Rebel leader bounty raised to P500K

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

Brig. Gen. Inocencio Pasaporte, 303rd Infantry Brigade commander, yesterday said that the bounty being offered for the arrest of a notorious rebel leader linked to numerous murder cases has been raised to P500,000.

This was after more stakeholders pledged to increase the P300,000 bounty for rebel leader Roger Fabillar, alias Arnel Tapang, Pasaporte said.

Fabillar and six of his followers, remnants of the dismantled Northern Negros Front, are facing murder charges in court in connection with the killings of Lalong barangay chairman Benjamen Javoc, Renato Estrebillo and Rodel Nobleza in Calatrava last month.

Pasaporte disclosed that the manhunt operations against the group of Fabillar is currently ongoing.

Lt. Col. J Jay Javines, 79th Infantry Battalion commander, said the group of Fabillar is operating in the hinterlands of Calatrava and Toboso.

Fabillar was described by the 79IB to be 31 years old, 5 feet 6 inches tall, with curly hair, frequently wears a jacket and carries a clutch bag.

For information on Fabillar, Javines advised the public to contact 0927-339-2481, or 0963-873-9989.

In a statement, rebel spokesperson Ka Cecil Estrella claimed that the 79IB is wasting people’s money and promoting bounty hunting as an AFP helicopter dropped hundreds of flyers containing the image of a supposed NPA cadre with reward money at the mountain barangays of Calatrava on Sept. 10.*
