7,000 canned beers attempted to be smuggled into Bilibid prison
More than 7,000 canned beers have been confiscated by authorities at the high-security compound of New Bilibid Prison.
More than 7,500 cans of beer and other illegal items were smuggled into NBP’s High Security Compound (BJMP) as a result of dishonest employees from the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) and the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology. Gregorio Catapang, BuCor’s commanding officer, revealed this information during a press conference.
“Alam mo ba yang isang beer na yan, baka malasing ka pag nalaman mo ang presyo. ₱ 1,000 Ang Bentahan Diyan. Mahihilo ka talaga kasi napakamahal,” he said.
According to the BuCor boss, the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology and some BuCor employees who are temporarily employed at the state prison are responsible for the beer smuggling. He claims that there are informants who exposed the smuggling.
“Papaano naipasok yan? Do you like kumanta na kung sino nagpapasok. But we can’t give you the names of the Kasi examined, pa,” Catapang said.
According to the report, along with the beer, authorities confiscated suspected shabu bags, firearms, phones, laptops, cash, sharps and other illegal items. Catapang promised that BuCor officials who allow smuggling inside the prison would be subject to the one-strike policy.
“Wag mo ng hintayin na ako ang papasok diyan. Pag naabutan ko na may drugs diyan, may baril diyan, what, ikaw ang mananagot sakin,” he warned.
