Lacson Bill to Punish Prison Guards Who Allow Contraband for Inmates

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson has filed a bill seeking to finally stop the disturbing scenario of inmates at the New Bilibid Prison continuing to enjoy perks ranging from cash to drugs to gadgets and even fighting cocks and exotic pets.

Lacson lamented the continued enjoyment by inmates of such perks has given Philippine corrections authorities’ image a black eye. His Senate Bill 46 proposes penalties for prison guards and officials who allow such items into the penitentiary.

β€œA stiff penalty is required in this circumstance in order to instill fear and be an effective deterrence to those contemplating of doing this crime in the future.Β  More importantly, the said penalty applies as well to government officials or employees who cooperate or co-opt with the inmate or other private persons involved therein,” he said.

Ping: Prison Officials, Guards na Magpapapasok ng Kontrabando sa Piitan, May Kalalagyan

Kung walang guwardiya na makikipagsabwatan, walang kontrabando na makakapasok sa loob ng New Bilibid Prisons (NBP) at iba pang mga kulungan.

Ito ang pangunahing layunin ni Senador Panfilo Lacson sa pagsasampa ng Senate Bill 46 na pinamagatang Anti-Contraband in Prison Act bunga na rin ng sunod-sunod na pagkakalantad at pagkakalansag ng iba’t ibang bagay at kagamitan na naipapasok sa mga piitan.

Sa ilalim ng panukala ni Lacson, mabigat na kaparusahan ang naghihintay sa mga prison guards at mga opisyal ng mga piitan na mapapatunayang nakikipagsabwatan sa mga kriminal na nasa kanilang mga kulungan para maipasok ang iba’t ibang uri ng kontrabando.
