Speedboats deployed to deter kidnappings

By PNA | Jul. 15, 2013 at 12:01am
The military’s Task Force Zamboanga has deployed Friday its speedboats to deter abduction incidence in this city.

TFZ commander Col. Andrelino Colina said the speedboats of the 17th Special Forces Company under his command will be deployed at sea 24 hours a day.

A Condor Speedboat will serve as the mother boat or command center for the smaller speedboats and motorized bancas that will be patrolling the seas, both the eastern and western areas.

The task force will maintain a detachment in Barangay Lower Calarian, home port and base of the Naval Forces Western Mindanao where the troops manning the speedboats can replenish.

Colina said the deployment of the speedboats will facilitate prompt pursuit of kidnappers fleeing bringing victims from this city.

He said the two recent abduction cases could have been prevented if there were lawmen patrolling the sea lanes of the city.

The victims include a university employee and a couple engaged in marine products business.

Colina said the deployment of sea crafts will strengthen the security of the city.
