REWARD MONEY. Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence Major General Francisco Cruz awards P7.4-million reward to an informant who helped track down Abu Sayyaf Group leader Ghumbahali Jumdail alias Dr. Abu at the Multipurpose Hall of Intelligence Service at Camp Aguinaldo on Wednesday.

MANILA, Philippines—The military awarded about  P22-million worth of reward money to informants at the Intelligence Service at Camp Aguinaldo Wednesday following the neutralization of key Abu Sayyaf personalities and communist terrorist leaders.

The tipsters helped the Armed Forces of the Philippines in tracking down one Abu Sayyaf Group leader, one ASG sub-leader, seven ASG members and three communist terrorist leaders.

The neutralized personalities include ASG leader Ghumbahali Jumdail alias Dr Abu, who was killed in an airstrike in Sulu early this year. He was involved in Dos Palmas kidnapping in 2001, and has reported links with the Jemaah Islamiyah.

He carried a P7.4-million bounty.

The other ASG members with rewards were ASG sub-leader Suhud Tanadjalin (killed), with P3.3-million; ASG key member Usman Said alias Kaiser Said (killed), with P1.2-million; and ASG members Imbo Bayani alias Sahibul Jamaani (killed), Harun Jaljalis (killed), Assan/Bin Laden alias Abu Usama (captured), Burrong Rasul Barro alias Abu Mohammad (captured), Rommel Abbas alias Abu Nick (captured), and Samsudin Musa alias Musa (captured) with P350,000 each.

Three members of the New People’s Army were also on the list and they were led by Allan V. Jazmines alias Tomas/Arthur with P5.6-million reward on his head. He was captured in February last year with 13 standing warrants of arrest for 14 cases of murder. The other two, Robertson Anchez alias Stanley/Felimon (killed) and Edgardo Sevilla alias Palong/Diego (captured), have P1.2-million each on their head for multiple cases of murder, robbery in band, and multiple frustrated murder.

The ceremony was presided by Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence Maj. Gen. Francisco N. Cruz Jr. and was accompanied by the Commanding General of the AFP Civil Relations Service, Maj. Gen. Rolando B. Tenefrancia.

The reward system for wanted ASG leaders and members was activated on June 12, 2001, while the reward system for wanted insurgents was activated on June 30, 2006. Cohorts and other terrorist personalities were then included in the reward system in October 2007.

The reward system is an encouragement to community members to participate in counter-insurgency and counter-terrorism activities by providing relevant information on wanted personalities.

    mayaman na naman ang mga general sa 60% cut nila sa reward money :)

  • $37644997

    Is there such thing as senatorial/congressional reward?

  • julymorning

    SINONG NILOKO NG MGA OPISYAL NG AFP? MGA TAUHAN DIN NILA BINIBIGYAN NG PABUYA, PERO ANG KONDISYON AY 1 PORSYENTO LANG AT 99 PORSYENTO SA MGA OPISYAL DIN. PATAKIP TAKIP PA NG MUKHA KUNYARI. ANG MANIWALA DITO SA MGA KURAKOT NA AFP AY KATULAD NG NAKAUPO SA MALAKANYAN, ABNOY!!!

    • nti_boohaya

      Bok bakit alam na alam mo?  Kaya nakakaawa ang mga “trainees on a test mission” na a ambush na sundalo dahil sa reward money na yan. Kanyakanyang operasyon na walang coordinasyos sa mga ibat ibang units.  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist or a military buff to figure that modus out. O di kaya si sir local official ang bounty hunter at mga bata rin niya ang hinahanting at nanghahanting?

      • julymorning

        may mga pinsan akong sundalo at mga klasmet na sundalo. sa kasamaang palad, mga hamak na private lang sila kahit pinapain sa gyera sa mindanaw. kawawa ang mga mere foot soldiers na halos di mabigyan ng alowans at kakarampot lang ang sahod, pero ang mga opisyal ay ang sasarap ng buhay, at nag reretirong mga milyonaryo.
        magtitiwala pa ako sa mga private na sundalo kaysa mga opisyal. WAG NA ISAMA MGA PULIS, MAS MASAHOL PA ANG MGA WALANG SILBI AT MGA INUTIL NA YAN!!!

