Philippine Senator Richard Gordon eyes the extensive review of Bureau of Corrections officials, including past bureau chiefs.

That's after a witness, Yolanda Camelon, confirmed the existence of the so-called 'GCTA-for-sale' scheme at the national penitentiary, or the grant of early release under the good conduct time allowance (GCTA) law for a fee.

Gordon believes corruption runs deep in the institution, questioning what he notes is the 'preferential treatment' given to certain inmates, especially drug lords and heinous crimes convicts, under GCTA.
