SIBLINGS Marco and Michele Gumabao are standing behind their father, former actor Dennis Roldan, after the former politician was sentenced to life imprisonment for the kidnapping of a Filipino-Chinese boy in 2005.

The Gumabaos took to micro-blogging site, Twitter, to articulate their support to the 53-year-old.

Michele tweeted: "Your strength and love for God is what amazes me Papa. I love you and I am proud of you! We will never stop fighting by your side. Trust God!"

Marco posted: "All in God's plan".

On Tuesday, a Pasig City Regional Trial Court judge convicted Roldan, Mitchell Gumabao in real life, and two others for the kidnapping of three-year-old boy Kenshin Yu in Cubao, Quezon City, in 2005.

A former Quezon City representative, Roldan personally appeared in court and was immediately brought to New Bilibid Prison in Muntinlupa City after the verdict was read. His kids were not present during the hearing.

Orlando Salatandre Jr., Roldan's legal counsel, said they will appeal the Pasig RTC ruling before the Court of Appeals. (Sunnex)
