The Philippine Military Class of 1983 has announced a P1 million reward for information that could lead to the capture of those behind the murder of their classmate, former Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) board secretary  Wesley Barayuga.

In July, the 61-year-old Barayuga and his driver were shot dead inside their vehicle in broad daylight in Mandaluyong. CCTV footage showed a lone gunman on a motorbike carrying out the attack.

The case remains unresolved, prompting the PMA “Matikas” Class to pool funds to help facilitate the probe. Among Barayuga’s classmates are Interior Secretary Eduardo Año and 3 former military chiefs.

PMA Class 1983 posted the notice of reward, and said those with information regarding the crime may contact them at cellphone numbers 09216540715 (Smart) or 09673155108 (Globe).

“The information given that leads to the determination of the identity and apprehension of any person or persons must be given no later than one month after his/their arrest. All reward claims must be in writing and shall be received in person,” PMA Class 1983 said.

“The reward may be apportioned among various persons and/or paid for the various persons as the circumstances fairly dictate. Any claims for the reward funds should be filed with the PMA Matikas Class of 1983 at the PMA Alumni Center, Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City,” they added.

Barayuga, a retired police general, was a native of Nueva Ecija. After graduating from the PMA, attained a law degree from the University of San Agustin.

The Eastern Police District had created a special task force to probe the murder. – Rappler.com
