CHED condemns recent death by hazing of another law student

        The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) condemns in the strongest terms the recent death of San Beda College of Law student Marc Andrei Marcos who died last Monday evening in Cavite due to hazing. Early this year, shortly after the death of Bedan Marvin Reglos, CHED issued an urgent directive to all private and public higher education institutions (HEIs) reiterating their strict compliance to the provisions of RA No. 8049 or the Anti-Hazing Law and the immediate submission of a certified list of fraternities and sororities existing in their institutions. San Beda College responded to CHED’s Memorandum in writing saying it “does not recognize fraternities, sororities or similar organizations... hazing incidents are serious administrative offenses, explicitly classified as major offenses.” The school added, “...considering that they are not recognized, the school could not therefore submit, as of this time, a certified list of officers and members.” Other schools have been submitting the required lists.

        The Commission is alarmed by this second casualty from San Beda College and has directed the school to explain what sanctions it has imposed on those students charged in the Reglos case. With this second incident involving student Marcos, the College was reminded of its heavy responsibilities and duties under RA 8049 or the Anti-Hazing Law. Such acts of violence and injury run counter to the basic values and fundamental principles for which HEIs are established. The Commission once again calls upon the officials of the College, the officers and members of the fraternity to undertake with utmost urgency all proper and necessary measures to ferret out the truth, investigate with expediency the circumstances leading to the senseless loss of a young life so that the perpetrators of this latest dastardly acts would be brought to justice.

        Issued this 31st of July 2012 at the Higher Education Center building, CP Garcia Avenue, UP Campus, Diliman, Quezon City.