    Mga gunggong kayo hindi bobo ang mga taong bayan para ipakita ninyo ang reward,  ang tao hindi isasakripisyo ang buhay  at pamilya nila sa isang salapi lamang, at kung iyan ay totoo man palagay ko hindi na sisikatan ng araw yung tao na iyan dahil babalikan din iyan ng mga bandido.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VDMUJ6NKKCLWRMVMJRLJFI633I Rene V

       ikaw naman nasaktan ka na. ikaw ba kaya ay isa sa mga bandido? it hurts when you’re losing. rewards are always tantalizing. you might know better and we might know less. the mainstream is always the indication of a nation’s direction. give up, rebel.

      • http://www.facebook.com/simoun.magaalahas.10 Simoun Magaalahas

        Wala ka kasing alam dahil hindi ka nakaka tagpo ng mga ganyang senaryo sa bansa natin, bakit hindi mo subukan manirahan sa bandang Bicol or mindanao para makita mo kung anong klase magpatakbo ang gobyerno at militar sa lugar na iyon. hindi ko nilalahat sila pero mas maraming bulok at iilan lang ang matitino tikom pa ang bibig…

  • im_not_convinced

    sure ba yan? baka naman kapatid ni general ang nasa likod ng mask….

  • Cruxofthematter

    This is what is one of the many things that is wrong with this country. Everything is publicized – like this one. This should never be allowed to go public. The rewards can be announced but never the awarding as this is detrimental to the safety of those concerned. Where is conventional wisdom? Absent.

    it works! langisan at lagyan ng pera at hanapin ang salarin! it really works! dapat lang naman na itago ang personalidad ng mga informants. it really works.

    what about the kidnappers? these blood suckers should not have any place in society. what can Pinoy, AFP and PNP do about this?

  • ApoLapullapu

    We have yet to hear the PNP do the same.  The PNP image has been tarnished as the public impression is that many people in the force are engaged in illegal activities instead of law enforcement.  In Iligan and Lanao they have not come up with any progress in the investigation of the kidnapping of Earl Membreve last October 21.  Many people in the area are wondering whether or not the incident was even reported to Camp Crame.According to a retired police officer, the local PNP command wants to -project that peace and order is excellent in the area.  Even the series of criminal incidents in the MSU Main Campus in Marawi City have not been solved.  Not a single suspect has been identified and no case have been filed.

  • JosengSisiw1

    there’s something fishy on this, 22m to only 1 person. for him to know the whereabouts of so many terrorist, he should be practically connected with them. is this guy still alive today? with so many dead terrorist the possibilty that he is already known to them is high. one more thing with so many bad eggs in the military, knowing he has that 22m in hand i dont think he can go far from camp aguinaldo….just my thoughts…

    • akramgolteb

    How stupid of the Intelligence Agnecy of the Philippines to publish on a national newspaper the handing of awards to whistleblowers – one who ratted on a terrorist at that! And Filipinos are expected to put their faith with the idiots in ISAFP?

    • batangsulpok

      Ang problema, baka barya lang ang ibinigay sa informant dahil di puwede silang magreklamo kaya meron na namang nagkapera dito at diyan mahusay ang ISAFP.

    • akramgolteb

    • arao_liwanag

      May balita na nahagip siya ng bagyo. Totoo ba ito? Sayang naman kung hindi pa siya namatay.

      • pulis

        Awa ni Satanas hindi pa bok, kasi sya’y masamang damo at hindi pa tapos ang pangangatay nya ng mga NPA tsaka masyadong mali-it ang pabuya..Hinihintay nyan maging isang Billion upang may pambayad sa mga Justices…Whaaaa!

  • arao_liwanag

    According to some reports, the reward was anomalous because it was awarded to the so called tipster who are themselves members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and with reward or no reward, that’s there job and they are already receiving salary for those job. The reward is suppose to be given to civilian informer with no employment connection to the armed force.

    So the ISAP is giving the rewards to and among themselves. Brilliant racket innovation.

    Leche namang raket ito, lalong dadami ang mga NPA dahil sa mga  award-award  at marami ring mga loko-lokong generals na magraraket. mabuti pa ang North Korea nakagawa ng raket at nakaabot na sa kalawakan, ang AFP puro na lang raket sa bulsa
