That’s entertainment! Duterte wants TVs in jail cells by end-November
Inmates will soon be able to catch their favorite television shows inside the jail after President Rodrigo Duterte promised to have a television installed in each cell by the end of the month.
Duterte made the promise during his visit to the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) Wednesday (October 18).
“We would want to give them everything pero ang nasabi ko sa kanila, each and every selda would have a TV by the end of the month. Yun na lang ang maibigay ko muna,” he said.
By next year, Duterte promised to upgrade the security equipment in jails. He noted that the BJMP is also in need of more service vehicles.
“The economy is improving and we expect to collect more taxes, more to spend for governmental needs,” he said.
