BASED ON MEDICO LEGAL FINDINGS | Cadet died due to hazing – PMA spox
September 20, 2019 , 12:21 PM

SEPTEMBER 20, 2019 – Hazing was the cause of death of a plebe at the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) based on the findings of police medico legal team, the academy’s spokesman said on Friday.

The medico legal team of the Baguio Philippine National Police reported the body of Cadet 4th Class Darwin Dormitorio showed signs of blunt force trauma that resulted in internal hemorrhage.

“Actually that is an admission that there was already a maltreatment [that] happened… Right now we can ascertain there was maltreatment that happened,” PMA Superintendent Ronnie Evangelista told reporters.

Administrative charges will be filed and sanctions will be meted on those found involved in the incident.

“We pledge that no stones will be left unturned. All perpetrators will be held liable to the full extent of the law,” Evangelista said.

Domitorio was found unconscious inside his room on Wednesday. He was rushed to the hospital but was declared dead after an hour.

The 20-year-old cadet reportedly complained of stomach pain while inside the academy.

“Merong internal hemorrhage, may mga torn tissue and organs na nabugbog.. which caused the bleeding,” said Capt. Reynaldo Dave, the medico legal officer of Baguio PNP.

The police said they now have three persons of interest and may face charges under the Anti-Hazing Law.

“There will be possibly more cases and other cadets who will come out during the investigation. We would like to inform the public and the cadets that the possible penalty ng Anti-Hazing Law when it results in death is reclusion perpetua and P3-million fine,” police city director Col. Allen Rae Co said. (Karen Macalalad/ AAD)
