Special treatment in the Philippine Penitentiary
This man is Ex- Gov. Antonio Leviste of Batangas who was sentenced and jailed at the National Penitentiary in Muntinlupa for murder but was caught by the National Bureau of Investigation three days ago. He was apprehended by the NBI from a tip that he is living a free life and not in his cell , living his sentenced.
So why he was able to do this , i supposed there are “special treatment in the
Philippine Penintentiary” , if there was none then he could not do this . He was able to went out of his cell and the compound of the National Bilibid Prison without a permit and even without a guard.
What does it mean when prisoners like Antonio Leviste can go out of his living cell? It means Justice in the national penitentiary where hard earned criminals are jailed are not equal. So if this guy an ex-governor and has money could play with justice , it is not hard to think that there are more affluent criminals who could also be given a special treatment in the Philippine Penitentiary. And corruption of government of public officials is the National Penitentiary is again matters.
Now with the present government of Pres. Noynoy Aquino his sense of respect for law and justice is again at stake because his appointee Ernesto Diokno head of the National Bilibid Prison had the command and responsibility for this case.
