Larrañaga is serving his prison sentence in Spain through the Transfer of Sentence Agreement because of his dual citizenship. ADVERTISEMENT “Yung pinaguusapan ay kung saan maiimprison yung person. So, in this case meron tayong agreement with Spain kaya doon sya pero yung substantive law that will govern is still the Philippine law. So, in my opinion, he will still benefit [from the increased GCTA] because he was tried, prosecuted and sentenced under Philippine laws,” Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra told reporters. The Justice Chief said the other six co-accused of Larrañaga also could benefit from the new GCTA rule. “As long as they are eligible, they will benefit from what is written under the law,” said Guevarra. Guevarra said it does not matter if the inmate is high profile or not, as long as they will qualify, their GCTAs will be computed. /muf RELATED STORY: Read more: Inquirer

So sisihin yung mga bobong gumawa sa 2013 Law na yan. Boy Bawi!!! Lord help us... ito na po ba talaga ang Pilipinas? No way up?

#NoToSanchezRelease: Netizens, groups demand justice for rape-slay victimsNetizens question the integrity of the Philippine justice system, wonder which between the rape-slay and impunity is worse

Justice chief: ‘No truth’ to reports on ex-mayor Sanchez’ releaseJustice Secretary Menardo Guevarra tells CNN Philippines that former Calauan, Laguna Mayor Antonio Sanchez won’t be released anytime soon pending review of the 1993 rape-slay case.
