Agad umanong ipag-uutos ng Department of Justice (DoJ) sa kanilang oversight committee ang direktiba ng Office of the Ombudsman na suspendehin ang 27 opisyal ng Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) dahil sa maanomalyang pagpapatupad ng good conduct time allowance (GCTA) law.

Ayon kay Justice Sec. Menardo Guevarra, aatasan na niya ang OIC ng BuCor para isilbi ang notices of preventive suspension at ipatupad ito immediately.

Una rito, sinabi ni Ombudsman Samuel Martires, na ang mga opisyal ay guilty sa grave misconduct, gross neglect of duty at conduct prejudicial to the best interest of service dahil sa kuwestiyonableng pagpapalaya sa mga heinous crime convicts mula pa noong 2014.

Karamihan sa mga sinuspindi ay nakatalaga sa Maximum Security compound ng New Bilibid Prison (NBP).

Dagdag pa ni Martires, malakas ang ebidensiyang hawak nila sa pamamagitan ng testimonya ng mga witnesses at mga public documents ng pagpapakita ng maanomalyang pagpapalaya sa mga convicted criminals.

Ang mga suspendido ng anim na buwan ng walang sahod ay pinangunahan ni Ramoncito Roque ang BuCor Docoments and Record Section chief at Corrections Senior Insp. Ma. Belinda Bansil.
