Statement on the Voluntary Surrender of Heinous Crime Convicts
As directed by the President, the Philippine National Police (PNP) tracking teams are ready to rearrest all heinous crime convicts who have not voluntarily surrendered to the PNP and the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) authorities as of midnight last night.
In light of the mass surrender of convicts at the BuCor last night, the DILG will await today the final list of those unaccounted individuals from the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the BuCor. As soon as we receive that list of unaccounted individuals today, we shall begin the manhunt to bring them to justice for evading the full service of their sentences.
We thank all the PNP units, the local government units, and the general public for assisting the DOJ and the DILG-PNP in the voluntary surrender of the heinous crime convicts during the 15 day grace period. ###
