Until now, the netizens are still talking about the prank that had gone horribly wrong in Pancan, Manila and they became more disappointed after discovering that most of the culprits who almost burned a vendor alive are minors.
According to the authorities of Pandacan, Manila, five of the seven suspects they invited to the Barangay Hall are minors.
The victim who identified as Oliver Rosales even claimed that the suspects seemingly had no regrets over the damage they caused.
Rosales received burns from his right arm and leg.
In an interview with GMA-7, Rosales accepted P35,000 from the parents of the suspects as part of their settlement.
Rosales, however, warned the suspects not to do the same thing again to others.
“Wag na lang nilang ulitin sa ibang tao kasi hindi lahat ay marunong magpatawad,” he said in an interview with Stand for Truth.
Despite what happened to his son, Nicolas Rosales, the father of the vendor said that he pitied the parents of the suspects.
“Naawa rin ako sa magulang, eh. Kasi, biro mo, ‘yung pangkakain na lang nila, ibingay pa sa amin, alang-ala na lang sa mga anak nila. Pero ‘yung mga bata naman hindi nila iniisip ‘yung sakripisyong idinulot nila sa mga magulang nila,” Nicolas said.
However, it was reported that journalist Raffy Tulfo wanted Rosales to pursue filing charges against the suspect.
Tulfo said that he wanted the suspects to face the consequences of what they did that’s why he asked Rosales to return the settlement money to the parents of the culprit.
The journalist also offered a new business and legal aid to the vendor.
