SC asks Senate to explain detention of UST Aegis Juris Frat boss Balag‎

Nov 7, 2017 @ 17:24

The Senate has been asked by the Supreme Court (SC) to comment on the petition of Aegis Juris president Arvin Balag to be released from detention.

SC spokesperson Theodore Te on Tuesday (November 7) said the Senate has been directed to submit its comment “within a non-extendible period of ten days from notice of the order.”

The SC sought the Senate comment after Balag filed a petition for habeas corpus and the application for a temporary restraining order.

Balag has been identified as one of those who participated in the initiation rites which led to the death of Aegis Juris neophyte and University of Sto. Tomas (UST) law freshman Horacio “Atio” Castillo III.

The fraternity president has been detained at the Senate which has been conducting an inquiry over Atio’s death after Balag refused to reveal what actually took place at the initiation rites.
