Macapagal links kidnappings to destabilization plots

PRESIDENT Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on Monday linked the recent string of kidnappings to destabilization plots against her government.

"There could be a destabilization aspect in these events and we are monitoring it closely," Ms Macapagal said in a statement released by Malacaņang.

"We have a comprehensive plan of action tackling all fronts and it is unfortunate that we have a spate of kidnappings even while we are raking gains in the anti-drug campaign," Ms Macapagal said, as she vowed to bring the abductors and killers of Chinese-Filipina Betti Chua Sy to justice.

"We need most of all the support and the cooperation of the community to maintain a high level of public safety," Ms Macapagal said.

Sy's body was found wrapped in a black garbage bag last Tuesday, a day after she was reported kidnapped.

Authorities have arrested some suspects in Sy's abduction.

Four days later, a group of armed men kidnapped a 10-year old Chinese-Filipina who was on her way to school in Manila. Neither she nor her abductors have been found
