Faeldon defended on Internet

MANILA, Philippines -- Fugitive Marine Captain Nicanor Faeldon is "armed and dangerous," but not in the way authorities have described him, a statement posted on his website said.

The statement http://www.pilipino.org.ph, however, did not say anything about the condition and whereabouts of Faeldon, whom authorities said escaped following the siege last November 29on the Manila Peninsula Hotel by a group of soldiers and civilians, led by Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.

Belying the police's warning that Faeldon, an explosives expert, was "armed and dangerous," the statement said the officer "never used his skills against civilians."

"Those of us who know him agree. Captain Faeldon is armed. He is armed with the fire of one who loves his country and is ready to suffer for it," the statement said.

"He is dangerous. He has made public his lack of desire for public office and his repudiation of any privileges of government should his vision for this country succeed," it said.

"He has refused to deal or bargain with the dubious authorities who dispense justice like favors to people with the right price," it said.

The statement also criticized the police for distributing wanted posters of the Marine officer.

Reached for comment, Faeldon's lawyer, Trixie Angeles, said there was no way of confirming whether it was Faeldon himself who had posted the statement on his website.

"But if anything appears there, and it is not taken down, we assume that it is with his consent," Angeles said in a phone interview.

Angeles, who writes a column for the Pilipino website, said Faeldon was capable of accessing the site.

"We can only assume that this was uploaded by the webmaster or somebody else," she added.

The statement ended with the line: "The PNP is correct. Captain Nicanor Faeldon is a wanted man. His family, friends, and members of his organization want him back, wherever he is."
