MANILA, Philippines – Nasa walo pang lider ng kidnap for ransom groups ang nasa target list ngayon ng PNP-Anti Kidnapping Group.
Ayon kay PNP-AKG Chief of Staff P/SSupt. Rene Aspera, pawang nasa Luzon ang mga naturang sindikato.
Aniya, sa ngayon ay hindi organisado ang ibang grupo dahil kadalasang nagkakanya kanyang lakad ang mga miyembro nito.
Sinabi pa nito na ang ilan sa kanila ay lumipat na sa kidnapping operations mula sa robbery hold-up at iligal na droga dahil humahanap na ang mga ito ng mas malaking pagkakakitaan tulad ng kidnapping.
“Sa aming target list we have listed about 8 except sa Mindanao area, but ang lider ng mga ito ay nakukuha na natin kay Padilio, Buenaora, Licop at Tyrone Dela Cruz,” pahayag ni Aspera.
Dahil dito, pinayuhan ni Aspera ang publiko na doblehin ang pag-iingat upang hindi mabiktima ng kidnap for ransom gang.
Ayon pa sa opisyal, kung maaari ay mag-ingat na gumamit ng iisang ruta at iba-ibahin rin ang mga aktibidad araw-araw.
Kung nakatira sa subdibisyon, hangga’t maaari ay palagiang may security guard hindi lamang sa mismong gate ng subdibisyon kundi maging sa paligid ng bahay.
“Marami na tayong preventive measures para makaiwas sa kidnapping, ‘wag masyadong pina-pattern ang ating ginagawa sa pang araw-araw, kung maaari ay magkaroon ng guard sa bahay,” payo pa ni Aspera.
Malaking tulong din aniya ang pagkakaroon ng closed-circuit television (CCTV) sa mga establisyimento upang makita ang galaw ng mga kawatan at maagapan ang pambibiktima ng mga ito. (Lea Ylagan / Ruth Navales, UNTV News)
The Philippine National Police-Anti Kidnapping Group (PNP-AKG) has arrested a Chinese national for allegedly kidnapping a fellow Chinese national over a gambling debt.
Chinese national, Libu Xu, is among the six suspects who purportedly kidnapped 25-year-old Xiaoguo Bian.
The hot pursuit operations for the remaining suspects continue, according to PNP-AKG spokesman Police Lieutenant Colonel Elmer Cereno.
“On going ang backtracking ng mga tao natin kasi identify naman sila kaya nagha-hot pursuit operation sila ngayon (The backtracking of our personnel is ongoing [the suspects] have already been identified so authorities are currently conducting hot pursuit operations),” he said.
According to Cereno, Xiaoguo was held captive from July 29 to 31 at a hotel and was beaten up by the suspects.
The suspects asked Xiaoguo to pay RMB 300,000 for his release. He had a P1.5 million debt with a casino financier at Midas Hotel.
The suspects also went to the PCPS and told the authorities that they will file a case against Xiaoguo.
“So while the duty investigator was busy, they put him inside the jail without his knowledge. The investigator did not see that the Chinese men filmed the victim while he is in jail,” Cereno said.
The suspects then sent a video to Xiaoguo’s father in China after he was beaten up and while he was inside the PCPS jail cell.
Authorities later released Xiaoguo after no sufficient evidence was found to pursue the case.
On August 15, the authorities found out about the kidnapping incident after Xiaoguo’s father flew to the Philippines. He showed the video to the authorities and asked for police assistance.
After the rescue operation, Cereno said they are now conducting a follow-up operations for the remaining suspects.
Meanwhile, Cereno said they will review possible liability against the police investigator in the PCPS since it was never in their protocol to detain a person being complained. —AAC (with reports from Lea Ylagan)
MANILA, Philippines — Teresita Ang See, chairperson of Movement for the Restoration of Peace and Order (MRPO) revealed that they have not recorded any incidents of kidnapping in the last two months.
The group concludes that incidents of kidnapping in the country indeed have declined under the Duterte administration.
This record is a big improvement as compared to previous years wherein the number of kidnapping cases is high.
