Abu Sayyaf Group valued at 1.4 billion pesos

If Boggie Mendoza, our Filipino anti-terror expert is to be believed, the Abu Sayyaf just amassed 1.4 billion pesos in kidnapping activities since it started the lucrative trade way back in 1992.
1.4 billion! That’s huge!
Government should take a second look and ask these bandits how did they do that? It’s the most efficient collection system I have ever seen. Government should ask for a seminar on effective collection methods used by this terror group.
By the way, terror does have its win fall. The bandits of Sulu just got richer by almost 20 million what with that Ces Drilon caper and now, here comes the bandits of Basilan, demanding the same amount of money and having their own deadlines set.
Again, the bandits of Basilan just extended their deadlines. Did they already got the ransom money?
These Abu Sayyaf Group is the most organized criminal syndicate ever to set foot here in this country. And government is helpless in fighting them.
