If Ralph Trangia tells the truth about what happened to hazing victim Horacio Castillo III, he shall not have wasted his young life, according to Bagong Henerasyon Party-list representative and House Committee on Public Information chairman Bernadette Herrera-Dy. Why so she explains in her statement as follows:
Ralph Trangia is a young man. He has his whole life ahead of him. This particular episode in his life is his true coming of age. Standing for what is right, true, and just is what is truly meant by being human.
Trangia can still recover from this debacle and look forward to the future if he speaks the truth and honors the memory of Horacio “Atio” Castillo, III.
As principal author of the Revised Anti-Hazing Bill in the House of Representatives, my specific interest in this is to see if the provisions of the anti-hazing bill can address the particular circumstances of the Atio Castillo case.
Also, I want to know if the old anti-hazing law is enough to secure justice for Atio.
If either the current law or the bill pressing through Congress can bring the Atio hazing cohorts to justice, then Congress was able to do its part.
I shall keep following this case very closely.
