PNP revs up manhunt for 2 NDF officials

MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine National Police (PNP) has intensified its manhunt against National Democratic Front (NDF) officials Benito and Wilma Tiamzon after they were sentenced to life imprisonment by a Quezon City court on Friday for the 1988 kidnapping and serious illegal detention of four soldiers.

PNP chief Gen. Debold Sinas issued the directive yesterday as he stressed the Tiamzon couple should serve their sentence.

“The next time we arrest them, they can no longer get out,” he told reporters in an interview at Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City.

The case stemmed from the 1988 kidnapping of four soldiers in Quezon province. The couple, as officials of the political arm of the Communist Party of the Philippines, was released in 2016

Sinas refused to comment if they have information on the couple’s whereabouts but said efforts are ongoing to arrest them.
