MANILA – The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) is set to file charges against 20 people being linked to the hazing death of De La Salle-College of St. Benilde student Guillo Servando.
Lawyer Pete Principe, legal counsel of the Servandos, said the NBI is set to file this afternoon the charges against 20 individuals for violating the Anti-Hazing Law.
Principe said 15 of the respondents were identified by name, while the rest only had aliases.
To be included in the charges are four women and two fraternity members who earlier surrendered to the NBI and the Department of Justice.
Among the Tau Gamma Phi members tagged in the death of Servando are Tau Gamma Phi chapter head Cody Morales, alleged master initiator Emerson Calupas, fraternity secretary and assigned medic Daniel Paul Cruz Bautista alias Pope Bautista, and members Trex Pablico alias Trex Garcia, Kurt Almazan, Carl Francis Loresca, Hans Tamaring, and Kevin Navoa.
The Bureau of Immigration earlier said Navoa already left the Philippines.
Servando, 18, passed away on June 28 after undergoing initiation by the Tau Gamma Phi fraternity, according to his fellow neophytes.– report from Zhander Cayabyab, dzMM
