Palace assures rescue of Fr. Sinnott

Manila (21 October) -- Malacanang has assured the public that the government is doing its best to rescue 79-year old Irish priest Father Michael Sinnott from his abductors.

Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Lorelei Fajardo said the Philippine government is as much concerned as the international community over the abduction.

"I understand the military has cordoned off the area, where Fr. Sinnot's abductors are staying," Fajardo said.

The United States and the European Community have already expressed concern over the abduction.

Fr. Sinnot, founder of 'Hangop Kabataan Foundation' that caters to the needs of disabled children, was abducted by still unidentified armed men at the Diocese of Pagadian on Oct.11, 2009.

Fr. Sinnott is a member of the Missionaries of St. Columban and has been working in the Philippines since the early 1980s. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
