At least seven inmate deaths were reported by the PPO in the last nine days, starting Christmas Day.
Reports showed that there were already scores of detainees with illnesses, who have died in hospitals from January 1 to December 31, 2018.

The PPO identified the latest fatalities as Joy Garpisa Castillo, 42, a resident of Barangay Dulong Bayan, Bacoor City, Cristituto Flores Leveriza, 49, of Justinville Subdivision, Barangay Panapaan VII, also in Bacoor, and Conrado Taligados Ibon, 41, a tricycle driver, of Barangay Mimije, General Maraino Alvarez (GMA), Cavite.

Castillo, Leveriza and Ibon were reportedly all detained for illegal drug charges. They all died in separate hospitals on Wednesday after they complained of breathing difficulty and chest pains while they were in their cells.

Castillo and Leveriza were inmates of the Bacoor custodial facility, while Ibon was being detained at the Imus jail.
As early as October 26, 2018, it was already reported that scores of inmates have already died after languishing in overcrowded and poorly-ventilated jails.

Inmates with skin disease were reported in detention centers in Cavite’s eight district, seven cities and 16 municipalities.

Just in the fourth quarter of last year or the period from September 1 to December 25, 2018, there were about 16 deaths reported in the province’s police jails.

The Dasmariñas City jail reportedly had the most number of inmate deaths in 2018, PPO reports showed.

The Police Regional Office IV-A under Chief Superintendent Edward E. Carranza is now looking into the inmate deaths not only in Cavite but also in Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon which are under its jurisdiction.

Regional Police Information Officer Superintendent Chitadel Gaoiran confirmed the number of inmate deaths in Cavite and other provinces in the turf with the reports rendered to this reporter.

The concerned local government units (LGUs) and the Cavite PPO said that they would act on the reported inmate deaths in their jurisdiction.

The Cavite PPO is set to release the official total number of the detainee’s deaths this month.
