“There is no unity, no brotherhood, no strength, no honor, no dignity and no respect in hazing.”

Pagkatapos imbestigahan ang pagkamatay ni Horacio “Atio” Castillo III dulot ng hazing, inirekomenda ng komite ni Sen. Lacson sa Korte Suprema na i-disbar ang mga abogadong miyembro ng Aegis Juris fraternity, kabilang si Dean Nilo Divina. Ipinaalala rin ng komite na hindi maaaring manatiling tahimik ang pamunuan ng University of Santo Tomas sa hazing.

Lacson Committee: Reclusion Perpetua, P3M Danyos sa mga Sangkot sa Hazing

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.

Ang mga nabanggit na rekomendasyon ay personal na isiniwalat ni Senador Panfilo Lacson, chairman ng naturang komite, matapos ang mga pagdinig na bunga ng pagkamatay ng hazing victim na si Horacio Castillo III mula sa University of Santo Tomas (UST).

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.

Lacson Committee Pushes Reclusion Perpetua, Hefty Penalties vs Hazing Deaths

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.

Sponsorship Speech: Committee Report on the Fatal Hazing of Horacio ‘Atio’ Castillo III, and SB 1662 (Anti-Hazing Law of 2018)

Mr. President, sometime in September 2017, Horacio “Atio” Castillo III was offered the promise of mutual support and brotherhood by the Aegis Juris Fraternity not only during his tenure as a law student at the University of Santo Tomas Faculty of Civil law, but also during the Bar review and even in his future practice of the legal profession.

Apart from the guarantees made known to him, Atio decided to join the fraternity with a specific goal in mind, to discover his real purpose in life. Little did he know that his search for purpose would cost him his own life.
