SENATOR Raffy Tulfo urged the management of ride-hailing firm Angkas to dismiss its rider Aurelio Subiera who allegedly robbed and attempted to rape his passenger last November 12 in Brgy. Manggahan, Pasig City.

During the Senate hearing of Committee on Justice and Human Rights, Nov. 29, Tulfo berated Angkas Rep. Jauro Castro for merely suspending Suberia.

“Bakit suspension lang? Dapat sibakin niyo!,” Tulfo said.

Aurelio promised to take immediate action regarding Tulfo’s recommendation.

It can be recalled that the passenger, alias “Carla,” recently complained on his program “Raffy Tulfo in Action” that Aurelio tried to molest her and only stopped upon seeing other people in the area. Before escaping from the scene of the crime, she said Aurelio snatched her mobile phone and wallet.

Tulfo told Castro that Angkas should replace some of its officials, especially those who are not following company policies and are not taking customer complaints seriously.

Castro admitted Angkas’ shortcomings and lapses and apologized in behalf of the company.

To avoid crimes like this, Tulfo recommended for Angkas to conduct a regular drug test on its drivers stressing that those under the influence of prohibited drugs are prone to committing grave offenses.
