Magsama kayo: DOJ to mix Maute terrorists with drug lords, killers, rapists in National Bilibid
Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II intends to make room in the already congested New Bilibid Prison (NBP) in Muntinlupa City for the dozens of members of the Maute terrorist group who have been arrested.
Aguirre said that Supreme Court (SC) Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno has stated that she preferred that the Maute members be detained at the NBP.
“Pinapacheck nga sa kin facilities ng BuCor (Bureau of Corrections) in the event magkaron ng conviction,” Aguirre revealed.
“Alam ko medyo sikip na sila doon kaya I am looking to establish Building 15 na pwede paglagyan,” he said.
Building 14 already houses high-profile inmates including those who had testified against detained Senator Leila De Lima over her involvement in the narcotics trade.
