General Debold Sinas, chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP), gave all the suspects tagged in the alleged rape-slay of flight attendant Christine Angelica Dacera 72 hours to surrender, or face massive manhunt that may employ the use of force.

In a statement, Sinas also warned that they would arrest any person who would be coddling the suspects.

“This is a fair warning. Surrender within seventy-two (72) hours or we will hunt you down using force if necessary,” Sinas said in a statement—this portion of the statement was all capitalized.

Police have already taken under their custody three of the suspects in the alleged rape-slay of Dacera, identified as John Pascual Dela Serna III, 27; Rommel Daluro Galido, 29; and John Paul Reyes Halili, 25.

All of them were already charged with rape with homicide, a non-bailable offense with a maximum penalty of life imprisonment. A case of rape with homicide is considered as a heinous crime.

“We know who you are. Your family must turn you over to the police,” said Sinas in a statement.

“Those found to be abetting your escape will also be arrested,” he stressed.

Police listed the following as suspects: Gregorio Angelo de Guzman, Louie de Lima, Clark Jezreel Rapinan, Rey Englis, Mark Anthony Rosales, Jammyr Cunanan,  Valentine Rosales, a certain Ed Madrid; and a certain Paul.

Dacera, a flight attendant of the Philippine Airlines and was from General Santos City, was found dead in a bathtub of a Makati City hotel on January 1.

Meanwhile, Sinas assured the family of Dacera that justice will be served.
