Kidney patient’s husband vouches for 1 of 4 suspects

By

MANILA, Philippines—One of the Volvo-riding men who allegedly attacked and stabbed dead a US Marine officer has a kidney dialysis center and has been helping at least six patients stricken with kidney diseases.

This was according to Raffy Baksal, a 35-year-old native of Samar province whose wife Mylene has been undergoing kidney dialysis for free at St. Vincent Dialysis Center in Barangay Pembo at Makati City.

The center, he said, is owned by Osric Cabrera, 27, one of the four men charged with murder in connection with the death of George Anikow, a US Marine.

“I cannot believe he was involved in the killing. He is a good man,” Baksal said, adding he saw Cabrera when he gave away gifts last Christmas.

He said it was two years ago when Cabrera, the son of a physician, gave his wife weekly dialysis treatments for free. “He also allowed us to stay at the center and gave us food,” Baksal said.

The suspects in the killing of Anikow reportedly belong to wealthy families.  The Volvo driver, Juan Alfonzo Abastillas, is the son of the owner of the Orient Star Transport Phil Inc. shipping freight company.

A check with the Land Transportation Office showed that the silver Volvo which the suspects were riding in and where the weapon allegedly used in the killing was recovered, was registered under that company.

    Hindi ba may kasabihan na ang isang kamay ay hindi alam ang ginagawa ng kabilang kamay? may dinadaliri ka sa isang kamay pero nagdadasal naman ang kabila! Ang kabutihan ginagawa niya ay hindi isang lisensya para maging katulong sa pagpatay sa isang tao! Harapin niya ang batas dahil nagkasala siya! At dito masusubukan ang pagkakaibigan ng mga ito dahil lumalabas na isa lang ang sumaksak at sigurado mag-uumpisahan na magturuan tulad ng sinabi ng isang ama ng suspect na bakit murder ang ikinaso sa anak gayun di naman siya ang nanaksak! At sinabi din pala ng ama na ito na bakit sisirain ang kinabukasan ng anak niya sa kaso ng murder? hello daddy! yung pinatay hindi ba nasira na at yung pamilya iniwan hindi ba mas sira?

    Lagyan ng tingga ang ulo ng bawat isa sa apat na unggoy na yan. Problema kasi mura lang ang hustisya sa Pinas, madali lang mabili ang batas.

    mr baksal, libre nga ng dialysis ang asawa mo pero malay mo, sa ibang pasyente naman sinisingil ang gasto sa iyong asawa.

    A good man would PREVENT his companion having a knife, from using it!  He will pacify his companion/s, telling him/them to just let it go because it was only a tap on the Volvo, nothing was destroyed!  A good man will not help his companion/s hit someone, neither with a fist nor with a bladed weapon!  Although lying low, a good man will STAND OUT among a group or a crowd, for keeping his peace!

    Stand out and KEEP THE PEACE Kabayan !!  The country needs MORE of YOU to KEEP the PEACE!

    Forward Philippines !!!

    hindi rin ako maniniwala sa kwentong ito , nakita sa apat na may tatlong panaksak na dala dala, mabait? eh mukhang mga handang pumatay ang mga iyan, ikaw ba kaibigan mo ang mga laruan  ay baril , panaksak, droga , kung may katinuan ka lumayo kana.  Ngayon , meron karin bang pagtitimpi, pagsabihan mo barkada mo kung ng mangugulpi, pare, maliit na bagay lang yan pwede naman nating pasensyahan,  eh kinuyog nga yung lasing eh, di ba ang lasing kung minsan wala ito sa wisyo kaya siguro malakas ang loob na i tap yung volvo, kung baga parang biro lang to gain friends and surely he was smiling  when he did it basing on the nature of his work. nakakatakot yang grupo na yan , swerte lang ni George at siya  naatiyempuhan, sabi ng guard hinabol panga nung umiwas yung kawawang tao,  mabait? me killer instinct yan.

    tama lang na managot sila sa ginawa nila, paano ang familya na sinira nila sa walang kakwenta kwentang tapping of a volvo, my condolence to the family of George Anikow.
