P1-M bounty dangled for fugitive convicts

first_img“The P1-million prize is available to all those who can capture them dead or alive, but maybe dead would be a better option,” Duterte told the media at the Malacañang on Tuesday. President Rodrigo Dutertte’ deadline for convicts believed to have been erroneously released based on the Good Conduct Time Allowance ends today. Those who will fail to surrender before the deadline may face warrantless arrest. PHOTOVILLE INTERNATIONAL MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte is offering P1 million to anyone who can capture a heinous crime convict freed through the expanded Good Conduct Time Allowance (GCTA) law as his 15-day ultimatum lapses today. The GCTA law came under fire following reports that it could benefit Antonio Sanchez, a former mayor of Calauan, Laguna convicted in 1990’s rape-murder case that was among the most followed in the country. The President had earlier toyed with the idea of offering a bounty for the capture of one of the 1,914 heinous crime convicts freed since 2014 through the controversial expanded GCTA policy, which more than doubled the time allowances granted to prisoners for good conduct. According to BuCor, at least 22,049 persons deprived of liberty were released from 2014 to 2019 through GCTA, with 1,914 of them had been convicted of heinous crimes such as murder and rape. President Duterte has earlier ordered the 1,914 released heinous crime inmates to surrender or be labeled as fugitives before September 19. So far, more than 600 freed convicts have turned themselves in to the authorities./PNlast_img read more
