MANILA, Philippines — Justice Secretary Leila De Lima announced Thursday that the government was increasing the reward money for information that would lead to the arrest of retired Major General Jovito Palparan from P500,000 to P1million.


“[DILG] Secretary Jess Robredo and I just agreed that we increase the informants’ reward money for any significant information that will lead to the arrest of retired Major General Jovito Palparan,” De Lima announced at a press conference at the Department of Justice.

She said they have good leads for Palparan’s arrest but were increasing the reward money as a supplement.

“We want this over and done with the soonest possible time because if this will take longer, chances of arresting him might get slimmer,” De Lima said.

Palparan, together with Master Sergeant Rizal Hilario who is also at large and Lieutenant Colonel Felipe Anotado and S/Sgt. Edgardo Osorio, is facing a case for kidnapping and serious illegal detention for the abduction of still missing UP students Karen Empeno and Sherlyn Cadapan.
