Vice President jejomar Binay admits he was also subjected to hazing when he was a student, but he now blames weak law enforcement for the continued incidence of hazing related deaths.
Binay notes at least one case of hazing is stuck in the preliminary investugation phgase because the witnesses have all started to disappear.
“ kung talagang determinado tayo na madala sa hustsiya yang mga iyan
aotgulung tulungan natin ilabas at kumbinsihin tetsigo di naman gagawa storya yun.”
Binay points out that laws are already strict about hazing, it’s the dispensation of justice that is taking too long.
“may ngipin ho ang batas, liwa liwanag may kaparusahan. prublema ang tagal tagal bago matapos ang kaso, bago magkaroon ng hustsiya ang namatayan kaya walang takot.”
Binay, a member of the Alpha Phi Omega Fraternity, says he was also subjected to hazing, a practice that the fraternity has long abandoned.
“ako nahazing ako nagdaan ako sa hisap matagal nang panahon na officially pinagbawal na naming hazing sa fraternity naming. noon ang sinasabi pagka walang pinaghirapan walang pinagkunan ang pagiging miyembro
sang lingo duguan katawan ko nun matapos ako ng finals.”
Binay explains that many students jin fraternities for purposes of camaraderie.”
lalo na mga taga lalawigan walang kaibigan bagong salta naghahanap ng camaraderie. iba ang samahan sa fraternity kesa mga gang gang.”
Another lure of the fraternity is being able to call many high profile members, as “brod” since many fraternties have prominent alumni in society.
Binay said he also was subjected to paddle hazing and the so-called “Indian run”
