The mother of University of Santo Tomas law student Horatio Castillo III on Wednesday claimed that some of her son's belongings are in the possession of Aegis Jvris fraternity members who were tagged in his fatal hazing. 

"You have his phone, bring it back. You have his eyeglasses, you have his watch, bring it back. Those are important to us," Carminia Castillo told fratmen at a Senate inquiry into the death of her son. 

"Those were his last things that I want." 

The 22-year-old Castillo was found dead by his parents a morgue in Manila last Sept. 18, hours after he asked permission to attend the welcome rites of Aegis Jvris. 

Criminal charges have been filed against several Aegis Jvris fratmen, including John Paul Solano, who allegedly brought Atio to the hospital. Also charged was UST Faculty of Civil Law dean Nilo Divina.

Last week, another hazing suspect, Ralph Trangia, returned to the Philippines from the United States to face the charges. He had left Manila on Sept. 19, a day after the Castillos learned of their son's death.

The incident has prompted separate House and Senate inquiries seeking to overhaul the Anti-Hazing Law.
