President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday fired Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) chief Nicanor Faeldon amid the controversy on the release of heinous crimes convicts on the basis of the good conduct time allowance law.

On Wednesday, President Rodrigo Duterte fired Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) chief Nicanor Faeldon amid the controversial issue on the release of heinous crimes convicts on the basis of the good conduct time allowance (GCTA) law.

I decided last night… I am demanding the resignation of Faeldon immediately,” the President said.

Faeldon has to go because Faeldon disobeyed my order,” he added.

Asked if he was firing Faeldon, the President said: “Yes.”

He said he had ordered Faeldon and Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra not to release inmates “until further orders by higher authority.”

Duterte also said he would order the Office of the Ombudsman to look into possible corruption in the release of the heinous crime convicts.
