Two recent hazing deaths at same school: Philippines–Marvin Reglos and Marc Andre Marcos

Two deaths at same school.


During Wednesday’s Senate hearing on deadly hazing incidents in the country, San Beda rector-president Rev. Father Aloysius Ma. Maranan recommended the following:

–  totally ban any form of hazing
–  include a provision [in the law requiring] a mandatory registration of fraternities and sororities to law enforcement agencies

San Beda has lost two of its law students to alleged hazing rituals. They were Marvin Reglos and Marc Andre Marcos.

“We are pursuing the case of Reglos and Marcos… and are fully cooperating with authorities in [the] resolution of all cases,” Maranan said.

“I truly share your grief and no words of mine can lessen the pain,” he told the family members of the victims.

But Maranan said he has tasked the San Beda administration to “go back to the drawing boards” and see what could be done to strengthen their resolve to ban hazing.
