MANILA, Philippines — Malacañang will not allow the release of convicted rapist-murderer Antonio Sanchez, as the justice department has already deemed the former mayor not qualified for a shortened prison term under the Good Conduct Time Allowance (GCTA) due to the gravity of his offense, presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo said yesterday.

Panelo, Sanchez’s former lawyer, made this clear as outrage persisted over an earlier announcement by Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra that the former mayor and thousands of other convicts might be released under the GCTA law.
