THE re­ward money for in­for­ma­tion lead­ing to the cap­ture of the mas­ter­mind and gun­men in the killing of univer­sity president Dr. Ri­cardo Ro­toras is now P2.5 mil­lion af­ter the City Coun­cil al­lo­cated P500,000 on Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 6.

City Coun­cilor Teo­dulfo Lao, who rec­om­mended adding an­other P500,000 to the P2 mil­lion ear­lier pledged by Mayor Os­car Moreno and Ro­toras’ brethren at the Free and Ac­cepted Ma­sons of the Philip­pines, said he hopes the re­ward money will has­ten the cap­ture of the Ro­toras’ mur­der­ers.

“Sana meron nang maka pin­point kung sino ang cul­prit ng crime na pumatay kay Dr. Ro­toras, yan ang ine-ex­pect natin kasi malaki na [ang re­ward money] (We ex­pect that there will be some­one who can pin­point the cul­prit of the crime of killing Dr. Ro­toras since the re­ward money in­creased),” Lao said.

Ro­toras, the president of the Univer­sity of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy of South­ern Philip­pines (USTP), was shot dead by at least two men last Satur­day, De­cem­ber 2, out­side his house in a pri­vate sub­di­vi­sion. RE­WARD,11
