MANILA — Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Leila M. De Lima on Friday said that “conjugal privileges” of inmates at the New Bilibid Prisons (NBP) will be allowed on Valentine’s Day.

De Lima added that the “stay-in privilege” will also be allowed, but strict security will also be implemented.

De Lima explained that this means that the wives of the inmates will be allowed to be with their respective partners in life during the special day of the hearts.

The “visitation privilege” of inmates at the NBP was recently restored after it was suspended by the DOJ and Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) following the grenade-throwing incident inside the NBP’s Maximum Security Compound (MSC) in Muntinlupa City last January 8.
