Police rescue 2 Canadians from kidnappers in Dominican Republic
DominicanToday.com - Police agents rescued two Canadians early Thursday, just hours after several men had kidnapped them in Sosua, Puerto Plata, demanding a 15,000 dollar ransom, diariolibre.com reports.


The Police said the foreigners Imad Ibrahim, 29, and Nicholas Laquis, 32, were rescued after an aborted delivery of the ransom money, when one of the victims companied by one of the kidnappers in a Suzuki SUV appeared at a casino of the zone in search of the cash.

The visit allowed the agents to rescue Ibrahim and arrest Raffy Matos Silverio, which in turn led to the surrender of his accomplices and to the eventual release of Laquis, who was being held as "insurance" in the El Batey sector.

The Police arrested Ricardo Chinden (Ricky) and pursue as armed and dangerous Luis "El Bárbaro" and "Chiqui," for the alleged kidnap at Pedro Clisante street and of threatening to kill the foreigners.
