The three suspects arrested by the Anti-Kidnapping Group of the Philippine National Police for kidnapping a Japanese national

The PNP Anti Kidnaping Group (PNP-AKG) rescued a Japanese national in Plaridel, Bulacan last April 5.

The victim identified as Yuji Nakajima arrived in the country last March 22 with another Japanese national identified as Yusuke Obara.

Obara brought Nakijima to the country in order to pay his debts by working for him.

On the same day, two men went to the hotel in Manila where Nakajima was staying at and invited him to come with them after talking with Obara on the phone.

Nakajima was not aware he was a victim of kidnapping. Involved in the crime were Obara, a certain Miyashita Takashi and two Filipinos identified as Roberto and Reggie Reyes.

The suspects’ plan of seeking ransom from the victim’s relatives in Japan was halted after the incident was reported to the police by a relative of the Reyes siblings.

With this, the PNP–Anti Kidnapping Group rescued Nakajima at a drug store in Plaridel, Bulacan.

The following morning the police unit arrested Miyashita Takashi in Parañaque and the Reyes siblings in Pasig City.

Authorities seized from the suspects a passport, various cards of the victim, a .45 caliber gun, and ammunition.

“Two are still at large. One is a Filipino, and the other is Yusuke Obara who is being pursued by the Japanese police,” said PSSupt. Glen Dumlao, director of PNP-AKG.

The three arrested suspects are facing charges of serious illegal detention and violation of Republic Act 10591 or the comprehensive law on firearms and ammunition. — Lea Ylagan | UNTV News & Rescue

Obando LGU declares state of calamity over massive fish kill

The fish kill has affected millions of milk fish in the area.

 

BULACAN, Philippines – The municipal government of Obando declared a state of calamity Tuesday, May 15, due to massive fish kill that began on May 5.

The fish kill has affected a total of 233 hectares of fish ponds, killing millions of milk fish in the area.

According to Mayor Edwin Santos, the declaration will provide financial assistance to affected fishpond owners and fishermen to recover from their losses.

“Malaking lugi so kailangan natin tulungan para makabawi…Pwede silang humingi ng tulong sa bangko at makapag loan para mabigyan sila ng pagkakataon. Pwede rin matulungan sila ng ating (Bureau of) Fisheries mabigyan sila ng binhi,” Mayor Santos said.

(It’s a big loss so we need to help so that they can recoup their investments…they may seek bank loans to start over. The Bureau of Fisheries may also assist them by providing fingerlings.)

Following the declaration of state of calamity, fish pond owners and fishermen may request additional fingerlings to the initial 3,000 provided by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR.)

BFAR released on May 10 the result of its examination of water samples from Obando fish ponds.

The agency found that extreme hot temperature is causing lack of oxygen and production of amonia in fish ponds in the area resulting in fish kill.

Meanwhile, the municipal government of Obando is planning to establish a laboratory that would study and monitor the state of fish manufacturing in the town to prevent another massive fishkill in the future.— Nestor Torres | UNTV News & Rescue
