Brutal gang rape case of a Filipina Nurse in Maguindanao cries justice

· Filed Under Featured Articles, In the news 

Here is another rape case of one our Filipina nurses in Mindanao.  This is a very disturbing story indeed as 10 men are involved in the gang rape.  This week, hundreds of government health workers, led by Maguindanao’s provincial health officer, Dr. Tahir Sulaik, staged an indignation rally in Cotabato City where they condemned the gang rape of a Filipina nurse and urged authorities to investigate the case.

Sulaik said they do not want a whitewash of the case because some of the suspects are allegedly scions of rich and influential families in Maguindanao.

Some reports claimed that before the incident, Florence (not her real name), the gang rape victim) was seen with the suspects inside a videoke bar in Barangay Timanan, just few meters away from a police outpost.  Florence was found naked and unconscious on Sunday morning by some of the bystanders in a corn field, also in Barangay Timanan.
“Contrary to reports, Florence is not alcoholic. She does not smoke. We’ve been friends for so long and I’ve not seen her drink or smoke, especially in public places,” said a coworker who requested anonymity.   “I resent these people from casting aspersions on my friend. It’s rude… it’s not fair. We cry for justice here,” said another friend.

Meanwhile, the police have arrested on Tuesday six of the 10 suspects who abducted and raped Florence who is a 21-year old government nurse in South Upi town in Maguindanao province.  The authorities also expressed hope that the gang rape victim would soon recover so that she could name the others involved in the crime.

We hope and pray for the speedy recovery of one of our Filipina nurses.
