Rewards for Justice Pays $10 Million in Philippines; $5 Million Reward Each Paid for Two Abu Sayyaf Terrorist Leaders
U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines Kristie A. Kenney distributed rewards to four Filipino citizens in a public ceremony on the island of Jolo today. A group of Filipino citizens, represented by the four present at the ceremony, will share the total reward of $10 million. This payment is the second largest of its kind by the Bureau of Diplomatic Security’s Rewards for Justice (RFJ) program, the U.S. Department of State’s counterterrorism rewards program. Two notorious high-ranking leaders of the Abu Sayyaf Group, Khadaffy Janjalani and Abu Solaiman, were killed as a result of information provided by Filipino sources. Both terrorists were responsible for the kidnappings and deaths of Filipino and American citizens. Janjalani was killed during a battle with Armed Forces of the Philippines in October 2006, while Abu Solaiman died in similar circumstances in January 2007.
Since its inception, RFJ has paid more than $72 million to more than 50 people who have provided actionable information that has brought terrorists to justice or prevented acts of international terrorism. Anyone with information on a past or planned act of international terrorism against U.S. persons or property worldwide, or regarding the location of a key terrorist leader, is urged to contact RFJ directly at the following:
