Watch the hearing live on Rappler

MANILA, Philippines – The Senate blue ribbon committee continues its joint probe into the supposed early release of rape and murder convict Antonio Sanchez, benefitting from the retroactive application of the Good Conduct Time Allowance (GCTA Law).

But Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) chief Nicanor Faeldon changed his tune and said that Sanchez may not be among the thousands of inmates to be released soon due to reported instances when illegal drugs and unauthorized equipment were found in his cell.

The Department of Justice also temporarily halted the implementation of the GCTA law because of the issue.

The joint committee is also looking on corruption allegations inside the BuCor, including the implementation of early release based on the GCTA law.
