Philippine cops eyed in 8-year-old's abduction

A GROUP of rogue policemen believed to have forged an alliance with a notorious organized crime group is being eyed in the abduction of an eight-year old boy in a school bus in Laguna. The victim was rescued by agents of the National Bureau of Investigation in Taytay, Rizal Tuesday days after he was snatched in front of his classmates in Barangay San Francisco, BiƱan, Laguna. Highly-reliable sources said the suspects who are known to have links with the dreaded Ozamis –Alferez organized crime group are also believed responsible for at least two other recent kidnapping incidents. “We’re still investigating the real identities and background of the suspects,” a security official who refused to be named said. Justice Secretary Leila de Lima insisted that the abductors of the boy tried to demand ransom from his parents until an informant led NBI operatives to a small house inside Pinesville Subdivision in Taytay where they found the victim alone and starving. The abandoned shanty had been subjected to a routine inspection by police investigators hoping to find more clues that will lead them to the kidnappers. Investigators are also trying to locate the anonymous caller who tipped off the location of the victim amid the possibility that the informant knows something about the incident. De Lima ordered the NBI to transfer the boy to the custody of the PNP Anti-Kidnapping Group for further investigation.
