if E is a triple s p o . then I(E) = true if

s, p and o are in V, I(p) is in IP and <I(s),I(o)> is in IEXT(I(p))

otherwise I(E)= false.
-- section 1.4

So if sss ppp ooo is true then I(ppp) in IP.

x is in IP if and only if <x, I(rdf:Property)> is in IEXT(I(rdf:type))
-- section 3

Then from above, <I(ppp),I(rdf:Property)> is in IEXT(I(rdf:type))

Then I( ppp rdf:type rdf:Property ) is true, which is the desired entailment.
