DAVAO CITY, Philippines – President Rodrigo Duterte raised the reward for the capture of scalawag cops to P5 million.
Speaking at the Hugpong Ng Pagbabago (HNP) convention here on Friday, Duterte told the policemen “to better shape up”.
“Yang mga pulis maraming kalokohan… So the good practice maybe is, I will now raise the amount to 5 million per ninja cop,” the President said.
“If you bring him to me dead, I’ll give you 5 million… Pagbuhay, bigyan kita diyes mil,” he added.
Duterte also called on “ninja” cops to surrender within 48 hours or else an additional P1 million reward will be added every month for their capture.
“Pag hindi kayo magsurrender dadagdagan ko yan… 1 million per month. Hanggang ang asawa mo maghanap ng boyfriend na papatayin ka,” he said.
The President also commended the authorities who performed their duties well.
“Ngayon ang mga pulis sa panahon ko, nagtatrabaho at hindi natatakot. Kasi sabi ko, sa trabaho hindi performance of their duties kundi fulfillment of their mandate,” he said.
Duterte said he would also provide P50 million for the intelligence fund per month so that policemen could do their job.
In September last year, Duterte increased the reward for the capture of “ninja” cops from P2 million to P3 million.(davaotoday.com)
