At the Senate hearing on the release of heinous crime convicts via GCTA, Sen. Lacson stressed the need for closer coordination between the Board of Pardons and Parole and the Bureau of Corrections . He also welcomed the disclosure of DOJ Sec. Menardo Guevarra that an initial batch of heinous crime convicts who were released via GCTA had surrendered, after President Duterte gave them 15 days to turn themselves in.

Lacson also questioned the rush that prompted BuCor official Maria Fe Marquez to sign release papers for three convicts in the Chiong sisters’ 1997 rape-slay, for now-fired BuCor chief Nicanor Faeldon; as well as the blatant disregard of the procedure requiring the prior approval of the DOJ Secretary for convicts’ release.

At the resumption of the hearing, a resource person surfaced to give details of a supposed GCTA-for-sale racket supposedly involving BuCor personnel.

On the President’s Firing of Faeldon and Ultimatum to Convicts Released via GCTA

Firing Faeldon and giving 15 days for the 1,900 released convicts to surrender are reasons enough for me to continue supporting President Duterte’s advocacies and programs against criminality.

We are like-minded in our position to give preference to the rights of victims and society at large over the rights of criminal offenders.

At the Hearing on the Release of Heinous Crime Convicts via GCTA

At the Senate hearing on the release of heinous crime convicts via GCTA, Sen. Lacson showed documents indicating BuCor director general Nicanor Faeldon signed the release order for former Calauan (Laguna) Mayor Antonio Sanchez, who was convicted for the rape-killing of Eileen Sarmenta and killing of Allan Gomez in 1993 .

Lacson also said the signing of release orders for convicts in the rape-killing of the Chiong sisters in Cebu in 1997 by Maria Fe Marquez for Faeldon was a violation of the law.

He questioned as well the release of convicted Taiwanese drug lord Chen Chang from the Davao Penal Colony last April 3.

On the Release of Convicted Drug Lords via GCTA

It is the biggest irony that while the government has spent so much time, energy and resources to build up intelligence, gather evidence leading to the arrest of big-time drug traffickers especially Chinese drug lords, then spend more to prosecute and convict those arrested and charged, here is Faeldon and whoever else was responsible, by the stroke of their pens, would release at least 48 drug convicts out of the 1,914 heinous crime convicts under questionable circumstances.

If the President does not take drastic action on this latest caper of an official who was recycled in spite of questionable actions committed in his previous assignment like the P6.4-billion shabu smuggling that got away under mysterious circumstances, on top of the organized “tara” on smuggled goods, we should start thinking if there is seriousness in this administration’s much-touted war against drugs and corruption midway into his six-year term.
