September 19, 2019 - Thursday 4:09 PM by Ruth Palo
DAVAO CITY -- The Police Regional Office (PRO) 11 has ordered the deployment of tracker teams in all of its police units to arrest all heinous crime convicts released under Good Conduct Time Allowance (GCTA) law who failed to surrender after the 15-day ultimatum given by President Rodrigo Duterte ended yesterday.
Speaking to reporters during Wednesday’s media briefing at The Royal Mandaya Hotel, PRO 11 spokesperson Major Jason Baria said the manhunt against the remaining 60 GCTA beneficiaries in Davao Region will be intensified.
Baria said each police station has its own tracker team responsible to locate the addresses of the heinous crime convicts living in the region.
He said PRO 11 has a list of the convicts’ last known addresses in the region as provided by the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor).
Baria said released convicts who fail to present themselves to the authorities are now treated as fugitives and are subject to the mandate of the police to get them and bring them back to the Bucor.
President Rodrigo Duterte had earlier ordered some 2,000 heinous crime convicts who were freed under the Good Conduct Time Allowance (GCTA) law to surrender before September 19.
Davao Region has a total of 76 heinous crime convicts freed under GCTA law. Of the 76, only 16 have surrendered to authorities as of Thursday morning.
