The Manila City Jail (MCJ) resumes normal operations after the recent fight between two groups of inmates last Saturday, April 13.

According to Boy Gonzales' report, 8 persons deprived of liberty (PDL) sustained injuries after a riot arose between the groups "Bahala na Gang" and "Commando" at 1:00 PM on Saturday.

Interviewed during Damdaming Bayan on Monday, MCJ Spokesperson JO2 Elmar Jacobe said the jail once again accepts visitors based on the scheduled visiting days.

"Sa ngayon maayos na ang kalagayan nila, nakausap na rin natin yung dorm leader ng bawat pangkat po ng BNG at Commando at nagkaayos na sila," Jacobe noted.

"Sa katunayan, may dalaw na tayo kahapon at nakausap na rin po ng mga PDL natin yung mga mahal nila sa buhay."

According to Jacobe, the chaos arose from a basketball game when inmates became too aggressive while playing, hurting each other.

"Karamihan dito nagkabatuhan. Mga hallowblocks natin ay nabasag nila, ginamit nila pambato. Karamihan doon ay sugatan, and yung anim na dinala sa hospital nakabalik na sa city jail at maayos na ang kondisyon nila," Jacobe said.

The MCJ is currently studying whether they are going to continue the ongoing Sport's Fest, which is part of the MCJ's yearly activity.
