QUEZON CITY, Philippines – Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG) Director Roel Obusan will leave for Taiwan this week to process the immediate deportation of former Ozamis City councilor Ricardo “Ardot” Parojinog.

He will be accompanied by PNP-Drug Enforcement Group Director Albert Ferro.

Suspects of “rent-tagay” modus operandi

QUEZON CITY, Philippines – Authorities arrested four individuals involved in a carnapping “rent-tangay” modus operandi in Quezon City.
PSSupt. Eleazar Matta of the Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG) said the entrapment operation against the suspects were launched Sunday (July 15) after a victim sought help from police over his stolen vehicle.
Matta, citing the victim’s account, said a tipster told the victim that his (victim) vehicle was being traded through a buy-and-sell scheme.
After the authorities verified that the vehicle was indeed of the victim, they launched the operation with the victim himself acting as poser-buyer.
The police first arrested the alleged leader of the group identified as Sherwin Reyes inside a mall along Quezon Avenue on the act of receiving the marked money. During the interrogation, Reyes admitted to having a financier in the scheme.
Hours later, Reyes’ companions Nikko Perlas, Edwin Acosta Domingo and Edwin Garduque Domingo, who was said to be the group’s financier, were arrested at a gasoline station in Unang Sigaw, Balintawak in Quezon City.
Garduque-Domingo admitted of having stolen vehicles in his rent-a-car shop where authorities identified four stolen sports utility vehicles.
The four suspects are now facing charges of estafa and carnapping. – Lea Ylagan / Marje Pelayo

QUEZON CITY, Philippines – Arrested former Ozamis City councilor Ricardo “Ardot” Parojinog is requesting that his case be handled by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).

On Thursday, June 14, Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Director General Oscar Albayalde confirmed Ardot’s request through a letter he sent to the Department of Justice (DOJ).

However, Albayalde said the decision to transfer Ardot’s cases to the NBI is really up to the DO, although he added that the PNP is ready to follow whatever the Court orders.

Meanwhile, Albayalde admitted that they have been receiving only limited information about Parojinog who is now detained in Taiwan for illegal entry. Since he is under the custody of Taiwan authorities, the Chief of Police said he is not allowed by Taiwan prosecutor to receive visitor or relatives.

Ardot Parojinog is the brother of former Ozamiz City Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog Sr. and has been wanted by Philippine authorities for his involvement in illegal drugs.

He was not in the house when the police raided the Parojinog residence in July last year. He went on hiding for 10 months in Taiwan where he entered illegally.

He is included in President Rodrigo Duterte’s narcolist of politicians and has a P5 million bounty on his head. – Lea Ylagan / Marje Pelayo

QUEZON CITY, Philippines – Philippine National Police (PNP) Spokesperson Chief Supt. John Bulalacao on Thursday, May 24, confirmed the arrest of former Ozamiz City Councilor Ricardo “Ardot” Parojinog in Pintung, Taiwan on Wednesday afternoon, May 23.

Ardot Parojinog is the younger brother of the slain Ozamiz City Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog Sr.

Bulalacao said “Ardot” was being hunted down by authorities for his alleged involvement in illegal drugs trade.

He has been in hiding for 10 months since the bloody raid in the house of the Parojinogs in Ozamiz City on July 30, 2017, that killed 15 persons including then-incumbent Mayor Parojinog and his wife Susan. Police seized a number of high-powered firearms and explosives in the Parojinog residence following the raid.

Bulalacao added that Ardot Parojinog was arrested by the Taiwan government for illegal entry.

” Yung Taiwan government ay nalaman na wala syang documents when he entered Taiwan (The Taiwan government found out that he didn’t have documents when he entered Taiwan),” he said.

Based on information received from Economic Cooperation Rep. Lito Banayo, Parojinog has been overstaying in Taiwan which prompted his capture.

PNP Chief PDG Oscar Albayalde said the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) and Philippine National Police-Drug Enforcement Group (PNP-DEG) will fetch Parojinog from Taiwan.

” Although wala pa kaming exact date, the PNP is always ready to go to Taiwan para sunduin itong si Ardot Parojinog at of course we will follow the process of deportation dahil may mga violation siyang na commit doon sa Taiwan the reason for his arrest. And it will take some time before he is deported to the Philippines,” said Bulalacao.

(Although we do not have an exact date, the PNP is always ready to go to Taiwan to bring home Ardot Parojinog. And of course we will the process of deportation because he committed violations in  Taiwan; the reason for his arrest. It will take some time before he is deported to the Philippines.)

Meanwhile, Malacañang welcomed the news of Parojinog’s arrest by Taiwanese authorities.

“Ito’y mabuting balita dahil unang-una ano po ginawa niya at nagtatago sa Taiwan, kung siya po ay walang batas na nilabag. Sabi nga po flight is evidence of guilt,” said Presidential Spokesperson Secretary Harry Roque.

(This is good news because firstly, why would he be hiding in Taiwan if he did not violate any laws? As they say: flight is evidence of guilt.)

He also assured justice for Ozamiz residents.

“Sa mga residente ng bayan ni Mayor at Councilor Parojinog, sisiguraduhin naman po natin na magkakaroon ng katarungan kung may nalabag na batas itong si Councilor Parojinog. Siya po ay iimbestigahan, lilitisin at parurusahan sa krimen yan,” said Roque.

(To the constituents of Mayor and Councilor Parojinog, we will ensure that justice will be served if indeed Councilor Parojinog committed a crime. He will undergo investigation and trial for that crime.)

It can be recalled that his niece, then Vice Mayor Princess Parojinog, was also arrested for possession of illegal drugs, and is now detained at the PNP Custodial Center while her brother Reynaldo Parojinog Jr. is in Quezon City Jail.

Ardot’s arrest was prompted by information relayed to the PNP by one of his former colleagues who was previously arrested. – Lea Ylagan / Marje Pelayo | UNTV News & Rescue
