A video showing the 4 kidnapped victims allegedly by the Abu Sayaff Group has surfaced on YouTube recently. The three kidnapped victims except the Filipina spoke one after the other pleading for help from their governments.
The video was uploaded on YouTube on October 13, 2015 by a user that goes by the handle Darthodieus. It is not known if the uploader is connected with the bandits. This video originally surfaced on the Facebook Group Davao City’s Public Safety and Security CC /911/TMC Support Group.
After the three kidnapped foreigners made the appeal on video, one of the bandits reads out their message addressed to the authorities regarding the release of the kidnapped victims. The bandits want the authorities to stop the military operations and the artillery attacks toward the position of the bandits. If the demands are met, then that is the time negotiation will commence.
The three foreigners kidnapped by the bandits are Canadians John Ridsdel & Robert Hall, Norweigan Kjartan Sekkingstad, the owner of Oceanview Marina and Teresita Flor, the Filipina girlfriend of Robert Hall.
