MANILA, Philippines -- (UPDATE 3) The family of a television reporter who was abducted by alleged members of the Abu Sayyaf paid P5 million to her captors although only P2 million reached them, police and justice officials disclosed Friday.

In separate press conferences, Philippine National Police Chief Avelino Razon and Justice Secretary Raul Gonzalez said that the family of ABS-CBN’s Ces Drilon gave the ransom to Indanan Mayor Alvarez Isnaji, who was negotiating for her release, along with her crew and a professor, after they were abducted last June 8 in Sulu.

The kidnappers initially demanded a P15-million ransom.

"The initial payment was P5 million, however P2 million lang naibigay sa [only P2 million was given to the] kidnap for ransom group and the P3 million was kept by Mayor Isnaji," said Razon.

The PNP Chief also showed media pictures of the money being counted in Isnaji’s house in Indanan. Together in the picture were Alvarez, his son Haider, Sulu Vice Governor Lady Ann Sahidulah and Superintendent Winnie Quidato.

Citing accounts by witnesses whom he did not name, Gonzalez affirmed Razon’s statement that Isnaji allegedly pocketed P3 million and gave the balance to the abductors.

But Gonzalez also disclosed that aside from the P5 million that was given by Drilon’s family, another P15 million was paid to the kidnappers.

He said the money, which was inside a duffel bag, was delivered to the Orchid Hotel in Zamboanga via Negros Air Express Company, owned by the Lopezes of ABS-CBN.

Gonzalez said this was revealed to him by Interior and Local Government Secretary Ronaldo Puno whom INQUIRER.net could not reach for comment as of posting time.

Razon confirmed that there was another demand for P15 million but said that whether this was met would be the subject of further investigation.

Razon said that based on intelligence information gathered, the leader of the kidnap gang was identified as “Larin-Larin,” an alleged alias of Isnaji.

Gonzalez confirmed this, saying it was former Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) Nur Misuari who identified “Larin-Larin” as Mayor Isnaji, being a member of the Moro National Liberation Front’s (MNLF’s) central committee that signed the peace agreement in 1996.

Gonzalez said during the debriefing of the victims, they claimed that they heard their abductors mention "Larin-Larin."

Razon said Quidato, an intelligence officer, was sent to Jolo to work “undercover” and managed to penetrate the party of Isnaji.

Razon said Quidato had “first hand personal knowledge” of the delivery of the P5-million ransom delivered to Isnaji and the delivery of the P2-million cut to Drilon’s kidnappers.

Sahidulah, on the hand, could be called in as a witness.

The P5 million was delivered to Isnaji by Frank Oreña, brother of the broadcaster, and was delivered just before Valderama was released.

Chief Superintendent Raul Castañeda, Criminal Investigation and Detection Group chief, also noted the inconsistencies in Isnaji’s statements.

Castañeda cited that in a previous media interview Isnaji mentioned a P100,000 “board and lodging fee” that was given to the kidnappers in exchange for the release of Valderama, one of two cameramen of Drilon, but which the mayor never mentioned during the interrogation.

Isnaji and his son were charged with kidnap for ransom at inquest proceedings at the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group office at the PNP that began late Thursday and ended early Friday.(INQUIRER.net)

It's hard to believe that a supposedly respected mayor can be as dumb as he is.  He knows it's gonna come out in the public that the family of Ces Drilon paid 5M ransom.  And who says only 2M got the hands of the bandits?  Nah ambot na lang!  Maayo unta mag unay sila! >:(

Drilon, Legarda on Isnaji’s role: Maybe

Ces Drilon could not give a categorical reply when asked if Indanan Mayor Alvarez Isnaji had conspired with her kidnappers, as police officials have alleged.

Drilon talked to reporters before attending a thanksgiving Mass with her family, close friends and colleagues Thursday at Medical City hospital in Pasig City where she was confined.

“The mayor … maybe,” said Drilon.

Drilon said her suspicion was somehow roused after her abductors chose Isnaji as the main emissary when they previously said that they did not want a politician as a negotiator.

She said she found it confusing and asked them why they chose Isnaji.

“I said I thought no politician, but why the mayor?” she said.

Drilon said her kidnappers told her that they knew Isnaji and if he betrayed them, they could easily kill him or his family.

But she said she was somewhat torn and could not say she was convinced that Isnaji was behind her kidnapping.

“Personally, I can’t say,” she said.

“But there may be some evidence,” she said.

“Of course, we were successfully taken out from the clutches of those guys by his son, so it’s hard to judge,” Drilon said.

She also said that there were no tell-tale signs if Isnaji was a conspirator in her conversations with him. “I didn’t feel that.”

Drilon suspected that phone conversations between Isnaji and the kidnappers could have been tapped.

“So I’m hoping that [wiretaps] will stand in court if ever there was anything to suggest that he is a suspect through the conversations with the kidnappers,” Drilon said.

Mindanao State University Prof. Octavio Dinampo, who was kidnapped with Drilon, said Thursday in Zamboanga City that he could not believe that Isnaji had been arrested in connection with the abduction.

“I think it is very unfair,” Dinampo told reporters. “Mayor Isnaji and his son were just like anybody else who wanted to help us get out of there. Their becoming suspects is really unfair.”

Temojen Tulawie, provincial chair of the Consortium of Bangsamoro Society in Sulu, expressed surprise at the turn of events.

“We are appealing for the immediate and safe release of the mayor and his son,” said Tulawie.

In an interview with the Philippine Daily Inquirer on Wednesday, Sen. Loren Legarda, who played a key role in the negotiations, disclosed that “from the beginning he (Isnaji) was suspected already, that’s why he was withdrawing (as a negotiator).”

“But assuming that he’s not completely clean, he was a necessary cog,” Legarda then said.

The senator said Isnaji was “crucial” to the talks and that he “knew how to use his position.” Somebody, she said, just “needed to focus and tell him what to do.”( Inquirer Mindanao)
