PERSONNEL of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) prison in Jaro, Iloilo City are in hot water for the death of an inmate late last week.
Information from sources in the BJMP regional office, said the probe is focused on two officers of the BJMP Iloilo City district jail in Ungka, Jaro who discovered the alleged suicide death of Kristian Buivan.
Buivan, 33, of Mabolo-Delgado, City Proper, Iloilo City, was found hanging inside the lavatory of the jail Friday last week.
Jail personnel later turned a suicide note allegedly written by the inmate over to the Buivan’s family.
Buivan was detained for illegal drug charges after he was arrested in an alleged drug den in Iloilo City in March.

A FARMER hacked to death two women who graciously tried to bring him home after he got wasted in a binge drinking before midnight Sunday in Jamindan, Capiz.
Suspect Leodegario Labto Jr., 40, married, of Barangay Jagnaya, Jamindan, voluntarily surrendered after the incident.
Inspector Edwin Luces, Jamindan police chief, said Labto had drinks with Ricky Alcayde prior to the incident.
At around 11:30 p.m., Labto went home and was accompanied by Alcayde’s mother Leticia, 62, also of Barangay Jagnaya and Alcayde’s live-in partner, Josie Cainap, 24, of Barangay Pangabuan, Jamindan.
While treading the ricefield, Labto suddenly hacked Leticia on the head and neck. He then dragged Cainap to his house some 30 meters from the scene where Leticia fell.

THE Police Regional Office (PRO-6) on Monday shed light on reports that 81 cops in Western Visayas are facing dismissal orders from the National Police Commission (Napolcom).
Police Insp. Shella Mae Sangrines, PRO-6 public information officer, told The Daily Guardian that the 81 police officers are still under investigation by the Napolcom.
Sangrines said PRO-6 does not have jurisdiction over the cases as the complaints were lodged with the Napolcom regional office.
“We don’t have the exact information of these 81 cops since the complaints were directly sent to the office of Napolcom,” Sangrines said.
An online news item published Thursday last week said that least 81 police personnel in Western Visayas faced possible dismissal for various administrative cases this month.
