“The suspect was said to have contacted someone to help her organise a criminal gang that would execute the kidnapping. The suspect has confessed to the crime. She would be charged to court as soon as the command completes its investigation to serve as a deterrent to others,” the CP said.

Santos, while speaking to reporters after her parade, confessed to the crime, begging for forgiveness and promising not to indulge in such an act again.
