This is confirmed by Major Gen. Restituto Padilla, public affairs chief of the Armed Forces to DZMM news. According to Padilla, Salic surrendered to National Bureau of Investigation in April 2017 and still under the study of the government due to the supposed threat to his life.

The doctor has been charged in the US for his involvement in a plan to bomb New York's subway and Times Square. 

Salic allegedly transferred $423 in May 2016 to two other suspects to help fund the operation, according to US court documents released Friday.
