The National Capital Region Police Office Director GUILLERMO LORENZO T ELEAZAR held a press briefing this morning and presented to the media the surrendered persons released under the Good Conduct Time Allowance (GCTA) Law.
PMGEN ELEAZAR stated today that, “The National Capital Region Police Office is inviting the persons released from prison in line with the GCTA law controversy, to surrender or turn themselves in before midnight tonight, the deadline prescribed by PRESIDENT RODRIGO ROA DUTERTE. The police precincts, police stations and our offices here at NCRPO are open 24 hours, and we shall be ready to arrange for your turnover to the proper authorities. After midnight, we shall be fielding tracker teams to pursue and arrest these men.”
Based on Bureau of Corrections’ records, there were 202 Person Deprived of Liberty (PDL) with recorded Metro Manila address. Out of those 202 PDL, 21 have surrendered in police stations, 3 directly to BuCor while 2 died due to natural causes with a total of 26 listed in NCR.
On the other hand, 24 PDL have surrendered though not recorded as residents of Metro Manila, making a total of 48 surrenderees.
As accounted, there are still 176 freed PDL in Metro Manila, who have city addresses within the 28 of 38 NCRPO Police Stations’ areas of responsibility.
“I am appealing to the public, especially the relatives and friends of these freed prisoners to convince them to turn themselves in to show good conduct and avoid getting into new trouble with the law,” the NCRPO Chief said.
PMGEN ELEAZAR asks the public to help us in our pursuit to search out these men by communicating directly through the Team NCRPO’s hotlines: Globe: 0915-888-8181 / Smart: 0999-901-8181 or go to the nearest police station you can reach.
