The vice mayor of a southern Philippine city has offered a USD 121,000 reward for the decapitated head of the alleged leader of a gang of car thieves.
Davao City Vice Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, known for being tough on criminals, told a news conference in Davao on Wednesday that he would give 2 million pesos (USD 48,400) if suspect Ryan Yu is arrested and 4 million pesos (USD 96,800) if he's killed. He said he'd add another 1 million pesos (USD 24,200) if Yu's decapitated head is delivered to him "in ice."
Davao police chief Ronald de la Rosa said today that many interested parties had sent text messages wanting assurance they would receive the reward.
Human rights commission chairman Loretta Rosales said Duterte violated the law for making a judgment without due process.
