MANILA, Philippines – The informant who gave the information which led to the capture of fugitive retired Gen. Jovito Palparan is set to receive the P2 million bounty, an Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) official confirmed.
Palparan, also referred to as “Berdugo” or the Butcher, was arrested early morning on Tuesday, August 12, inside a two-storey residential house along Teresa Street in Sta. Mesa, Manila.
Intelligence Service of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (ISAFP) chief, Maj. Gen. Eduardo Año, told the Inquirer there is only one informant involved, one who was recruited specifically to track down the whereabouts of the 64-year-old former military officer.
Año also denied the reward for Palparan’s capture is P5 million as previously reported. He added the agents of Naval Intelligence and Security Force (NISF) will not receive anything from the bounty since it is part of the unit’s job. (Click here to read more)
