Kabataan Party-list condemns the killing of alleged hazing victim, Horacio Tomas Castillo III, 22, a first year UST law student, who was found dumped on a Manila sidewalk and brought to the Chinese General Hospital where he was declared dead on Sept 17 morning.

According to news reports, his father, Horacio Tomas Castillo Jr., said that his son’s body was bloated, full of drops of candle wax and suffered from hematoma.

We must put an end to hazing and seek justice for the ever-growing list of victims. If there is something to be put to death, it is the old rotting tradition of hazing and the culture of impunity, NOT the lives of the future of our nation!

We join his family in bringing the perpetrators and instigators of violence to justice! With this filing up incidents of killings, all the more, the youth must unite with the Filipino masses in fighting against this fascist and tyrannical regime that propagates violence and impunity.
