A Taiwanese man was rescued from a kidnap-for-ransom group in a hotel in Parañaque City Tuesday night, police said.

Southern Police District Director Tomas Apolinario said the suspects, who also hail from Taiwan, beat up and detained the victim after they abducted him last January 7 at a casino.

The three Taiwanese suspects allegedly abducted the victim over a supposed P100,000 gambling debt and demanded ransom for his release, police said.

Police are investigating whether the suspects are part of a bigger casino lending operation targeting Taiwanese nationals gambling in local casinos.
