, Index number: ASA 35/023/1999

Eduardo Agbayani was executed by lethal injection today. President Estrada decided at the last minute to grant a stay of execution, reportedly on the urging of an influential bishop in the Catholic church, but the call from the presidential palace at 3.09 pm came too late. Eduardo Agbayani died two minutes after the call arrived.
