MANILA, July 20 –With the release of his 22-year old son, Commission on Elections (Comelec) Commissioner Elias Yusoph said that those behind the abduction will be punished by the law of the people and by God.

He added that the release of Nuraldin would also pave the way for the investigation of the case.

“I am expecting that the release of my son would be the beginning of the investigation that whoever is liable, whoever the perpetrators are of this barbarous act, should suffer the curse of God and the punishment. They deserve it and they deserve the punishment of God and they deserve not to live in this world. They are menace to the society,” Yusoph said.

The poll body official expressed gratitude to those who helped and pray for their family during the time when the younger Yusoph was in the hands of his abductors.

“We have been so patient over the 29 days. I am grateful to those who offered prayers for the safe release of my son, my friends, Muslims and Christians, God has accepted our prayers. They have released my son without any hassle, without any ransom…” he said.

Yusoph is hoping that the investigation on his son’s case should continue to save the people in the province of Lanao so that they will feel the sanctity of peace and tranquility.

“There is robbery, kidnapping but no case has been filed. I don’t know but some are conniving with criminals, some are cuddling with these people. This has to be answered by the authorities themselves,” he noted

With this, he appealed to abductors of his son to stop this kind of criminal activities.

“You will not succeed, you will be cursed by God perpetually, my heart is filled with forgiveness. I can forgive but the government cannot forgive.

"Authorities can’t compromise criminal acts so we must not compromise criminal activities so we must pursue it, as i have said, in order to put an end to this kind of activities, which is unislamic, This is not the teaching of the prophet Muhammad, let the law take its course,” he said.

He added, “I hope the new administration would take a look on the leadership so that they series of kidnappings and crimes would be put to rest.”

Yusoph fetched his son at the airport Tuesday afternoon and went straight to their home in Quezon City.

On Monday afternoon, Nuraldin was released by his captors after almost a month in captivity. He was snatched inside a mosque in Marawi City by heavily armed men. (PNA) LOR/FGP/utb
