MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Justice placed 16 members of the Aegis Juris Fraternity, persons of interest in the fatal hazing of University of Santo Tomas law student Horacio Castillo III, under the Immigration Lookout Bulletin Order.

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II, in a three-page memorandum, ordered the Bureau of Immigration to be on alert should any of the following members attempt to leave the country:

  • Arvin R. Balag
  • Mhin Wei Chan
  • Marc Anthony Ventura
  • Axel Mundo Hipe
  • Oliver John Audrey Onofre
  • Joshua Joriel Macabali
  • Jason Adolfo Robiños
  • Ralph Trangia
  • Ranie Rafael Santiago
  • Danielle Hans Mattew Rodrigo
  • Carl Mattew Villanueva
  • Aeron Salientes
  • Marcelino Bagtang
  • Zimon Padro
  • Jose Miguel Salamat
  • John Paul Solano

Solano, also a student of UST, brought Castillo to the hospital on Sunday morning. It was later found out that he is also a member of Aegis Juris Fraternity. Solano is being investigated as person of interest in the case.

Police also pointed out that there are inconsistencies in Solano’s statements such as where the body of Castillo was found.

Through the ILBO, immigration officers are ordered to immediately inform the Office of the Secretary and the Office of the Prosecutor General should there be indicators that the 16 are attempting to leave the country.

The ILBO, however, cannot bar the subjects from leaving the country as it is different from a Hold Departure Order issued by a local court.

Aguirre added in a statement that he “calls upon the persons named in the ILBO or anyone who has knowledge of what happened to Mr. Horacio Tomas Castillo III, to come forward to clear their names and share what they know.”

The lifeless body of Castillo, a first-year law student of the UST, was discovered early Sunday morning in Tondo, Manila.

His parents claimed that Horacio asked permission to attend the welcoming ceremonies of the Aegis Juris Fraternity on Saturday morning. His body, covered in a blanket when found, sustained contusions in the upper arms and candle burn marks.

Aguirre has ordered the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to conduct a separate probe on the matter.
