IBP offers P10-M rewards for witnesses in killings of judges, prosecutors, lawyers
The Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) has offered a P10 million reward to witnesses who are willing to come forward to testify against those behind the killing of judges, prosecutors and lawyers.
“This is to encourage witnesses and whistleblowers, to expedite investigation and prosecution, but more importantly to act asdeterrent,” said IBP President Domingo Egon Cayosa on Tuesday (Nov. 12).
“We have to encourage witnesses to help law enforcement agencies track
down the perpetrators of this crime,” he added.
Cayosa noted that the reward money comes from the IBP itself.
In the meantime, Cayosa said the IBP is waiting for the signing of a memorandum of agreement with law enforcement agencies for the implementation of the reward system.
