THE City Prosecutor’s Office has filed a criminal case against a 42-year-old woman who was implicated in the recent kidnapping of a child in an east coast village in Zamboanga City.

Inspector Dahlan Samuddin, Police Regional Office-Zamboanga Peninsula information officer, identified the respondent as Anjiemar Julhassan, also known as Annura Julhasan.

Samuddin said Julhassan was charged before the Regional Trial Court Branch 15 on Tuesday for kidnapping a one-year-old child in the village of Talon-Talon. No bail has been recommended.

The accused was transferred to the Zamboanga City Reformatory Center on Thursday following the issuance of the commitment order by the court.

Zamboanga City Police Director Angelito Casimiro earlier said that Julhasan was arrested on May 31 when she decided to return the child.

He said the suspect’s identity was uncovered through video captured by a closed-circuit television camera when she took the victim.
