In a report by the ABS-CBN News, Faeldon said that bribing the families of the prisoners is worse than any heinous crimes.
“Kung totoo ang revelation kanina doon, ang tingin ko doon masahol pa ’yan sa heinous crimes, you know why? Kahit maliit na pera o malaki, ’yung hinihingan nila ng pera, mga preso, they are the lowest member of our society, tapos aapihin mo pa ng ganyan. Dapat d’yan bitayin nang paulit ulit, ang ganyang mga tao,” Faeldon said.
“I’m still crying inside my heart kasi ang preso di mo dapat ginanyan, pagkaperahan mo. Trabaho mo ’yan na protektahan sila. Trabaho mo na ayusin ’yung gobyerno,” he added.
In a previous report by KAMI, a certain Yolanda Camelon, an inmate’s wife, claimed that she was offered an early release of her husband in exchange for cash.
The good conduct time allowance, under the Republic Act No. 10592, allows a deduction from the initial sentence of the prisoner if he is qualified for exhibiting good behavior.
