Almost 160,000 people like Guillermo Busano have been arrested in the Philippines since President Rodrigo Duterte unleashed the 'war on drugs' in 2016. Jails across the country are in crisis. Some are 600 percent over capacity, with the vast majority of prisoners jailed for years without conviction as over-burdened courts struggle to process their cases on time. 101 East investigates the shocking conditions inside the most congested prisons in the world, and the inmates trying to survive them.
