WNU assures
action vs. hazing


The management of West Negros University yesterday assured it will help their student who allegedly became a victim of hazing last week attain justice.

A press statement from Elmer Bolivar, WNU vice president for administration, said the institution is determined to make those responsible for the alleged hazing answerable for the crime they committed.

The victim, whose name the police withheld, was invited by a fellow teenager Thursday last week to meet his friends. The victim agreed, not knowing that it would be an initial meeting with the alleged members of the fraternity called the “Tau Gamma Phi”, Bolivar said. When the victim refused to join the organization, the “master initiator” threatened him, Bolivar added.

Bolivar also said that the suspect is not a member of the University’s football varsity team nor is he a student of WNU, contrary to what had been reported by some media entities (not the DAILY STAR).

As of yesterday, the members of the student personnel services and the disciplinary office are conducting their own investigation on the incident to identify those who are responsible.

The mother of the victim had sought the help of the Bacolod City Police Office Women and Children’s Complaints Desk. City Police Officer in charge Senior Supt. Ricardo de la Paz has ordered a thorough probe on the incident.*APN
