MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Philippines’ Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II is “seriously considering” the transfer of two high-profile drug lords at the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) to a prison island. But  Senator Leila de Lima, former President NoyNoy Aquino and former Interior Secretary and presidential candidate Mar Roxas are all opposed to the move.

Aguirre, of course, is referring to convicted drug lords Peter Co and Herbert Colangco who were among the top tier drug lords named by President Rodrigo Duterte.

Colangco, in particular, is known to have his own music recording studio in his prison cell at NBP.

De Lima, Aquino and Roxas told The Adobo Chronicles that transferring the  NBP inmates — especially Colangco  — would deprive them of a convenient rehearsal and hangout venue for their  passion for karaoke singing.

Unconfirmed reports say that the three former officials have used Colango’s NLB recording studio many times in the past for private karaoke sessions.  They are appealing to Aguirre to reconsider his decision.
