Monday's kidnapping of Australian Man in Ipil 2 hours north of Zamboanga City has put me on the back foot a bit.

Warren Rodwell age 53 seems to be like a lot of us here on this board.

He met his wife on the internet, went to Zamboanga City to meet her. Was married in June and started a small business for his wife (store) in Ipil just north of Zamboanga City. Lives there.

This meets the profile of how many foreigners except for one detail....... He lived on the Zamboanga Peninsula. regards

This is how quick it took them to recognize and kidnap this Australian..

from the sunstar. Less then 6 weeks.

"Rodwell is from Sydney, Australia. He married Miraflor Gutang, a native of Naga, Zamboanga Sibugay, in June 2011. The couple settled in Ipil town since October this year." regards

The police say that this couple had been fighting before he disappeared.. In the past five years I have lost 3 personal friends who have been killed (via paid assassin’s) by their wives.. They all had some things in common.. None of them thought that they were in any danger.. They never saw it coming, the police had suspects in the killings and asked the women to allow them to prosecute but the widows refused to sign a complaint that would convict the killers. In the Philippines murder is not a crime against the state a person needs to sign a complaint against the accused before they can be prosecuted no matter how strong the evidence.

Jester, what you are saying is true.. and this post could answer a lot of questions that newbies ask when first on this board. Gene has been warning about this for a long time.

It is a not what to do.. The last picture of his house shows he has left himself open to any intruders..regards


From the Mindanao Examiner

"Rodwell has married a Filipina, Miraflor Gutang, 27, in June this year after an “Internet love affair.”

“There have been living here the past two months. They are a simple couple. Warren is just a simple man. They are not really wealthy or rich,” he said.

Gutang has reportedly moved out of Ipil town and is living with her family in Naga after a fight with Rodwell last month.

Rodwell’s neighbors had complained also about the foreigner’s arrogance, according to a security official who read a military background report on the foreigner who once served in the Australian army.

“A background investigation by the military showed that Rodwell is not popular among his neighbors. He is perceived as arrogant,” the official said."

Kermit..

Guys that take an attitude to the Phils dont usually last long. They are sorted out after the Redhorse kicks in..

Seems like you were lucky when the so called cops turned up at your house.. Are u saying that was in Zamboanga City.

I will be in Zamboanga City again from late Dec. through to the 20th Jan. regards
