There isn’t any want for detained Senator Leila de Lima to file a bill requiring correctional services to endure common drug testing.
“It is being done already in the Bureau of Correction (BuCor),” assured BuCor Director General Benjamin Delos Santos.
“We both conduct random drug tests to both persons deprived of liberty and our employees,” he mentioned.
De Lima filed the bill in response to the disclosure made by Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II in regards to the revival of narcotics buying and selling on the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) in Muntinlupa City.
The Senator herself is going through drug charges earlier than the Muntinlupa regional trial court docket after being accused of being concerned within the narcotics commerce on the NBP.
