Justice Secretary Leila de Lila on Monday said she has found a replacement for Bureau of Corrections director Franklin Jesus Bucayu who has submitted his resignation letter.
De Lima said she, Bucayu and her nominee for Bucor chief will meet first before she endorses Bucayo’s resignation letter to President Benigno Aquino 3rd. She refused to name the nominee.
“I am about to endorse already but mag-uusap pa kami tomorrow so I am just formalizing or drafting a formal endorsement (letter) to the president,” she said.
The Bucor has supervision over the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) in Muntinlupa City, the Correctional Institute for Women in Mandaluyong City, Davao Prison and Penal Farm, Iwahig Prison and Penal Farm, Sablayan Prison and Penal Farm, Leyte Regional Prison and the San Ramon Prison and Penal Farm.
