- Mark Anthony Fernandez, son of the late Rudy Fernandez, has been getting his taste of hell in one of the cramped cells of Angeles District Jail in Pampanga
- The actor has been detained after the police found about a kilogram of dried marijuana in his possession
-As promised by the authorities, no special treatment has been given to the actor, though his lawyers have already requested for him to be moved to the bigger Pampanga Provincial Jail
As promised by Angeles police, Mark Anthony Fernandez is not receiving any special treatment after he was transferred to the cramped Angeles District Jail on Saturday, October 8.
A week following the his arrest, Mark Anthony Fernandez was transferred from Angeles City Police Station 6 to Angeles District Jail.
His camp, however, had already filed motions requesting for him to be transferred to the bigger Pampanga Provincial Jail in San Fernando City.
According to reports, Fernandez’s new cell at the District Jail, cell number 8, is shared with 120 other inmates, though it was originally made to accommodate 20 people.
Senior Inspector Xavier Solda of Angeles District Jail said that they treat the inmates fairly.
"Mayaman, mahirap, pare-pareho treatment namin. Kung ano tinutulugan, doon siya matutulog. Kung ano ang kinakain, ganun din kakainin ni Mr. Fernandez,” Solda added.
(Rich or poor, we treat them equally. Whatever is available for the others to sleep on, that's where he will sleep. Whatever the others are eating, that's what Mr. Fernandez will eat.)
Fernandez had been arrested for violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act and simple disobedience after he sped off from an anti-criminality checkpoint. He was later found with about a kilo of marijuana in his possession, which he allegedly use for medical purposes.
