The bribery never stops at the New Bilibid Prisons as recently, Maj. Gen Alaxander Balutan reported that big time drug lords are promising to pay as much as P1 million to sneak a cellphone inside their cell.
Incoming Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) chief Balutan said that phones are a necessity for these drug lords to be able to continue running their drug operations.
Quoting from Balutan's statement, he said "Walang kuwenta ito kung ikukumpara mo sa mga tini-trade nilang drugs. O-order sila sa China ng mga two hundred kilos, that's worth more or less P200 million. What is one million?"
According to him, there is at least 1,000 personnel whom they identified as part of corruption inside the bilibid among the 3,000 members for its seven facilities. Surprisingly, the list included some were superintendents, the highest rank official in the facility.
"Sibakin natin. Dapat sibakin kahit sino pa siya," Balutan said. "I have the backing of the President. Sinong matakot?" said Balutan.
Cellphones and even signal boosters were earlier nabbed from the Bilibid together with some high-end 'kubols' during the oplan-galugad of PNP-Special Action Force.
PNP-SAF are now assigned to assume the posts of the NBP guards to discourage and cut these corruption inside the Bilibid.
"They have to be isolated, ma-cut communication nila from their contact, their network," Balutan said.
