Something doesn't smell right about this... its so crazy; you can't this stuff up.....

 

 

MANILA, Philippines–Airport policemen stopped a Swedish man on Sunday from leaving for Iloilo province with his 28-year-old Filipino girlfriend after her family accused him of kidnapping her.

 

According to Philippine National Police Aviation Security Group (PNP-Avsegroup) head Chief Supt. Pablo Francisco Balagtas, his men took into custody Zohar Katz, 29, after he and his girlfriend Samantha Anne Cang showed up for their flight at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3.

 

Earlier, Cang’s mother and older brother filed a kidnapping complaint against him with the PNP Anti-Kidnapping Group (AKG).

 

Aside from arresting Katz, the police also rescued Cang who insisted, however, that she was not being kidnapped. The couple told the lawmen that they were consenting adults who loved each other.

 

Based on the April 30 complaint filed by Cang’s 36-year-old brother Ian Henry with the PNP-AKG, he claimed that his sister was abducted on April 25 by Katz whom he described as her “stalker.”

 

He said he last saw her driving away from their Pasay City house with the Swedish national in a sport utility vehicle.

 

In a joint complaint-affidavit filed by Ian Henry and his mother, Betty, they claimed that Katz and Cang met somewhere in Europe after she went there by herself on a monthlong tour.

 

They claimed that Cang had complained about being stalked by Katz which prompted her to return home on April 24. The Swedish national, however, followed her to the Philippines the next day and went to their house in Pasay City. It was at that time that he kidnapped Cang, they said.

 

They added in their affidavit: “Every time we would try to contact her, Zohar Katz was the one answering the phone, telling us that we would never see our Samantha again, as he would be leaving the country with [her] very soon. [in] the background, we would hear Samantha crying. Unfortunately, since she was being held by Zohar Katz against her will, she could not talk to us and tell us her whereabouts. Zohar Katz started threatening us and even told us, ‘Enjoy your life because it will be very short.’”

 

The airport police said they would turn over Katz to the PNP-AKG for further Investigation.

What a pile of rubbish , another example of the complete inadequacies in the Filipino law , to allow for such preposterous behaviour to take place , the brother and the mother should also be taken int

Roger,  I'm positive the AKG (Anti kidnapping Group) has protocol throughout the country.   Is there any way possible you could ask your nephew what triggers an arrest of a 29 year old foreigner in

Great.   Could you please direct him to this topic and ask him to explain the reasoning behind their actions.   Thanks

Mother/brother tried to extort money from the foreigner.   He refused to pay the extortion.   

    Mother/brother file kidnappping charges for revenge.   

    Police do not care.   Most likely mother/brother paid police under the table to file charges.

     Now corrupt cops want extort money from the nasty foreigner to let them go free.

    Only in the 11th most corrupt country in the world.

Strange legal system here.  This is right up there with the truck driver on the SRP who was driving his work truck and a car full of people crossed over into his lane and hit him.  The people in the car were killed and the driver of the truck went to jail.  He was only released when the family of the people in the car "forgave" him and of course his company paid them money.  WTF is up with that?

Everytime a story like this comes to light the entire country loses face. If the alleged kidnapping victim herself denies being kidnapped the police should go arrest the people filing the claim for making false charges.

If the foreigner is in the right

You will never see any more about it.

Nothing to do with justice

Its the saving face thing.

My nephew is head of the AKG for the Visayas and I can guarantee that he is not corrupt nor would he tolerate any corruption from the men that work for him. They are hard working and under appreciated, but I am sure he will be happy to hear that you believe he is corrupt.

 

As a side note, many different government agencies do read this and other forums.

With all respect Roger , that comment is uncalled for . no one here knew of your personal association with anyone involved in this , and it is easy , on prior history of things that occur in this country to make a throw away comment like that , and your response seems to indicate a threat. Bad Form.
