Meanwhile, Makati City police chief Senior Superintendent Manuel Lukban Jr told Rappler in a text message they agreed with the National Bureau of Investigation to file the case against the suspects on Friday morning, July 11.
“We are still preparing the documents. Due to time constraints, we agreed to file the case tomorrow morning,” Lukban said on Thursday.
One suspect already in US
Members of Tau Gamma Phi fraternity are believed to be responsible for the June 28 hazing ritual that killed DLS-CSB student Guillo Cesar Servando and injured 3 other students.
Servando, John Paul Raval, Lorenze Agustin, and a 17-year-old male student were brought to a boarding house in Makati City for the initiation rites. After the initiation, they were brought back to One Archer’s Place along Taft Avenue in Manila.
From there, the students called Patrol 117 for help. They were rushed to the Philippine General Hospital, but Servando was pronounced dead on arrival.
One of the suspects, Kevin John Navoa, already left for the United States last July 1. (READ: BI: One of Benilde hazing suspects has fled to the US)
President Benigno Aquino III earlier condemned the hazing ritual following the death of Servando, while Valenzuela Representative Sherwin Gatchalian has filed a bill – the “Servando Act” – that seeks to ban hazing in and out of schools.
Youth groups called for a review of the 1995 Anti-Hazing Law, and several fraternities proposed for schools to start recognizing fraternities and sororities to prevent them from going underground. (READ: Is it time for schools to recognize fraternities?) – Rappler.com
