        The activist organizations are rejoicing now because one of their mortal enemy Ret. Gen. Jovito Palparan was already caught by the National Bureu of Investigation through entrapment operation in San Juan, Manila before dawn of August 12. The NBI team who caught him told that Palparan that he was  like a hermit they arrested him. Because he was looked very haggard. From having a 'brusko' image, he looks like Brad Pit (Alien!)
            Three years ago, the court decided that the retired general should be treated as a criminal after they examined the filed cases against him. They found out that it has a probable cause. So, he must be a subject of man-hunt operation. Palparan is charged with two counts of kidnapping and seriously illegal detention of two UP students named Sheryl Cadapan and Karen Empeno.

            Palparan became an AFP Chief during the regime of former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, now a representative of Lubao, Pampanga. During his term (2001-2006), he was applauded by the former president because of his good leadership. He became very active in his campaign against the leftist groups. He was allegdely ordered to kill and abducted many leftist and activists. That’s why he was portrayed as the executioner or ‘berdugo’ in tagalog word. After he retired from service, he ran in politics and won as a representative of Bantay party-list, an organization against New People’s Army.
            For the activists and with their allies, even they are happy to Palparan’s captivity. They are not contented, they want Palparan to pay all of his debts. They are asking the court that they should treat him as an ordinary prisoner. No special treatment for the retired general. The authorities give their assurance that they will not let it to happen. They said that their organization are very professional. They already extended their effort to find him; they are also seeking for justice for the allegedly victims of the former general.
