Gordon issues subpoena to Faeldon demanding his attendance on Senate hearing

Senator Richard Gordon has issued subpoenas ordering Bureau of Corrections Chief Nicanor Faeldon and Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra to attend a Senate hearing on the Good Conduct Times Allowance Law (GCTA) scheduled for tomorrow.

“Pina-subpoena ko na. Nu’ng una nga invitation lang. Ang sagot nila, hindi a-attend. Meron daw training sa Canadian embassy,” Gordon told ABS-CBN News.

Faeldon wrote to Gordon’s committee and explained why he doesn’t plan to attend the hearing.

It was BuCor Legal Chief Frederick Santos who was assigned to attend the hearing.

“Nagmi-meeting kami kanina kasi nga nagpe-prepare kami para sa blue ribbon hearing sa Monday. Tapos pinakita sa akin ‘yung letter niya, nagalit ako kanina. Sabi ko ‘I want him subpoenaed,” Gordon said.

“This is of the highest importance. This is striking a justice. He has to be there because he released a convict whose application for clemency was rejected last February 2017, that’s Sanchez,” Gordon explained.

In a tweet on CNN Philippines, Faeldon allegedly changed his mind and will now attend the Senate hearing on GCTA.

Senator Win Gatchalian on the other hand expressed outrage over Faeldon’s alleged signature on the release order of rape-slay convict Antonio Sanchez.

“I don’t know what to say sa galit ko! Pinalabas ni Faeldon ang P6.4 million worth of illegal drugs sa BOC, ngayon naman, pinalabas niya isang rapist sa BuCOR. Bakit na sa gobyerno pa itong tao na ito?” Gatchalian said.
