In a statement issued last Sept. 25, BuCor said CTCInsp. Hylene C. Pancho took over the superintendent’s post from CTSSupt. Virginia S. Mangawit in a turnover ceremony last Sept. 21.

BuCor did not say if Mangawit has retired or has been appointed to another post in the bureau or in any of its seven prison facilities in the country.

BuCor said: “Although the leadership has changed, the organization's mission and devotion have not.  The new management will build on the accomplishments of the previous superintendent while also carrying out the mandate of safety and reformation.”

 During the turn over ceremony, BuCor said Mangawit “commended all CIW personnel for their cooperation and dedication in carrying out their duties during her leadership, which resulted in significant CIW accomplishments.”

“The CIW family, on the other hand, guaranteed that under the new management, they will keep supporting the existing administration's policies and initiatives and will maintain a solid responsibility to achieve what corrections service requires,” it added.
