Senate hearing bilibid Bucor faeldon

Despite of having flu, Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) Dir. Gen. Nicanor Faeldon showed up at the Senate hearing on Monday due to the controversial Good Conduct Time Allowance (GCTA) and the release of convicted inmates.

The BuCor chief said he never thought of not attending the said hearing even though he already had prior commitments today.

Faeldon was arrested and detained in January 2018 for snubbing Senate hearing investigations in connection with illegal smuggling of drugs on Bureau of Customs (BoC).

Faeldon headed the agency at the time.

Parents of Eileen Sarmenta and Allan Gomez were also present on the hearing.
