Ces Drilon Free At Last

Ces DrilonLast night, I was checking the latest development of the Sulu Crisis on different media websites. I was happy to read that the release of ABS-CBN broadcast journalist Ces Drilon and company was on its course. Just this morning, I was happy to check on ABS-CBN news website that Ces Drilon and company were freed last night around 11 P.M. Her release was through the efforts of Senator Loren Legarda, Indanan Mayor Alvarez Isnaji, Governor Lady Ann Sahidullah, Interior and Local Government Secretary Ronaldo Puno, National Police chief Avelino Razon Jr and other police and marine officials.

I’m glad our prayers were answered that the three weren’t harmed and they are healthy. I just hope the rumors I keep on hearing that Ces Drilon was raped by her captors aren’t true. According to some, most of the women captives were raped such as Arlyn Dela Cruz, Gracia Burnham and even Susan Enriquez. Is that true?

The families of Ces Drilon and Jimmy Encarnacion reunited two hours after they boarded the military chopper to Zamboanga City. Ces Drilon and Jimmy Encarnacion will return to Manila today.

That ordeal Ces and her team should serve as a reminder to journalists that they should coordinate with the authorities before going through any story, particularly in Mindanao.
