"Palawan Liberation Task Force, in cooperation with Air Asia, invited several press members to tour inside the Iwahig Prison & Penal Farm (IPPF). As part of their plan to introduce Puerto Princesa's rich heritage to the world, the group is planning to promote the 'prison without bars' in tourist itineraries.

In 1945, it became the command center for the US Army's operations. In 1972, by the virtue of Presidential Decree 28, it was converted to a regional prison and named IPPF. Moreover, documentaries also noted that prisoners of war during World War II swam across the Iwahig River to escape the horrifying carnage carried out by the Japanese soldiers. The event, known as the 'Palawan Massacre' where 139 POWs were burned alive is considered to be one of the most gruesome events in history."
