1-Aug-16

Check out Olive Group’s latest Kidnap for Ransom Insight Report. Our July 2016 issue covers global kidnapping incidents, trends and K&R hotspots at the regional, national and provincial level over the months of April, May and June of this year. With more than 58% of kidnapping cases in 2015 deriving from the Mindanao region, we bring insight to the K&R business in the Philippines and the growing risk posed by the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG).
