FORMER Major General Jovito Palparan and two others were found guilty of kidnapping and serious illegal detention by the Malolos Regional Trial Court (RTC) on Monday.
The case was in connection with the disappearance of UP students Karen Empeño and Sherlyn Cadapan in 2006, and the judgment was promulgated at the Malolos RTC before Judge Alexander Tamayo.
Aside from Palparan, also found guilty of the crime were Lt. Col. Felipe Anotado, Jr. and Staff Sgt. Edgardo Osorio.
