Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Menardo Guevarra on Thursday (Dec. 26) brushed off calls for the firing of Bureau of Correction (BuCor) Director General Gerald Bantag who is accused of graft and corruption.

Recently, an anonymous group of BuCor officials and personnel sent a letter to President Rodrigo Duterte who was asked to sack Bantag.

The group said they got offended that Bantag made accusations that 95 percent of the BuCor is corrupt and even made threats of re-assignment to far flung posts.

“DG bantag’s statement that 95 percent of BuCor personnel are corrupt may have offended the sensibilities of those employees who are honestly performing their jobs in the bureau,” Guevarra said.

“But that statement by itself, in my opinion does not constitute an actionable offense, much less under the anti-graft law,” he pointed out.

On the other hand, the Secretary vowed that “The DOJ will continue to monitor very closely both the BuCor’s rank and file (for any corrupt practices) and the management (for any abuse of authority) and take such action as may be appropriate.”
