I received an email that is really disturbing. Yes, I've heard of this already and was quite alarmed in regards to the sophistication of the crime. Well, the manner that they do it is still crude, but to have Doctors readily available to check the just kidnapped children to see if they are fit, is no handicraft of a poverty-stricken criminal either. To have the luxury of being able to afford to even think and implement such scheme is surely an indication of a higher level of understanding of the purpose of the crime. It is not a crime driven by poverty but of greed, a deed to answer, not the call of a churning stomach but of the echo of a not yet-brimming-bank-account.

Opinions aside, I heard of the news of one abducted child who was let loose because the doctor inside the van where she was held hostage declared that she has a heart condition. It's scary, how children are not only taken foricbly but rather harvested like one would in a farm but this time not for food but for organs to be sold in black markets. The level of sophistication in this type of crime is almost unbelievable, I thought, the Philippines being a third world country, I thought we will initially only have to worry about crimes resulting from's either I was wrong or that we are already pass the initial stage (whatever that means)...

Who would thought that this can happen? but it is happening and it is scary.It is one thing to sell drugs, but it's abominable to kill helpless children for profit.

This serves as a warning for parents to be diligent in keeping their children safe.

World Kidnapping in Southern Luzon ,
Victim's Internal Organs Missing By Jean Stuart Marc h 09, 2008

Kidnapping is rampant nowadays. Kidnappers usually asked ransom
money from the parents of their victims. But lately, I was disturbed of
the news about the kidnap victims whose internal organs were missing
after they were found. In Ibaan, Batangas four children were abducted.
One of them was found with the pair of eyes missing and with Php 30,000
pesos on his/her mouth. Three were found with missing internal organs.
There was also report in Tanauan, Batangas with a missing heart and Php
8,000 pesos on the hole of the victim's chest. It's really creepy.

Lately, there have been reports that the kidnappings is not only
happening in Batangas. There were also similar incidents in Cavite and
Laguna. Last Wednesday, Marc h 5, my friend told me that there was a
third year high school student (from a school in San Pedro, Laguna) was
abducted on her way home. I still haven't heard about what happened to
the victim. I heard that a syndicate is behind this kidnapping and they
are selling the organs to the black market.

Text messages and email messages has been circulating saying
that a white van with plate no. VMM 507 is said to be the kidnappers
van. In our place the cartographic sketch of the kidnapper and the plate
no. of the vehicle used by the kidnapper were posted everywhere.
Residents in our area in Laguna were already afraid. Students going to
school were now accompanied by their parents and yayas. It has been
reported that the kidnappers where luring children going to and from

Our school management even released a letter to parents to watch
for their children when going to school and while playing. Kindly
include them in your prayer.

Thanks a lot!

@ness - oo nga eh. ang balita balita - they are scouring thid world countires to harvest organs to sell sa first world countries dahil may shortage daw doon... not sure if this is accurate though...tapos pati mga teenagers daw kinukuha na, and regardless kung meron na ang mga parents or not, hinahablot na daw...
