- The Philippine National Police (PNP) is ready to obey the “shoot-to-kill” order of President Rodrigo Duterte
- About 1,700 released convicts are urged to surrender themselves within 15 days
- The PNP-CIDG has been deploying trackers now to locate the criminals
Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Oscar Albayalde said that they will surely obey the “shoot-to-kill” order of President Rodrigo Duterte over the recently released 1,700 convicts.
KAMI learned that the President urged the 1,700 convicts who were released due to good conduct time allowance (GCTA) to surrender within 15 days.
In a report by the Inquirer (author Catherine Gonzales), Albayalde also mentioned that the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) is set to deploy tracker teams to locate the released convicts.
“Of course, ‘yung shoot-to-kill order naman, if they will resist arrest, kung talagang lalaban sila, wala tayong magagawa,” Albayalde said.
“This is a normal police operation serving a warrant of arrest. Kasi kung ire-reverse ‘yung decision, of course after 15 days, they will already face arrest. Kung iyan ay lalaban ay wala tayong magagawa,” he added.

As reported by GMA News Online (author Anna Felicia Bajo), Albayalde said that the released criminals could be subjected to “warrantless arrest.”
In a previous report by KAMI, President Duterte fired Nicanor Faeldon as the chief of Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) for allegedly violating his order.
As stated in the Republic Act No. 10592, the good conduct time allowance covers those who are “qualified” for good behavior and will be granted a deduction from their initial sentence.
