Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra has ordered the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) to relieve and suspend its officials and personnel who may been negligent in their jobs that led to the riot at the New Bilibid Prison (NBP).

Guevarra gave the directive to BuCor Dir. Gen. Gerald Bantag in a memorandum issued following the Friday’s (Oct. 9) riot inside the Maximum Security Compound of the NBP that resulted in the deaths of nine persons deprived of liberty (PDLs) and the injury of seven others.

The secretary told Bantag “to cause the immediate relief and preventive suspension of the responsible BuCor officials and personnel who appear to be administratively liable for their negligence, pending investigation.”

Guevarra also ordered the BuCor chief “to conduct a thorough investigation of the incident, identify all PDLs who participated in the tumultuous affray, and cause the institution of the corresponding criminal complaints, if warranted.”

With this, Guevarra also instructed “to suspend all privileges of PDLs confined at the Maximum Security Compound until further notice.”

He told Bantag “take all the appropriate measures to prevent a repetition of similar violent incidents.”

Guevarra said this should include “an extensive search of the Maximum Security Compound and confiscate any and all weapons and other contraband items that may be found therein.”

Bantag has five days “to submit an initial report on the status of the action/s taken” as well as periodic reports until the full implementation of the memorandum.
