The spokesperson of the Police Public Relations Office also expressed there will be no further arrest which will took place after the spouse had been arrested, Rhea on December 25 and Peter on December 27.

Aside from Rhea and Peter, the police are also searching for Arnold Grospe, PEYA’s Marketing Manager who the Consulate through their source believed to flew to Macau then had flown home.
Meanwhile, as of January 30, 2018, ATN officer Danny Baldon informed The SUN that a total of 1,118 PEYA customers had gone to the Philippine Consulate to file complaints against the travel agency and demanded a full refund of the cost of their airline tickets.
PEYA’s office at the World-Wide Plaza in Central had been shut down since December 19, 2017.
Most of the affected customers of PEYA were domestic helpers whose tickets had been booked for Lunar New Year Holiday this month, the Lenten Season in March and graduation period in May.
