MANILA, Philippines — Six of the nine former police officers accused of killing four Army intelligence officers in Jolo, Sulu last year have sent surrender feelers, Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Gen. Debold Sinas said yesterday.

Sinas did not identify the former police officers, saying  negotiations for their surrender are ongoing.

The suspects were released from the PNP Custodial Center at Camp Crame after Sinas approved their dismissal from the service.

A court in Jolo later issued warrants for their arrest.

Sinas expressed confidence that the suspects would surrender to the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao police not later this week.

Murder and planting of evidence charges were filed against Abdelzhimar Padjiri, Hanie Baddiri, Iskanda Susulan, Ernisar Sappal, Sulki Andaki, Moh Nur Pasani, Admudzrin Hadjaruddin, Alkajal Mandangan and Rajiv Patulan.

The former policemen were accused of killing Maj. Arvin Indamog, Capt. Irwin Managuelod, Sgt. Eric Velasco and Cpl. Abdal Asula.
