Wife of abducted Korean trader offers P100,000 reward

THE wife of the South Korean businessman abducted in Pampanga last October has offered P100,000 reward to any person who can help locate her husband.

In a press conference held at the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Thursday, Choi Kyung-jin, the wife of Jee Ick-joo, through her interpreter, said they will give a cash reward to anyone who can give information on the whereabouts of her husband.

Ick-joo, 53, was kidnapped on October 18, along with his house helper Marisa Dawis by eight individuals.

The first two abductors were allowed to enter the residence of Ick-joo at Arayat street in Angeles City, Pampanga after they introduced themselves as police officers conducting anti-drug activities.

Dawis, the main witness in the case, was freed by the abductors the following day.

On October 31, Choi gave the kidnappers P5 million in a fast food near their residence without coordination with the authorities, but still, her husband was not freed.

Choi then asked the help of NBI and Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II to expedite proceedings on the cases filed against the suspects and issue an arrest order against them immediately. (Sunnex)
