Senator Christopher “Bong” Go said that President Rodrigo Duterte would make his own investigation over the mess happened over the implementation of the Good Conduct Time Allowance (GCTA) Law.
In an interview, Go said that he talked to President Duterte over the issue on GCTA law which almost freed convicted lawbreaker former Calauan Mayor Antonio Sanchez who’s serving 350 years of detention.
“Sabi ni Pangulong Duterte, paiimbestigahan niya ito. Definitely heads will roll. Ang Pangulo ay mag-iimbestiga ng kanyang sarili kung meron ba talagang korapsyon,” Go told reporters.
Go said that Bureau of Corrections (BOC) chief Nicanor Faeldon should face responsibilities over the order to release Sanchez, which the latter denied during the recent senate hearing.
According to Go, not only Faeldon should be held responsible for signing the release order, but also the other officials of BuCor who processed the documents.
“May pananagutan po, not only Faeldon but kung sino ang dinaanan ng papel…Lahat ng pumirma ay dapat managot. Bakit nila pinayagang i-release ang mga convicted?” Go said.
The former assistant of the President also said that Duterte is the only one who could answer if he still trusts Faeldon who also became controversial during his term as the Bureau of Customs (BOC) chief.
“Si Presidente lang makakasagot pero sa takbo ngayon papanagutin ng Pangulo,” he said.
Several weeks ago, President Duterte ordered to block the release of Sanchez after a public outcry.
The controversial GCTA law was signed in 2013 during the Aquino administration which allowed the reduction of sentences depends on the convict’s good behavior.
