“In addition to the suspension of visitation privileges of PDLs (persons deprived of liberty) under the Bureau, visits from religious organizations, NGOs (non-government organizations), INGOs, Foreign Embassies/Consulates and other humanitarian, educational, business or political missions are also temporarily suspended inside the premises of all prison facilities,” read a statement from the BuCor.

“These measures are part of the on-going safety precautions being undertaken by the BuCor leadership to prevent the occurence of COVID-19 inside the BuCor facilities,” it stated.

On the other hand, the BuCor said doctors and lawyers may still be allowed to visit PDLs on a case to case basis but still “mist undergo stringent screening by BuCor medical staff before given access inside prisons.”

The BuCor has also decided to “limiting processes including face to face transactions, meetings, conferences or interviews.”
