Muntinlupa LGU declares BuCor chief Bantag persona non grata
© Mai Bermudez A portion of University Road in Muntinlupa City is closed on Saturday, Nov. 27, 2021, after the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) constructed a low wall. The BuCor says it was necessary to address the “illegal activities” inside the New Bilibid Prison Camp, thus it constructed the wall. Residents of Katarungan Village, however, say the construction of the wall blocked their access to the city proper. MAI BERMUDEZ

The Muntinlupa City Council on Saturday declared Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) Director General Gerald Bantag persona non grata in the city for building walls around the New Bilibid Prisons (NBP) that block off roads.

In Katrina Son’s 24 Oras News Alert report, the Muntinlupa City Council wanted to file applicable cases against BuCor for the closure of several roads and eviction of informal settlers in the NBP Reservation.

In a Facebook post, the Muntinlupa government said it held an emergency special session on Saturday and passed six resolutions on the  “sudden and illegal” road closures, as well as the “illegal eviction and demolition” of informal settlers in violation of the constitution, the Urban Development and Housing Act (UDHA), and the City ordinance.

They “strongly condemned” the actions of the BuCor and its officials who were responsible for the road closure leading to Katarungan Village 1 and 2, Muntinlupa National High School, Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Muntinlupa, Southville 3 housing project, and Type B NBP Reservation.

According to the report, BuCor earlier said that the walls were built for the security of NBP.

The GMA News is still trying to get a statement from Bantag regarding the development. — DVM, GMA News
