Restaurant staff recalled seeing two unidentified men sitting near Saccardi’s group on Monday night

Saccardi’s bag contained a Toshiba laptop, three pieces of external hard drive, a Panasonic Cumix Camera, two cell phones, three credit cards, her passport and ID, and cash worth 860 euros (P46,100.39) and P5,000, according to the police report.

    Welcome to the Philippines.  At least nakarating siya ng makati bago manakawan.  Ang iba nga sa airport Customs pa lang nahoholdup na e

    Magtataka pa ba tayo e sa senado nga milyon milyong pera ng Pilipino mismo ang ninanakaw.  Wait, do they not all belong to GALING PINOY Party List? Galing magnakaw e.

    It is more fun in the Philippines for tourists, pati buhay nila napapahamak. Marami namang ibang bansa sa Asia na mas safe mga tourists keysa sa Pilipinas. Kung hindi nahohostage at napapatay eh ninanakawan ng mga kawatan, lalo na mga pulis patola na gumagawa ng mga rob out.

    Pero mas maganda sa mga salisi gang salvage na lang pag nahuhuli sila, wag na buhayin mga yan dahil walang karapatan mabuhay mga animal na yan, Sana mabasa nila to para matauhan, este mahayopan sila.

    There should be a CCTV camera in a place like this. The restaurant should release the video to the public so they can help in getting the criminals. If the restaurant doesn’t have a CCTV installed, then its only concern is profit.
