Manila Bus Hostage Crisis - In Hong Kong Taken of Philippines - Filipino Police Bangko Bus Hostage Crisis? - Watch China
The Manila hostage crisis occurred when a dismissed Philippine National Police officer took over a tour bus in Rizal Park, Manila, Philippines on August 23, 2010. Disgruntled former senior inspector Rolando Mendoza, from the Manila Police District (MPD) hijacked a tour bus carrying 25 people (20 tourists and also a tour guide, all from Hong Kong, and four Filipinos) in an attempt to get his job back. He said that he was summarily dismissed without the opportunity to properly defend himself, and that all he wanted was a fair hearing. After about ten hours into the siege, the Filipino bus driver was able to get out of the bus by falling through the driver's bus window and was shown on television saying "patay na lahat (everyone is dead)" before being whisked away by police. The ensuing rescue assault mounted by the MPD and resulting shoot-out was watched by millions on live television news and took around 90 minutes. At the end, eight of the hostages and Mendoza were dead and nine other people were injured. The Hong Kong Government soon after issued a top-level "black" travel alert for the Philippines. The assault on the tour bus to rescue the hostages was widely regarded by pundits as "bungled" and "incompetent"; the Philippine government also admitted that errors had been made and promised a thorough investigation, which they would report to the People's Republic of China and Hong Kong SAR governments.
Back in August a hostage situation turned deadly in the Philippines. Eight tourists from Hong Kong lost their lives when their bus was hijacked. Now, the president of the Philippines says rescue workers will face administrative sanctions rather than criminal charges... for their poor handling of the crisis. Eight tourists visiting the Philippines from Hong Kong were killed when police stormed this hijacked bus in August. The poorly organized rescue attempt, which lasted more than ten hours, sparked outrage and criticism, particularly in Hong Kong. Philippine President Benigno Aquino said Monday that Manila city Mayor Alfred Lim and four police officers would face administrative sanctions, rather than criminal charges over the incident. [Benigno Aquina III, Philiipine President]: "I am ordering that the following actions be taken: Refer to the NAPOLCOM, National Police Commission, the filing of appropriate charges against P/Supt. Rodolfo Magtibay for gross incompetence and serious neglect of duty (under Sec. 2, Rule 21 of the PNP Uniform Rules); Refer to the NAPOLCOM the filing of appropriate charges against Police Director Leocadio Santiago Jr. for less grave neglect of duty (under Sec. 2, Rule 21 of the PNP Uniform Rules); Refer to the NAPOLCOM the filing of appropriate charges against P/Supt. Orlando Yebra for neglect of duty (under Sec. 2, Rule 21 of the PNP Uniform Rules)." He also said the government was taking steps to improve its ability to respond to future crises ...
