President Duterte wants 'Public Hanging' of Policewoman Linked to Abu Sayyaf: 'She's a traitor!'

President Rodrigo Duterte said last Saturday that Police Woman Superintendent Maria Christina Nobleza who allegedly had an affair with a suspected Abu Sayyaf member should be sentenced to death via public hanging for conspiring with the terrorist group and receiving funds from the Islamic State.

Nobleza was earlier arrested by the authorities in Bohol for attempting to help suspected Abu Sayyaf member escape, who turned out to be her lover. Both are now detained at Camp Crame facing criminal charges.
The President said they have looked into the remittance record of Nobleza and it clearly showed that the latter received huge amount of money from abroad used to finance the terror activity of the rebel group.

“Tinignan namin ‘yung mga remittances. Ang palagi nakalabas na pangalan doon ‘yung babae, si Nobleza. ‘Yung pulis na pinapadalhan siya ng isang grupo doon na part of the terror groups fighting in the Middle East. She is really the lady that is a traitor to her country,” Duterte said in a press conference in Cagayan de Oro City.

“Yan ang dapat na, if there were  then things go out of hand, dapat bitayin at public hanging siya. And I will not hesitate to do it if it comes to that. I will hang every traitor dito sa gobyerno,” he added.

“When I was reviewing the remittances of the Western Union, so ‘yung si Nobleza na ‘yun, siguro sa isang page naano, tatlong beses na… Maraming pera ‘yan. Maraming pera ‘yang si Nobleza. Makakakita ‘yan ng asawa ‘yan diyan sa loob. Mayaman ‘yung asawa niya. Maraming pera ‘yun,” he further said.

Nobleza is a former deputy chief of the PNP Crime Laboratory in Region 11 in Davao city.
