Fratman in UST law student death left PH: BI

MANILA — One of the suspects in the death of University of Santo Tomas law freshman Horacio Castillo III due to alleged hazing has left the country for Taipei, Taiwan, the Bureau of Immigration (BI) confirmed on Thursday.

“A certain Ralph Caballes Trangia (DOB 10 Nov 95) departed 19 Sept 2017 on board Eva Air flight BR262 bound for Taipei,” said BI Spokesperson Antonette Mangrobang in a text message.

Trangia, along with 15 other members of the Aegis Juris fraternity, was included in the immigration lookout bulletin order (ILBO) issued by the Department of Justice (DOJ) on Wednesday.

The order has instructed all immigration officers in the country’s airports and seaports to be on the lookout to prevent attempts of the 16 “persons of interest” to leave the country.

Aside from Trangia, the other members of the fraternity included in the ILBO are: Arvin R. Balag, Mhin Wei Chan, Marc Anthony Ventura, Axel Mundo Hipe, Oliver John Audrey Onofre, Joshua Joriel Macabali, Jason Adolfo Robiños, Ranie Rafael Santiago, Danielle Hans Mattew Rodrigo, Carl Mattew Villanueva, Aeron Salientes, Marcelino Bagtang, Zimon Padro, Jose Miguel Salamat and John Paul Solano.

A person subject of an ILBO can still leave the country subject to conditions and requirements including clearance from the DOJ.

On Sunday, the law student’s body bearing bruises and burns was found dumped along a street in Balut, Tondo, Manila.
