By Edu Punay, The Philippine Star, January 06, 2012
Justice Secretary Leila de Lima announced yesterday that she and Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo have decided to increase the reward money as a complementary move to the ongoing manhunt for Palparan.
“Because we are getting good leads, we decided to increase (the reward). We are increasing the reward money for any information that would lead to the arrest of retired Maj. Gen. Jovito Palparan,” she told reporters.
“We want this to be over and done with the soonest,” she stressed.
De Lima admitted that authorities were concerned with the fugitive retired general’s continued hiding.
“If this will continue, chances of arresting him become slimmer and he could even be able to flee,” she pointed out.
De Lima had earlier claimed that Palparan already sent surrender feelers to the National Bureau of Investigation.
She also claimed that she received death threats that could possibly have come from the fugitive retired general.
