Statement of Justice Secretary Vitaliano N. Aguirre II on the return to the country of Ralph Trangia, one of the suspects in the alleged hazing of Horacio “Atio” Castillo III

10 October 2017

The return to the country of Mr. Ralph Trangia is a welcome development in our ongoing  quest for justice for the death of Atio Castillo.

Hopefully, Mr. Trangia’s return is covered in good intentions to clear his name and to tell the truth.

While he may be a suspect as of the moment, depending on what he will tell our investigators, he could be a potential witness. And for this reason, the DOJ offers to him and to his family, the protection of our Witness Protection Program (WPP).

I encourage Mr. Trangia and his family to fully cooperate, to tell the truth and, as a future lawyer, to work for justice. And I again reiterate the DOJ’s invitation to anyone who knows anything about what happened to Mr. Atio Castillo to come forward and to tell the truth. Those who do will find the truth liberating, you cannot live in lies and untruth forever. We are waiting for you.
