weapons under a formal combat setting, not sapakan.
