  13. 15. <ul><li>Rizal was accused of three crimes: </li></ul><ul><li>Rebellion </li></ul><ul><li>Sedition </li></ul><ul><li>Illegal Association </li></ul><ul><li>Penalty </li></ul><ul><li>Rebellion and Sedition- was from life imprisonment to death. </li></ul><ul><li>Illegal Association- was correctional imprisonment and a fine of 325 to 3,250 pesetas. </li></ul><ul><li>In his supplementary defense he further proved his innocence by twelve points: </li></ul><ul><li>He could not be guilty of rebellion, for he advised Dr. Pio Valenzuela in Dapitan not to rise in revolution. </li></ul><ul><li>He did not correspond with the radical, revolutionary elements. </li></ul><ul><li>The revolutionists used his name without his knowledge. If he were guilty he could have escaped in Singapore. </li></ul>
  14. 16. <ul><li>If he had a hand in the revolution , he could have escaped in a Moro vinta and would not have built a home, a hospital, and bought lands in Dapitan. </li></ul><ul><li>If he were the chief of the revolution, why was he not consulted by the revolutionists? </li></ul><ul><li>It was true he wrote the by-laws of the Liga-Filipina, but this is only a civic association – not a revolutionary society. </li></ul><ul><li>The Liga Filipina did not live long, for after the first meeting he was banished to Dapitan and it died out. </li></ul><ul><li>If the Liga was reorganized nine months later, he did not knoe about it. </li></ul><ul><li>The Liga did not serve the purpose of the revolutionists, other wise they would not have supplanted it with the Katipunan. </li></ul><ul><li>If it were true that there were some bitter comments in Rizal’s letters, it was because they were written in 1890 when his family was being persecuted, being dispossesssed of houses, warehouses, lands, etc… and his brother and brother-in-law were deported. </li></ul>
  15. 17. <ul><li>His life in Dapitan had been exemplary as the politico-military commanders and missionary priests could attest. </li></ul><ul><li>It was not true that the revolution was inspired by his one speech at the house of Doroteo Ongjunco, as alleged by witnesses whom he would like to confront. His friends knew his opposition to armed rebellion. Why did the Katipunan send an emissary to Dapitan who was unknown to him? Because those who knew him were aware that he would never sanction any violent movement. </li></ul><ul><li>Lt. Col. Togores Arjona – considered the trial over and ordered the hall cleared. </li></ul><ul><li>POLAVIEJA SIGNS RIZAL’S EXECUTION </li></ul><ul><li>December 30 – the execution of Rizal at Bagumbayan Field (Luneta). </li></ul>
