They want to confront Palparan about a statement he made through his lawyer on Friday saying that he would not surrender because the missing students were still alive.
The two students have been missing since 2006.
Lawyer Edre Olalia, counsel of the Cadapan and Empeño families, said Palparan should “stop putting [his own] lawyers on the spot… [by making them] trifle with the emotions of suffering mothers [when they issue] recklessly bare claims that their young and abused daughters are still alive.”
Palparan’s lawyer, Jesus Santos, wrote the National Bureau of Investigation on Feb. 1 to say that the missing students were alive.
Palparan’s statement also said that the fugitive retired major general would “try [his] best not to surrender since the filing of the cases against [him] was done illegally.”
