ACT-CIS party-list Rep. Eric Go Yap on Thursday expressed alarm at the report that alleged pork barrel mastermind Janet Lim Napoles was included in the list of heinous crime convicts set for release by the Bureau of Corrections on the basis of the good conduct time allowance law.

“Nakakabahala ang napabalitang pagsasama kay Janet Napoles sa listahan ng posibleng makalaya dahil sa GCTA,” he said.

“Noong una kong nabasa ito, akala ko fake news,” Yap added.

“Lalo tayong nangangamba baka may nangyayari nga na GCTA for sale sa BuCor. Hindi sapat na tinanggal lang sa serbisyo ang mga opisyal nito, dapat na patuloy na gumulong ang pagdinig ukol sa GCTA mess na kinakaharap ng BuCor,” he said.

Yap said he plans to file a House bill defining good conduct and providing conditions in the grant of good conduct time allowance, amending Article 97 ng Revised Penal Code, which itself was amended by RA 10592.

“Gusto kong idiin na patuloy nating babantayan ito at hindi tayo tatalikod sa nasimulan nating pagtutol sa pag-abuso sa batas na ito na magpapalaya sa mga katulad ni Janet Napoles,” he said.
