In 2012, the annual cost of maintaining each prisoner in the country (as per the 2012 General Appropriations Act), is P19,345. This cost per inmate includes food and medicine allowance, and is much higher than the maximum assistance provided to a poor family at P15,000 per year under the conditional cash transfer (CCT) program of the government. The cost in one semester (P9,672.50) slightly exceeds the 2012 first semester per capita poverty threshold pegged at P9,385 thus making prisoners even non-poor by definition.
