(UPDATED) The author of the controversial good conduct time allowance (GCTA) law got an expletive-ridden rebuke from a Cabinet member for crafting a supposed flawed law.

“Sino ba ang putangina nagsulat ang hindot na batas ito while sickly old men and women stay in jail,” Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. tweeted.

Locsin was commenting on broadcast journalist Karen Davila’s tweet that only the rich and influential prisoners have benefited from Republic Act No. 10592. The law expanded good conduct time allowances, allowing for shorter prison sentence and early release of some inmates.

The implementing rules and regulations of RA 10592, crafted and issued jointly by former Justice Secretary Leila de Lima and former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas, however, supposedly included inmates convicted of heinous crimes as qualified to avail the benefits of the law.

“Ang malinaw sa Good Conduct Time Allowance or GCTA Law – mas nakikinabang ang may pera at mayayaman na inmates. Sayang – inabuso ang batas na sana’y nagbibigay ng pangalawang pagkakataon sa mga tunay na nagbago,” Davila said.

When Senate President Tito Sotto pointed out that the late Senator Miriam Santiago was the author of the GCTA law and that the probleem was in the IRR , Locsin took back his scathing comment about the author.

“O, I loved Miriam. So ang IRR. Sino ang nagisyu ng lecheng IRR,” he tweeted.
