BuCor should be headed by a ‘killer,’ says Bong Go

Senator Bong Go said Wednesday he wanted a killer to lead the Bureau of Corrections (BuCoR).

“Gusto n’yong malaman kung sino ang gusto kong i-recommend sa loob ng BuCor? Killer,” Go told reporters.

He said an exasperated President Rodrigo Duterte is now looking for a former or retired military or police officer to head the BuCor.

“Exasperated na po ang Pangulo dito sa BuCor na ito. Naghahanap siya ng mamumuno ng BuCor, maaring naghahanap siya ng dating militar, dating pulis o retired,” he said.

Asked what he meant by a killer, Go refused to elaborate but said he already have a person in mind.

“Basta killer. Ang mamuno ng  BuCor dapat killer. Meron na akong person in mind. Former military o former pulis basta killer. Basta qualified siyang i-appoint. Basta killer,” the senator repeatedly replied to the persistent questions of reporters.

Duterte asked the resignation of former BuCor director general Nicanor Faeldon following controversy on the release of inmates who availed of the good conduct time allowance credits, including those convicted of heinous crimes, such as drug lords, killers and rapists like former Calauan mayor Antonio Sanchez. —LDF, GMA News
