Malacanang urges students to refrain from engaging in violent activities
MANILA, July 31 (Mabuhay) — Malacañang called on the students to refrain from participating in violent activities such as inflicting harm on others, as another case of suspected hazing resulted to the alleged death of a student from the San Beda law school, recently.
Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte issued the call during the regular press briefing on Tuesday in Malacanang stressing that no one benefits from such kind of illegal activities.
“Kung totoo man na ito ay biktima ng hazing, itigil na po natin ang ganitong cycle of violence, wala namang nagbe-benefit sa ganito,” Valte said.
She further assured that the Philippine National Police will be conducting a thorough investigation of the case.
“Nakagugulat po ang nangyari na meron na namang victim of alleged hazing, wala pa sa atin lahat ng impormasyon, sa aking pagkakaalam ay inutusan na ng hepe ng pulis doon na imbestigahan dahil late yata na-confirm,” Valte said.
Reports revealed that a student of San Beda law school died after going through a suspected fraternity hazing rituals in Dasmarinas, Cavite on Sunday.
In a post on its Facebook page, Lsghotline Sbc, the San Beda Law Student Government confirmed the death of Marc Andrei Marcos.
Pending the completion of investigation, the case is being treated as a “mauling” incident.
If the hazing angle proves true, Marcos would be the second San Beda law student to die from hazing this year after Marvin Reglos, who was killed in February. (MNS)
