Special Envoy to China Mon Tulfo has urged President Rodrigo Duterte to pardon retired Army Maj. Gen. Jovito Palparan after granting the same privilege to US Marine Lance Corporal Joseph Scott Pemberton.

In his September 12 column for the Manila Times, Tulfo said Palparan’s conviction for kidnapping, serious illegal detention and killing of two college students in 2006 was tied to his job.

“There was no direct evidence that Palparan had ordered the killing, just hearsay testimony from a farmer who claimed to have been detained along with the two coeds,” he said.

“In convicting Palparan, the judge was apparently swayed by the clamor for the general’s head from leftist groups and the Noynoy Aquino administration,” Tulfo added.

He said Duterte’s pardon of Palparan will boost his reputation among the military.

“If the President pardons Palparan, he will become a hero to the entire officers corps of the Armed Forces of the Philippines,” Tulfo said.

Duterte last week pardoned Pemberton for killing transgender woman Jennifer Laude in 2014.

Pemberton was deported from the Philippines Sunday (September 13).
