Kidnap and Threat Extortion in their various forms can have devastating effects, not only on the victims, but also on a victims’ family, company or organisation, and on others connected to the crisis incident. They can lead to weeks or months of stressful and exhausting negotiations. An ill-considered kidnap or extortion response could have a detrimental effect on the victim’s well-being, increase the risk to other potential targets, and threaten the viability of, or have a negative reputational impact on, a family, company or organisation.
