Senate President Vicente Sotto III will file a resolution for the Senate to investigate the deaths of some high-profile inmates allegedly due to COVID-19.

Sotto said there are many “unanswered questions” that the Bureau of Corrections should answer after word leaked about the death of drug convict Jaybee Sebastian.

“Why no autopsies? Were relatives informed? Why was the DOJ not informed? Etc etc etc,” he told reporters in a Viber message.

BuCor chief Gerald Bantag has refused to confirm Sebastian was among the high-profile inmates who died due to COVID-19, citing the Data Privacy Act.

Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra, however, said he was told by BuCor officials that Sebastian died due to COVID-19 and his remains have been cremated.
