MANILA, Philippines—No arrests were made by the Manila International Airport Authority’s police intelligence and investigation department (PIID) after Sunday’s “rumble” at the NAIA Terminal 3 between Philippine Daily Inquirer columnist Ramon Tulfo and a group of men, including actor Raymart Santiago.

Lieutenant Demterio Sison, PIID officer in charge, said they “have yet to determine the suspects in this incident. That is why, no arrests were made by NAIA 3 policemen.”

“Right now, we have two sets of complainants. Mr. Tulfo on one side and Claudine Barretto and husband, Raymart Santiago, on the other. We are still investigating the case,” Sison told the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

Initial police investigation disclosed that Tulfo got into a fistfight with the group of Raymart Santiago after the columnist used his cell phone to take pictures of the actress while she was berating an airline staff for her lost luggage, according to the columnist.

“We’re still trying to find out who started the fight,” said Sison, who observed “may maga sa mukha si Mr. Tulfo.”

Tulfo, on the other hand, accidentally kicked Barretto’s leg.

The fistfight took place around 11 a.m. at the NAIA 3 baggage claim area.

Tulfo, a passenger of a domestic flight from Davao City, reportedly chanced upon Santiago and Barretto who were among the passengers of Cebu Pacific flight 5J 896 from Boracay

    Ito nalang ISIPIN nyo… Ano gagawin nyo kung Nanay nyo ang Minumura ni Claudine at Tatay nyo naman binubugbug ni Raymart. Anu gagawin nyo?

    • IanAlera

      Replying to ryepim,

      Ano naman kaya ang gagawin mo kung may isang tao na sisipa at tutulak sa misis mo? Prima facie evidence ang pasa sa hita ni Claudine. Ano tingin mo?

      • velocity_16

        @ IAnAlera Naniniwala ka na sinipa ng intentional ni tulfo si Claudine? Panourin mo ang video. Of course naki sali siya sa bugbugan eh di na siba. Buti sa kanya.

      • IanAlera

        Tignan mo yung video, hindi sinipa ni Mon Tulfo si Claudine , nung nag-r-rumble sila.  Sang-ayon kay Claudine at s asawa niya, sinipa ni Tulfo si Claudine bago nag-simula ang pagkuha ng video, bago nag-simula ang rumble.

      • cooldoods

        hindi ako naniniwalang sinipa ni Mon Tulfo si Claudine, even with provocation. nasa publiko sila at isang journalist si Mon Tulfo. Kahit isiping barumbado syang tao at least may isip naman siguro sya para hindi gumawa ng physical attack na may mga witnesses sa isang tao na maaaring may kasama.

      • IanAlera

        Replying to cooldoods,

        May interview kanina sa Channel 2 TV Patrol, isang eyewitness na pasahero din at Anna ang pangalan niya. 

        Sinabi ni  Anna na sinipa at tinulak ni Tulfo si  Claudine, bago naganap yung nakikita sa video.  Sinabi din ng witness na si Tulfo ang sumuntok at sumipa kay Raymart, ng tinanong ni Raymart si Tulfo kung ano yung ginagawa niya.

        Sabi din sa interview na approximately 8 minutes ang altercation bago pa makuhanan ng video. 

        May isang separate interview din kay Mon Tulfo sa You tube. Sinabi ni Mon tulfo na tinadyakan/ natadyakan niya si Claudine. Nung tinanong siya kung bakit, ang sagot niya ay dahil sinuntok daw siya.

        Hanapin mo sa You tube, baka makita mo yung mga interview.

    Don’t believe that the incident was not captured on CCTV. Question: Who is suppressing the video and why? Will not be surprised if it is Tulfo, himself.

  • joeyrivera

    Any decent and learned person, like the Santiagos, certainly knows that berating and cursing on the arrival agents will not solve the off-loaded baggage problem. As cheap as Cebu Pacific might be, I think that they have a Customer Service that deals with these kind of problems. File your complaints and if they don’t deliver on their promises take it further up the management. Furthermore, there were statements made that children medications were in those off-loaded baggage. That’s the most stupid thing anyone with a bit of intelligence would do, you put those medicines in your carry-ons.

    I’ve heard Tulfo over the radio in one of my trips to Manila, I find his style unique compared to journalism per se abroad but also effective. To me, him poking his nose into the initial berating of the agents is just part of his job.

    This incident is what it is because of people who thinks just because who they are or in this case, who they were, are above the rest. If you want to be respected then be prepared also to show respect.

      Ikaw kaya hindi mo alam na ang gamit mo hindi kasama di ka rin ba magalit. Tapos ang mga handcarried limited naman na kahit ilang ml na liquid di puede handcarried.  Have u tried that subukan mo kaya kong ang inhaler para sa may asthma hindi puede handcarried. ano kaya feeling mo.

      • joeyrivera

         Even on international flights you are allowed to several liquid containers as long as each is not more than 100 ml. If small water bottles are allowed so much more for your medicine. Inhalers am sure is not a problem too.

        But anyone who put their medicines in their checked in luggage needs to have their brains scanned and examined. There’s something amiss.

        I, too, would be upset if for any reason my luggage is delayed. But by the time you find out your luggage is not in your flight you can not do a thing except to accept the fact. You can curse and rant all you want your stuff will not appear in an instant. And there was a valid reason why some of the baggage were off-loaded, too much weight that makes the take off very dangerous. Cebu Pacific was at fault for allowing passengers to check in more than the allowed. I’ve read that Cebu Pacific offered a financial compensation of PhP1000 for each delayed luggage with a promise they will deliver them to your place of residence, what more can you ask.

        Teofilo, alam mo kahit na off-load pa ang gamot at asawa mo, magpakatao ka pa  rin. Hindi mo gagamitin ang nangyari para meron kang pruweba na maliitin ang mga may kasalanan. Show some glamour and descency

  • Ely Alberto

    Mas kapanipaniwala ang kwento ni Mon Tulfo kaysa sa mga Santiago dahil mula ito sa umpisa. Ipinaliwanag ang pinagmulan ng gulo – ang pagkuha niya ng still photo ni Claudine. Ang kwento ni Claudine magmula na sa bandang gitna. Nagwawala na si Tulfo: nanununtok, naninipa tapos e bigla na lang siyang sinipa ng ilang beses at pagkatapos e sinalya siya sa counter. Doon pa lang pumasok sa eksena si Raymart na pinagtanggol lang ang asawa niya.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/AFWHFTQHHKGHUEMNCYVGHKU4V4 Zhy

      tama ka poh jan,, sa tingin ng mag asawa kasi sa sarili nila i ang taaas nila. wala namang taong bsta manununtok ng babae o kahit lalaki not unless naprovoke e2,,

      Naniniwala ka kay tulfo na di niya namumukhaan si claudine nung kinukunan niya? Hahaha! Sabihin na natin laos na si claudine pero imposibleng di niya mamukhaan sila claudine at raymart. Magkakainteres ba siya na kunan un kung sino lang ng nagwawala dun. Wag sarado mga isip nain brad. Wala naman tayo dun e.

  • bajingjing
