Interior & Local Government Secretary Eduardo Año asked local government officials, including barangay officials, to help the Philippine National Police (PNP) in the voluntary surrender of the heinous crime convicts.

“If you are aware of any convict in your area of responsibility, you may escort those who wish to surrender to the nearest Police Station to ensure their safety and well-being. We also call on the public to facilitate the voluntary surrender of these individuals,” Año said in a statement.

Año urged all those who were released under the Good Conduct Time Allowance (GCTA) to voluntarily surrender to the nearest Philippine National Police (PNP) station or directly to the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) and for the PNP unit concerned to immediately transfer their custody to the BuCor.

“We are pleased with the growing number of heinous crime convicts who have heeded the President’s directive to voluntarily surrender to authorities for a re-evaluation and recomputation of their Good Conduct Time Allowance (GCTA) by the Department of Justice (DOJ),” Año said.

Through the Joint Review Committee, both the DOJ and the DILG are working overtime to review the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of RA 10592 and the BuCor Uniform Manual to plug the loopholes therein and ensure that only those truly deserving is entitled to the GCTA.

After the lapse of the 15-day period for voluntary surrender, the remaining convicts will be the subject of a man-hunt by special tracker teams of the PNP without the need of a warrant because they are evading the full service of their respective sentences.

After the re-computation of their GCTAs, those who were found to have qualified and served their full sentences in accordance with the intent of the law will be released immediately. In the meantime, they shall remain in the custody of the BuCor.