In the past, they have recorded at least two kidnapping cases in a span of one week.
“It is not common that we have zero kidnapping case in two months. So far, we have zero this past two months. We don’t have any cases currently,” said Ang-See.
The PNP-Anti Kidnapping group have also recorded a reduction in kidnap for ransom cases.
The police unit said, they have recorded nine (9) kidnap for ransom cases from January this year up to the present.
PNP- Anti Kidnapping Group (PNP-AKG) spokesperson PSupt. Abelardo Borromeo said, “We have not recorded any case of kidnap for ransom by terrorist threat groups and by organized crime groups and criminal gangs.”
In 2016, there were 29 cases; 38 in 2015; 49 in 2014; 52 in 2013; and 26 in 2012.
The decline in number is due to the intensified campaign of the PNP and the public to fight kidnapping in the country. This includes a number of free seminars to educate the public on safety measures against kidnapping. — Mon Jocson| UNTV News & Rescue

The PNP Anti-Kidnapping Group has rescued a businessman after three months of captivity in Bicol region.
PNP chief PDG Ronald Bato dela Rosa has presented to the media Francis Leo Maulion, a businessman victimized by a five-member kidnap for ransom group in Bicol region.
The PNP Anti-Kidnapping Group rescued Maulion in Ragay, Camarines Sur last March 6.
PNP AKG chief P/SSupt. Glenn Dumlao said the victim was abducted on the 23rd of November last year in Calabanga, Camarines Sur.
The family of the victims initially paid 1.4 million pesos to the kidnappers.
However, the suspects have asked for another ransom worth 1.2 million pesos. This time, an entrapment operation was conducted where the operatives and the kidnappers, armed with high calibre firearms, exchanged fire.
“Iba yung nagbabantay sa safehouse at iba yung kukuha ng pay off, ang nangyari sa pay off area doon nila binuhusan ng tropa na walo at naka high powered firearms sila at nagkaroon ng encounter don and they took the high ground at marurunong dahil yun daw ang training nila, may nagtuturo daw sa kanila na tinatawag na danny sundalo,” AKG Chief Dumlao said.
(Others were guarding the safehouse while the others would go to the pay off area. They were eight of them and were armed with high powered firearms. An encounter took place there, and they took the high ground. They knew what to do. They said that’s how they were trained, and that they were trained by a certain Danny Sundalo.)
Maulion, owner of a poultry farm, gasoline station, and a bakery, said he was in his farm when armed men pointed a gun at him, and forced him to come with them.
The five arrested suspects were the ones who guarded him as they transfer places. There was also a time when he was kept in a house just beside the home of the barangay chairman of Camalig Albay.
“Pinapakain naman po nila ako pero palagi po akong nakatali at tinatakot … papatayin po, pupugutan at puputulan daw po daliri at ipapadala sa pamilya ko,” the victim said.
(They fed me, but they always tie, and scare me. “we will kill you, behead you, maim your fingers and send your body parts to your family.That’s what they always tell me)
General Bato, meanwhile, has expressed anger towards the barangay chairman whom he said might possibly be involved in the kidnapping.
“Anong klaseng kapitan ka? ay p*** tell it to the marines, all the while tinutukan ka baril kaya di ka maka report sa pulis… two months sya don at nakikita nya na lagi mo kausap ang mga abductors nya at guwardya nya e wala ka ginagawa at lokohin mo kami? magkano promise sayo na share mo sa una? dito magkano share mo dapat? anak ng bakang kapitan ka?” said PDG Dela Rosa.
(What kind of a barangay chairman are you? Son of a b*tch! Tell it to the marines. All the while, you are pointed with a gun so you were not able to report to the police. He was there for two months, and he always saw you talking to his abductors. And you even did nothing. So you’re gonna fool us now? How much share do they promised you?)
Authorities are still determining the other motives of the suspects.
PNP is also conducting a pursuit operations against the leader of the group identified as Ronald Cuachin and its two other members also operating the provinces of Quezon, Batangas and Laguna. – Lea Ylagan | UNTV News & Rescue
