The evidence against the Isnajis

RANSOM. Indanan Mayor Alvarez Isnaji’s son, Haider, and Sulu Vice Governor Lady Ann Sahidula, look at the ransom money given by the family of TV reporter Ces Drilon to her captors in exchange for her release, along with her crew, and their guide.

Seated in a yellow shirt and vest is the elder Isnaji. The photo is among the pieces of evidence presented by PNP Chief Avelino Razon to media Friday as proof of their claim that the Isnajis were accomplices of the kidnappers, identified as alleged members of the Abu Sayyaf. Razon also claims that Mayor Isnaji pocketed P3 million of the P5 million ransom.

No less than MNLF Chair Nur Misuari confirmed that the nickname "latin-larin", oftenly referred to by the kidnappers as "boss", was the nickname of Mayor Alvarez Isnaji.(INQUIRER.net/Thea Alberto)

Counting ransom money is not exactly a smoking gun evidence nor being called a big boss as even Gonzales stated that Isnaji's stature and influence is similar to Misuari.
