Joint operatives of the International Police (Interpol), Kalibo Philippine National Police, Aklan Provincial Police Office (APPO) and the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) here arrested a 44-year-old Norwegian national for allegedly abducting a minor in his country.

Police Officer 2 Nida Gregas, deputy public information officer of the APPO, said the Interpol was able to trace the whereabouts of the suspect after the 15-year-old victim (Daughter) posted her whereabouts at her facebook page.

“The complainant on this case was the mother of the victim who reported that her daughter had gone missing in Norway. The victim had been reported missing for several years already,” Gregas said.

Under the Philippine law, the identity of the suspect could not be revealed in accordance with the law on the abuse against children.

The suspect claimed that the victim is her daughter and that he and the victim’s mother have quarreled as to who will take custody of the daughter. The suspect then decided to hide the victim at their residence in Andagao Village, Kalibo, Aklan where they were found.

Currently, the police is awaiting for the representative of the Norway Embassy for the turnover of the suspect and the victim.
