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.

Reclusion perpetua at tumataginting na P3 milyon na danyos ang rekomendasyon ng Senate Committee on Public Order and Illegal Drugs sa mga masasangkot sa pagkamatay ng isang indibiduwal dahil sa hazing.

Sa committee report ni Lacson, ipinaliwanag nitong humantong sila sa mga nabanggit na rekomendasyon matapos ang matagal at malalim na obserbasyon sa galaw ng mga indibiduwal at organisasyon na nabanggit sa naturang krimen.

Harsher penalties of up to reclusion perpetua and P3 million in fines are among the measures being eyed to prevent a repeat of deaths due to hazing.

Such higher punishments stemmed from hearings of the Senate Committee on Public Order and Dangerous Drugs chaired by Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson, who presented the committee report on the floor Wednesday.

At the hearings it conducted, Lacson’s committee found that law student Horacio Castillo III died while undergoing hazing rites of the Aegis Juris fraternity based at the University of Santo Tomas.
