Kidnappers Sue Hostage For Loss of Income
Hilarious and brilliant post, Dee71. But,
Warren Rodwell was released on Saturday after fifteen months in captivity after his brother used the proceeds from the sale of his house to meet the $94,000 ransom. Abu Sayyaf, Mr Rodwell’s kidnappers, a militant Islamic group based in the Philippines, is threatening Mr Rodwell with court action after an internal audit revealed a shortfall between the ransom and the actual costs associated with keeping him in inhumane conditions for such a long period. A spokesman for Abu Sayyaf explained, via a video posted on YouTube, that had they been made aware of the problems with the survey on Mr Rodwell’s brother’s house at an earlier date they could have adjusted their demands accordingly.
After considering the evidence, a Sydney based lawyer, who wishes to remain anonymous, believes Abu Sayyaf have a strong case.
aint that the truth? These rebels really do
need to improve their basic numeracy skills.

MANILA, Philippines -- The police’s Criminal Investigation and Detection Group on Thursday said it had captured the alleged leader of a kidnap-for-ransom gang responsible for the 2011 abduction of Australian Warren Rodwell and the Christmas massacre that killed at least eight Badjao fishermen.
Mamay Aburi and two of his cohorts, one of them identified as Moin Dunggan, were nabbed along Dr. A. Santos Avenue in Barangay San Antonio, Parañaque City Thursday noon, a CIDG statement said.
Several firearms and a hand grenade were seized from them.
In his report to CIDG director Chief Superintendent Benjamin Magalon, Superintendent Alexander Tagum, acting chief of the Anti-Organized Crime Unit, said that the Aburi gang operated in the Zamboanga Peninsula in coordination with the Abu Sayyf group in Basilan.
Aside from the Rodwell kidnapping and the Badjao massacre, Aburi also admitted to the kidnappings of Randel Talania, Cynthia Cabuberder, five-year old Alexa Dela Cruz and Kathy Casipong, who was recently released, Tagum said.
Rodwell was kidnapped in Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay in December 2011 and released in March 2013. Before he was freed, his captors uploaded a video of him on YouTube.
On the other hand, nine of 11 Badjao fishermen went missing after their boats were strafed by gunmen on Christmas Day in waters off Olutanga, Zamboanga Sibugay. In early January, a police marine patrol found eight headless bodies, including those of two boys, in a boat drifting off Zamboanga City.
