The University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman on Thursday released a statement regarding an incident involving another fraternity, just days after a student from the De La Salle University - College of St. Benilde died from apparent fraternity hazing.
GMANetwork, Rappler reports: “The Diliman administration is in touch with the family. They want justice but also want to keep their privacy. We respect their decision and therefore cannot give details about the case as we continue with our investigation,” UP Diliman Chancellor Dr. Michael Tan said in a statement posted on the UP Diliman Facebook page.
On Wednesday, Rock Ed Philippines founder Gang Badoy, a UP Diliman alumna, tweeted that there was a “near death” from a “prominent” UP fraternity admitted recently at St. Luke's Medical Center. She said she got the message from someone at the hospital.
The Quezon City police district encouraged victims of hazing to report the matter to the authorities.
"Kung meron man... I encourage you to come out, sasabihin nila sa pulis para mabigyan natin ng kaukulan na dapat gawin," said Chief Superintendent Richard Albano, the director of the QCPD.
