Ping: PNPA Sex Scandal, Pang-Sampol sa Anti-Hazing Law

May paggagamitan na ang talas ng bagong Anti-Hazing Law o Republic Act 11053 upang malaman ang pagiging epektibo nito.

Ayon kay Senador Panfilo Lacson na dati ring pinuno ng Philippine National Police (PNP), isang kongkretong halimbawa ng kaso na puwedeng paggamitan ng naturang batas ay ang naganap na sex scandal sa Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA).

Ang oral sex bilang parusa sa mga nagkamali o nagkasala na kadete ng PNPA ay malinaw upang paglabag sa naturang batas kung pagbabatayan ang mga nilalaman nito, ayon sa mambabatas.

“In this case, the cadets involved will have the distinction of being the first to be convicted under the new law,” banggit ni Lacson.

Lacson: PNPA Scandal a Test Case for New Anti-Hazing Law

The recent scandal that rocked the Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA) would be a test case for Republic Act 11053, the new Anti-Hazing Act of 2018, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said.

Lacson said the scandal, which reportedly involved cadets forcing freshmen to perform oral sex as a form of punishment, is considered hazing under the new law.

“In this case, the cadets involved may have the distinction of being the first to be convicted under the new law,” he said.

On the DOJ’s Criminal Case vs Aegis Juris Members over Atio Castillo’s Hazing Death

Basing it on the evidence gathered and presented during the public hearings conducted by the Senate on the Atio hazing case, the DOJ panel may have overlooked or disregarded the cover-up angle committed by the other frat members not included in the indictment.

The pieces of evidence like the authenticated contents of the group chat participated in by clearly identified members and officers, the video footages and other documents should have been enough for the DOJ to find probable cause to also charge them for being accessories after the fact at the very least.
