Moderator: What is also newsworthy is a discussion on the pros and cons of offering immunity to hazers who take steps to save a hazing victim’s life. In this case, the rescue was too late. Should hazers be granted exemption from prosecution in such cases if they occur in the United States? Join the debate. It’s worth discussing in my opinion. –Hank Nuwer
According to Cavite police director Senior Superintendent John Bulalacao, to be included in the amended complaint are San Beda law students Marvin Reyes, Mohammad Fyzee Alim and Cornelio Marcelo, all members of the Lex Leonum Fraternitas and allegedly involved in the hazing incident.
Also to be charged are Angelito ‘Itan’ Veluz and his wife, Violeta, the owners of the farm in Dasmariñas City where the hazing took place and the parents of one of the identified suspects, Gian Angelo, Bulalacao said.
The police had earlier filed charges of violation of the Anti-Hazing Law against Gian Angelo Veluz and the two farm cooks, Soledad Sanda and Marlyn Guadayo.
A security guard at the De La Salle University Medical Center identified them as being among those who rushed Marcos to the hospital.
