Caballo Island mulled as PH’s Alcatraz
The drug lords housed at the New Bilibid Prisons (NBP) may not have to travel far for their planned “island relocation”.
Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II has disclosed that Caballo Island near Corregidor is currently being studied as a possible island prison for hard core inmates similar to that of Alcatraz island in the United States.
Apart from Caballo Island, Aguirre bared that the other sites being eyed as island prisons are areas in Palawan.
Aguirre earlier revealed that 75 percent of the illegal drugs transactions in the country were done inside the NBP.
To counter this, Aguirre intends to install more signal jammers at the penal facility to put a stop to these transactions.
