Biazon shocked by BuCor’s construction of wall in Muntinlupa

Representative Ruffy Biazon was shocked by the construction of the of Justice in Muntinlupa by Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) personnel last Friday night.

Biazon explained that they had continuously coordinated with BuCor since March when they built a in Southville 3.

“Mula nung nangyari yung sa Southville, patuloy naman ho ang behind-the-scenes na usapan, at may mga commitments [na] ibinigay na, mula noon magkakaroon na sila ng koordinasyon sa local government para ho maayos ang pag-iimplement ng mga security measures kung kakailanganin.”

“Ngunit ito, binigla kaming lahat. Sa gitna ng gabi, mga 10:30 at night, bigla silang nagtayo ng pader doon, walang pasabi, walang konsultasyon, nothing whatsoever kaya naman masyadong matindi ‘yung ginagawa.”

According to Biazon, they have already submitted their grievance to Justice Secretary Meynardo Guevarra.

“Sa ngayon po dinulog kasi namin ‘yan sa mas nakakataas ano, sa Secretary of Justice po na siya namang nangako na kakausapin nila si Director-General (Gerald) Bantag,” he said.

“Kanya-kanyang interpretasyon kasi nung sa pakikipagdayalogo namin sa kanila—ginigiit nila na may kapangyarihan sila, at sinasabi rin naman namin na merong nilabag na mga proseso, kaya ‘yun po ay idinulog namin sa mas nakakataas.”

Biazon still hopes that the dispute between BuCor and the local government of will not reach the prosecution.

“Hanggang sa maaari hindi pa ho pinararating sa labanan sa Korte kasi nga kung puwede madaan muna sa pakikipag-usapan ng pare-parehong mga government officials,” he said.

“Hindi talaga maganda na ang mga government officials mismo naglalalaban-laban kasi pare-pareho kami, dapat na ang pinaglilingkuran, yung taumbayan. E dito po sa nangyari taumbayan ‘yung apektado.”

“So last recourse lang ho talaga kung merong legal action na gagawin,” he added.

BuCor insisted this Sunday that they did nothing wrong when they closed a road to Katarungan in Muntinlupa.

In a statement, the agency said one of their mandates was to make sure the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) was safe, so the road near the jail was closed. It is said that there are as many illegal activities as recorded inside the NBP camp.

BuCor asserted that residents of Kataranguan 1 and Katarungan 2 have many other avenues.
