AN ANGELES City court issued a precautionary hold departure order (PHDO) against Alan Dennis L. Sytin and one respondent allegedly involved in the killing of businessman Dominic L. Sytin. The murder and frustrated murder complaints against them are pending before the Department of Justice (DoJ). Angeles City Regional Trial Court Executive Judge Omar T. Viola, on May 20, said there is probable cause to believe that Mr. Sytin and Mr. Oliver D. Fuentes, alias Ryan Rementilla, “will depart from the Philippines to evade arrest and prosecution of crime against them…” The prosecutors filed the petition for PHDO on May 17. Dominic L. Sytin — chief executive officer of United Auctioneers, Inc., chairman of Foton Philippines, and director and chairman of the board of the listed LMG Chemicals Corp — was gunned down outside the Lighthouse Hotel at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone on Nov. 28, 2018. His body guard Efren Espartero was wounded. Philippine National Police chief Director General Oscar D. Albayalde on March 11 claimed that Alan Dennis Sytin, brother of the victim, is the alleged mastermind of the crime after he was identified by alleged hitman Edgardo P. Luib in his testimony. — Vann Marlo M. Villegas
