MANILA -- Police officials on Friday night brought back fugitive Ozamiz City Councilor Ricardo "Ardot" Parojinog into the country from Taiwan, where he was arrested for traveling with fake documents.

Parojinog arrived at about 9:55 p.m. on Board Philippine Airlines Flight No. PR 897 from Taipei.

He was brought to the Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP CIDG) headquarters in Camp Crame, Quezon City where he underwent booking procedures.

Parojinog supposedly used a bogus Bureau of Internal Revenue ID and professional driver’s license under the name Alberto Garcia Cruz in slipping out of the country.

Ardot is the brother of Ozamiz City mayor Reynaldo "Aldong" Parojinog, who was killed in an anti-drug raid by CIDG and Ozamiz City Police operatives last year. (PNA)
