Guevarra seeks budget increase for BuCor

Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra will ask Congress for a P100 million increase in the 2020 budget of the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor).

Before facing the Senate for the budget hearing scheduled on Wednesday, Nov. 20, the Secretary said that he met with BuCor Director General Gerald Bantag at the Department of Justice (DOJ) on Tuesday, Nov. 19.

Since Bantag took over last September, the BuCor chief has been implementing measures to rid the Bureau of corruption and clean up state penitentiaries of illegal activities.

However, concerns were raised that undeserving inmates might be benefiting from the law after it was revealed that rape-slay convict former Calauan, Laguna Mayor Antonio Sanchez and other prisoners of heinous crimes were either up for release or have already been released.
