On Taguig Seige

Senator Richard Gordon questioned the implementation of rules in penitentiaries by the jail authorities as he called for an immediate investigation of the prison assault in Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig yesterday which ended in a bloody siege that left more than 20 people dead today.

Gordon said prison policies have provisions on the control of firearms, prohibition of prisoners to be used for janitorial services, and transfer of jail inmates without conducting search for any dangerous weapons but all of these seem to be violated everyday.

“There are already existing rules on carrying of firearms within prison facilities. But are these rules clear to the law enforcers. How come the inmates were able to grab weapons from the jail guards?” asked Gordon.

Gordon disclosed that the operations manual of the jail guards does not even specifically indicate the areas where carrying of firearms will be allowed.

“We cannot afford a continued inefficient management within our penitentiaries. We should thoroughly investigate on the implementation of prison rules lest more families will be orphaned and place the country in a bad face as a country with inefficient law enforcers,” said Gordon.
