INJURED high-profile inmate Jaybee Sebastian yesterday asked to be transferred from Building 14 back to the Maximum Security Compound of the New Bilibid Prison (NBP).

This baffled prison officials given that Sebastian and other high-profile inmates have led “luxurious” lifestyles in Building 14.
Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) Officer-in-Charge Rolando Asuncion said that he has already received Sebastian’s request.
“Maximum Prison is for four thousand inmates but it now houses 16 thousand,”  Asuncion said.
“We are studying if the transfer will be good for him,” he added.
Meanwhile, Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II yesterday said the four inmates involved in last week’s stabbing incident at the maximum security compound of the NBP in Muntinlupa City that killed another high-profile inmate and injured four others may remain in Camp Crame until today.
