MANILA, Philippines – The controversy involving the Good Conduct Time Allowance (GCTA) law has moved its focus from convicted murderer-rapist Antonio Sanchez to the shortcomings of the law itself and corruption inside the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor).

On Thursday, September 26, the Newsbreak team sits down to discuss the way the government is handling the issue, whether they are on the right track, and what else they need to do to full-proof the implementation of the GCTA law.
