Angara deplores hazing violence: Brotherhood has better tests


Joining a fraternity or sorority does not have to cost a person’s life.

Senator Sonny Angara has denounced hazing violence following the death of a law student of the University of Santo Tomas due to injuries from alleged violent rituals.

“Another victim of hazing violence. Doesn’t make you less/more of a man to have undergone violent initiation. Brotherhood has better tests,” Angara tweeted.

Horacio Tomas Castillo III, a freshman, was declared dead upon arrival at the Chinese General Hospital over the weekend. His body was found abandoned on the street of Balut, Tondo last Sunday, bearing bruises, cigarette and candle wax burns.

The Castillo family has demanded justice for the death of their loved one.
