Japanese woman needs medical test


Noriyo Ohara, the 32-year-old Japanese woman whom some agents of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) abducted from her foster family’s home in Bugallon, Pangasinan province, is now in the custody of the Bureau of Immigration.

When I tried to talk to her Wednesday, she seemed to be in a state of extreme shock.

She didn’t want to talk to members of her foster family who were with me when I went to the immigration bureau detention center in Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City.

I suspect she was either thoroughly brainwashed by her NBI captors or is suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, a situation where a kidnap or hostage victim sympathizes with one’s captors.

If I may suggest, Justice Secretary Leila de Lima, who ordered the NBI to turn over Ohara to the immigration bureau, should have her undergo a medico-legal examination to determine whether she was physically abused.

Most female kidnap victims get afflicted with the Stockholm Syndrome after they have been abused by their kidnappers.

Ohara was detained by the NBI for one month and eight days before the immigration bureau took her under its wing last Tuesday.

*  *  *

For the benefit of those who haven’t read my two previous columns, Ohara is an undocumented alien who came to the Philippines in 2009 to escape from the Yakuza that had killed her father and that was now after her.

Ohara didn’t pass through the immigration counter at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport because she was picked up planeside by an immigration employee and whisked out of the terminal building.

She was living in Pangasinan and had even assumed a Filipino name—Marife Laganas—when NBI agents arrested her on October 29.

The NBI detained her at the security management division (SMD), but she would be slipped out and taken to a safehouse in Tondo, Manila.

Ohara’s foster family raised P6 million of the P15 million the NBI agents allegedly demanded for her release.

When her foster family sensed that the NBI would not release Ohara even if they would be able to pay the remainder of the ransom, they sought my help.

*  *  *

Secretary De Lima has formed a three-member fact-finding team headed by Justice Undersecretary Francisco Baraan to look into Ohara’s reported abduction.

For starters, the team should investigate NBI Director Magtanggol Gatdula who allowed Ohara’s detention.

When Ohara was taken to the SMD office at the ground floor of the NBI headquarters, Gatdula reportedly came down from his office on the fifth floor to take a look at the Japanese woman.

What surprised many NBI oldtimers is that Gatdula allowed SMD boys to arrest Ohara when they are not line agents.

The SMD, composed of low-ranking employees of the bureau, is in charge of securing the NBI premises and guarding detainees.

Gatdula, who is a lawyer, knows that Ohara is an undocumented alien, and arresting illegal aliens is not the job of the NBI but that of the immigration bureau.

*  *  *

One of Ohara’s captors, who goes by the nickname Labsky and whose real name is Virgilio Gutierrez, is one of Gatdula’s close aides.

Labsky and Chona Espina, an NBI gofer, allegedly received P6 million from Ohara’s foster family.

When Ohara was not at the SMD office, she would be taken to Espina’s house in Tondo to sleep.

The SMD chief, Mario Garcia, and his executive officer, Jose Odellon Cabillan, have been sacked by Gatdula. The NBI chief does not have the moral authority to sack Garcia and Cabillan since they probably received orders regarding Ohara from him.

    Poor woman. Evil NBI. This cannot be allowed to happen anywhere. If it was proven that NBI truly abused its authority then Gatdula’s head should roll for this.

    They are no different from the yakuza that the poor woman was trying to escape from, probably even worse.

    NBI Director Gatdula, went down to take a look at a person they abducted/kidnapped and as a Lawyer, did not exercise his judgement to do the right thing?  Instead, Gatdula, let his subordinates held this woman for ransom?  And now, to save his own skin he fires the small fries?   Really incomprehensible that these are actions of CRIMINALS themselves and they are right inside the NBI…….Now, even the NBI, has become a headache to PNOY, in his drive to clean up corruption.  A purge of Crooks and Criminals in the Institution of the Philippines must be done first to restore full Faith, Trust and Confidence, to the Government to succeed.  Opportunities to Change for the better, is just a step away if everyone envision and will do it, instead of repeating to do the same old bad habit.

    Something is definetely rotten with this incident and it would be a huge disappointment if drama Delima let this go without an investigation. From the way this went down, you would think Gatdula was pulling the strings all along and with great motive, too…..6M pesos. It’s like the good old days once again when the people who are supposed to protect you from crime are the very same people who are perpetrators of crime.

    I think that the Japanese woman should undergo a thorough and complete physical and psychological medical examination. A person made captive by the authority not authorized by law to handle the arrest and staying for more than a month with her captors connotes suspicion. And if there are money involved in the holding of the Japanese woman, the more it must be investigated. But her capture for more than a month by the low-ranking, unauthorized NBI personnel is already a big cause for worry.

    Japanese women are mostly silent and submissive due to cultural practice and tradition. They don’t like trouble and harried life and would prefer to become obsequious just to be at peace. She’s pitiful!

    This time I agree with Mr. Tulfo.

    In psychology, Stockholm Syndrome is an apparently paradoxical psychological phenomenon wherein hostages express empathyand have positive feelings towards their captors, sometimes to the point of defending them. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness.[1][2] The FBI’s Hostage Barricade Database System shows that roughly 27% of victims show evidence of Stockholm Syndrome.[3] The Syndrome is named after the Norrmalmstorg robbery of Kreditbanken at Norrmalmstorg in Stockholm, in which bank employees were held hostage from August 23 to August 28, 1973. In this case, the victims became emotionally attached to their captors, and even defended them after they were freed from their six-day ordeal. The term “Stockholm Syndrome” was coined by thecriminologist and psychiatrist Nils Bejerot, who assisted the police during the robbery, and referred to the Syndrome in a news broadcast.[4] It was originally defined by psychiatrist Frank Ochberg to aid the management of hostage situations.[5]

Bakit nakapag-demand initially ng P100M ang mga nasa NBI? ‘Tapos binabaan nila sa kung ilang milyon na malaki rin namang pera.  Bakit magbibigay ang Japanese o ang foster family ng ganoong kalaking halaga?

     Yesterday at about 11 AM I was stopped at EDSA near Buendia by MCPO men for random smoke belching test.  I have just renewed my registration in October so I assumes my emission test will suffice.  They ran their own test and revved up my engine so it produced some dark smoke.  I was told that the car failed so I have three options.  1.  They will take one of my plate number and I will have to get it from their office in Makati CIty for a 1000 peso fine, or 2.  They can take my license and will have to do the same for 1000 pesos fine, or 3.  I can settle on the spot if I gave them 1000 pesos, but they will not give me any receipt.  This last option made me think that this is not a legitimate operation, but a fund raising for them.  It may look like it’s legitimate operation, but the last option made me think otherwise.  They really make it so hard for the drivers and I am sure a lot of them fell for it.  I chose option number 2, since it’s ok to pay a fine as long as the fine goes to the government coffers and not to corrupt offcials.  Is this the “Tuwid na Daan”?

    Mr. Tulfo. One of the most important thing you failed to do is to get the gov’t to set up a sting to capture this NBI Mafia criminals in the act. A sting operation called – ‘pay and bust.’ An opportunity to catch them on camera. Espina cannot bring Ms. Ohara to her house. It is against the rules and unprofessional conduct as member of the NBI. Be prepared Mon, seems like you interrupted Gatdulla’s operations.
    One question in my mind is that, how did the foster family got their hands into the millions of pesos paid to the NBI Mafia? What is the financial background of the Oharas in Japan for the Yakuza to kill her father? You can be creative Mon, you can start with the foster family. They must know a lot. Or perhaps you already know.
