3 suspected extortionists arrested in Bataan

BALANGA CITY, Bataan — Three suspected members of an alleged extortion group were arrested
the other day by the Provincial Intelligence Bureau led by Chief Inspector Cesar M. Lumiwes
after they were caught in the act of extorting money from a lady trader inside a fast food
annex, here. Sr. Supt. Manuel R. Gaerlan, Bataan police director, identified the suspects
as Eduardo dela Cruz, 58, of Talisay, here; Gil Sumandal, 38, of Pagalanggang, Dinalupihan
town; and Ramon Arellano, 49, of Tenejero, Balanga. Gaerlan said the suspects were arrested
one at a time based on the complaint of Emelita Funilas Aquino, sister of village chieftain
Ludy Funilas, both of Barangay Lucanin, Mariveles, Bataan, whom the group allegedly threatened
to kill since last Feb. 15 through text messages to extort money. Gaerlan said that on the
afternoon of Feb. 26, Aquino sought police assistance for the possible entrapment and arrest
of the suspects that continuously communicated. \”With this development, the operating team
set-up an entrapment operation and used ‘mark money’ amounting to RR50,000 which is equivalent
to the amount being demanded by the suspects,\” said Gaerlan. (Mar Supnad)

Now, what\’s my involvement in the story above? BIG! One of the suspected extortionist is my FATHER. I will not talk about the case because I don\’t want to preempt the case but I will just give my piece about this issue.

1. My father does not need to resort to extortion to have some money. My brother and I provide for their needs.
2. One of the policemen remarked that my father was involved in the extortion activity because my mother is sick. Bullshit! How can that be when me and my brother provide for her medical needs? Eh deh sana di na lang kami nagpakakuba sa trabaho kung may easy money naman. I am deeply offended by this accusation. Mr. Policeman, I\’ve relayed this message to two of your colleagues that your theory is not fair. Nabubuhay kami ng marangal sa marangal na hanapbuhay.
3. The complainant Emelita Funilas Aquino is Kapitan Ludy\’s sister. Kapitan Ludy was a frequent visitor in our home. Kapitan, why on earth would you involve my father in such a difficult situation? How can you implicate someone who\’s not into illegal activities? If my father is into illegal activities, he should have done it years back when our life was much harder and when he was still younger.

I know that just like any ordinary person, some people love my father and some people hate him. But to resort to this whole drama just because of hatred is difficult for me to understand.

Manila Bulletin, I understand that your report was done last Friday when a \”battalion\” of policemen arrived at our home to arrest my father. (Gil and Ramon were arrested in Jollibee San Jose) I would like to correct that the case was not robbery/extortion or extortion but GRAVE THREAT.

As of this writing, my father is out on bail. (Miel and I raised the fund. Baka isipin na naman na may maimpluwensyang taong tumulong. Leche!)Friends and relatives came to our home to give moral support. Maraming salamat po at sabay-sabay naman tayong manalangin para maipalabas ang katotohanan.

    kami ang nabubuhay ng maayos at ginulo ninyo alam ng diyos kung sino ang tama


    • Really? There are always two sides of the story. Bullshit ako? If that’s what you moron think, then fine!
      Thanks for visiting my blog. You just made my day! You know, the funny thing is I made this article almost two years ago in the hope that at least one relative of Ludy and/or Emelita can find it. How very very funny when a certain son of Emelita found this after two years! Where were you all those times? Living under a rock? Hahaha!

      Leomel Funilas Aquino, you have ALL the right to say BULLSHIT to me, wala akong pakialam. Pwede rin kitang murahin sampu ng yong angkan pero hindi ako bababa sa level nyo! You can bash me, create a blog to air all your rants eh ano naman ang pakialam ko?


    • Don’t involve your god here, that’s blasphemy in its mildest form.
      Did I say anything bad against Emely, your mother? Read the article again.
      Before cursing or saying bad words against a person, KNOW where that person is coming from. This is a free lesson on values education. I never even badmouthed Ludy and at the end of the article I even asked for prayers so that the truth would come out.


  3. alam ko pong lalabas ang katotohanan at alam ko din pong bawat salitang ibinigay nna aking ina sa kinauukulan ay pawang katotohanan at sana nga ay matuldukan na ang gulong ito gusto po namin ng kapayapaan at sana din po ay huwag po ninyo akong alisan ng karapatan na ipagtanggol ang aking magulang

    living under the rock what kind of that funny word you say to me

    ngayon lang po ako nakialam

    at ano pong tingin ninyo sa angkan namin mababa oo mataas ka pero ang nasa itaas pag bumagsak malakas
