Bar confidant Cristina Layusa explains instances when lawyers may be disbarred at the continuation of the Senate inquiry into the hazing death of University of the Santo Tomas law freshman Horacio "Atio" Castillo III.

Layusa also shared the process in which complainants could seek redress either through the Supreme Court or the Integrated Bar of the Philippines.

This after Sen. Juan Miguel Zubiri raised the case of some lawyers who were involved in the 1991 hazing death of Ateneo law student Leonardo "Lenny" Villa.

Castillo died from injuries he sustained during hazing rites of the Aegis Jvris Fraternity in September. ANC, October 18, 2017
