The investigation was initiated by the DOJ amid reports of VIP treatment given to high-profile inmates inside Bilibid.

It was earlier reported that convicted drug lord Ricardo “Chacha” Camata, commander of the notorious Sigue Sigue Sputnik Gang, brought in a “starlet and TV dancers” inside his hospital room at Metropolitan Hospital in Manila where he was rushed last weekend due to a lung ailment.
