Additional information: 

Redendo Cain Dellosa is a leader of the Rajah Solaiman Movement (RSM) (QDe.128).

After Philippines police authorities raided RSM training camps in Anda, Pangasinan and San Clemente, Tarlac, the Philippines, in May 2002, Dellosa and five other RSM members were directed by their emir, Ahmad Islam Santos, listed as Hilarion Del Rosario Santos III (QDi.244), to hide in Mindanao. Ruben Pestano Lavilla, Jr. (QDi.247) also told them to seek refuge in Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) (QDe.001) camps so as to take advantage of an offer of help from ASG leader Khadafi Abubakar Janjalani (deceased). While inside ASG camps, Dellosa actively participated in Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) (QDe.092) training courses for the benefit of both JI and the ASG that used the participants to carry out orchestrated bombing attacks.

Dellosa led the Superferry 14 bombing on 27 February 2004 in Manila Bay that killed over 100 people and wounded hundreds more. Dellosa planted the bomb, and the ASG publicly claimed credit for the attack.

A kidnapping victim of the ASG identified Dellosa as one of the guards in charge of 10 Western tourists and 11 resort workers forcibly taken from the Sipadan resort, Sipadan Island, Malaysia, on 23 April 2000.

Dellosa, with other RSM and ASG members, received basic military training from JI instructors in Patikul, Sulu, in January and February 2003. He also provided medical supplies to ASG members. He spent several months at an ASG camp in Mindanao with Khadafi Janjalani (deceased), Radulan Sahiron (QDi.208), Jainal Antel Sali Jr. (deceased) and other ASG leaders.

In August 2002, when the ASG seized members of the Jehovah’s Witness religious sect in the Philippines and the crew of an Indonesian tanker off the coast of Jolo, Dellosa stood guard over the kidnapping victims.
