President Rodrigo Duterte wants an honest and competent individual to become the next Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) chief.

Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said although the President has yet to appoint a replacement for sacked BuCor chief Nicanor Faeldon, his qualifications for the next chief were simple.

“You know, the President has only two qualifications – honesty and competence,” Panelo said in a Palace brieifng.

“The President has not made any announcement on that, so we’ll just have to wait for his appointing a person to replace Chief Faeldon,” he added.

BuCor Assistant Secretary and Deputy Director General Melvin Ramon Buenafe currenty serves as officer-in-charge.

Duterte dismissed Faeldon for disobeying his order to block the release of almost 2,000 heinous crimes convicts under the controversial Good Conduct Time Allowance (GCTA) law.

He said he has no plans of reappointing Faeldon, who has had stints at the Office of Civil Defense and Bureau of Customs, since he is already working for the private sector.

However, Duterte said he still trusts Faeldon because he believed in his “honesty” when he tipped off the seizure of PHP3.2 billion worth of Mighty Corp. cigarettes with fake tax stamps in Bulacan.
