Most New Bilibid Prison (NBP) inmates prefer staying in the “Site Harry” quarantine facility of the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor), Bucor Spokesperson Gabriel Chaclag said on Saturday (Nov. 7).
“In fact, marami PDLs na mas gusto nila doon na tumira sa site Harry kahit gumaling na sila…dahil maaliwalas doon at safe sila pero yun lang, wala talagang celfone,” he said.
Chaclag made the assurance amid alleged complaints of inmates being taken to the facility.
Site Harry has been set up inside the NBP in Muntinlupa City to house PDLs who have been tested positive with the COVID-10 virus.
“Yung mga nag-iingay at nagrereklamo na mga PDLs at mga kamag anak nila ay yung mga alam nila sa sarili nila na marami silang kasalanan sa tao at sa Panginoon,” Chaclag said.
“Sila at mga kunsintidor nilang relatives ay sobrang natatakot sa karma at puro na sila hinala na sila ay paghihigantian,” he added.
Chaclag has already confirmed that 53 high-profile inmates from the high-security Building 14 have been taken to Site Harry after being tested positive for COVID-19.
He said the 53 inmates already underwent another round of testing and are now awaiting for results.
