Bayan Muna chairman Neri Colmenares and Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Isagani Zarate on Thursday asked why alleged pork barrel mastermind Janet Lim Napoles was covered by the good conduct time allowance (GCTA) program during Sen. Bato dela Rosa’s stint as Bureau of Corrections director general.
“Another question is why was her supposed crime rape and she was supposedly released on good behavior last November 2018? Who signed her release papers? Did money change hands and why was she not released?” asked Colmenares.
It was reported on Thursday that Napoles was one of the convicts supposedly released by the Bucor for good behavior under the GCTA law. Curiously, her crime was listed as “rape” instead of plunder.
Zarate said that “it seems that there is really a mafia inside Bucor and every stone must be turned to make these people accountable,”
“Mukhang ginawang kumikitang kabuhayan ng mga opisyal ng Bucor ang ‘GCTA scam’ at kailangang magkaroon ng lifestyle checl ang mga opisyales ng Bucor mula 2014,” said Zarate.
