MANILA, Philippines – The mothers of missing University of the Philippines students Karen Empeño and Sherlyn Cadapan will oppose in court the transfer of 2 military officers from the Bulacan provincial jail to Fort Bonifacio.
The court had allowed the transfer of Lt. Col. Delipe Anotado and Staff Sgt. Edgardo Osorio due to security threats.
They are accused of kidnapping the 2 students in 2006.
The complainants’ lawyer, Ed Olalia, said they were not informed of the transfer.
