“Dito po ay malawak, malaki at kaniya-kaniya po silang buildings. And ‘yung lahat ng kailangan nila—vitamins, food supplement—binibigay natin sa kanila,” Bureau of Corrections spokesman Gabriel Chaclag said.
“Ito po ay walled facility, 12 meters high po ang perimeter wall and we have five buildings inside. Hindi rin basta-basta makapag-access ka do’n sa ibang building from another building kasi may mga barriers siya at naka-lock po ‘yun,” he added.
Chaclag also said they have distributed alcohol, soap, and disinfectants to inmates.
