In a statement, the IBP acknowledges that Republic Act 10592 or the law that increases the good conduct time allowance (GCTA) for inmates is a valid act of Congress and that the Supreme Court ruling saying it should be implemented retroactively followed Constitutional principles.

The IBP added that it would also be a welcome move to inform the offended parties and their families of the recomputed imprisonment period of those convicted.

Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said the BuCor will still determine if Sanchez is eligible before doing a recomputation of his GCTA. But if he is not, then “there is nothing to compute.” /muf
