Pacquiao on hazing suspects: Kung hindi lang masama, hamunin ko sabay-sabay sila

“Kung hindi lang masama, pwede ko sila hamunin, sabay-sabay sila,” Senator Manny Pacquiao said after University of Santo Tomas (UST) law freshman Horacio Castillo III was killed after attending the “welcome rights” of fraternity Aegis Juris.

“Kawawa naman yung bata na nag-aaral pa,” he added.

“Yung mga ganun, yun ang mga duwag eh. Sa totoo lang, yun ang mga duwag na tao, nambubugbog ng tao na walang kalaban-laban eh,” Senator Pacquiao noted.

Meanwhile, Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II directed Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente to instruct all immigration officers in the country’s airports and seaports to be on the lookout to prevent attempts of the 16 “persons of interest” to leave the country.

Placed under the ILBO are Arvin R. Balag, Mhin Wei Chan, Marc Anthony Ventura, Axel Mundo Hipe, Oliver John Audrey Onofre, Joshua Joriel Macabali, Jason Adolfo Robiños, Ralph Trangia, Ranie Rafael Santiago, Danielle Hans Mattew Rodrigo, Carl Mattew Villanueva, Aeron Salientes, Marcelino Bagtang, Zimon Padro, Jose Miguel Salamat and John Paul Solano.

“I signed an Immigration Lookout Bulletin Order (ILBO) against members of the Aegis Juris Fraternity who are considered persons of interest in the death of Horacio Tomas Castillo III, a freshman law student of the College of Law, University of Santo Tomas,” Aguirre said.

Aguirre said the named subject of the ILBO were provided to Justice Undersecretary Erickson Balmes by police investigators looking into the incident.

“I call upon the persons named in the ILBO or anyone who has knowledge of what happened to Mr. Horacio Tomas Castillo III, to come forward and to clear their names and share what they know,” he noted. with PNA
