MANILA, Philippines – Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ronald “Bato”dela Rosa said they will ask Interpol’s help in tracking down Ralph Caballes Trangia; a suspect in the hazing death of UST law freshman Horacio Castillo III and who is believed to have fled to Taiwan.
“We will do that. Sana nasa Taiwan pa siya ngayon, hindi pa naglipat sa ibang bansa [We hope he’s still in Taiwan now, and he hasn’t travelled to another country],” he told GMA News.
Dela Rosa also said they will seek to have Trangia’s passport cancelled so he could be deported back to the Philippines.
“Ipapa-cancel namin ‘yung kanyang passport para magiging undocumented alien na siya doon sa Taiwan and Taiwan authorities will be forced to deliver him back to the Philippines,” he said..
[We will have his passport cancelled so he will become an undocumented alien there in Taiwan and the authorities there will be forced to deliver him back to the Philippines.]
As for Trangia’s other brods in Aegis Juris, Dela Rosa urged those responsible for Castillo’s death to give themselves up.
“Sana mag-surrender na kayo, makonsensiya naman kayo. Alam ko na hindi kayo masasamang tao, hindi kayo kriminal. Siguro nadala lang kayo sa bugso ng damdamin o challenge of manhood sa fraternity. Nachallenge lang kayo kaya nagawa n’yo ‘yun,” he said.
[I hope you will be conscience-stricken and surrender. I know you’re not bad people, you’re not criminals. Maybe you got caught up in your passion or challenge of manhood in your fraternity. You were challenged so you committed those acts.]
