Did anybody watch that show last week that re-enacted two kidnappings: one of a father, son and his girlfriend in Peru, the other of two English girls in India? In relation to the father & son kidnapping, how horrifying! They mistakingly got into a fake cab, where the kidnapper contacted his colleagues who ambushed the car as soon as the driver got them out of the city. The girl was threatened with rape and the father and son both had guns held to their heads and were demanded to reveal their credit card pin details.
This brings me to the case of Britney Lapthorn. Did they ever find resolution to that? It wouldn't surprise me if that was a kidnapping.
It just goes to show you how lucky and relatively "safe" we are here. Don't take it for granted! It also shows you how shabby the justice system is in some parts of the world.
Anyway, just had to share. It opens your eyes to what goes on in some parts of the world and how careful you have to be when you travel.
Anybody else got some info on kidnappings?
My female cousin recently went to Croatia where some guy took a "fancy" to her and *invited* her back to his "mums" place for dinner. Thank goodness she had the fortitude to say no...
