NATIONAL Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Southeastern Mindanao Regional Office filed charges against 35 members of Tau Gamma Phi and Tau Gamma Sigma accused of killing a neophyte in August.

The victim, Carl Anthony Gaudicos, an 18-year-old Engineering student at Holy Cross of Davao College, died during initiation rites conducted by the fraternity members for those who want to join the group.

The incident happened around 1 p.m. on August 21 in Purok 4, Barangay Ilang, Bunawan District.

The suspects were charged based on the accounts of Nacar Sajari Kuhutan, 22, a resident of Barangay Ilang in Tibungco, the fraternity's deputy Grand Triskelion.

In an affidavit, Kuhutan said that around 8 a.m. on August 21, their grand triskelion Pablito Manco Jr. went to their house and informed him of the scheduled initiation for the Holy Cross chapter that will be conducted at their usual venue.

He said he just proceeded to the agreed venue.

After two hours, some 20 members from the Holy Cross chapter arrived, set the venue, and prepared food.

After lunch, he left and returned around 4 p.m.

He talked to the other members and was informed that a neophyte (Gaudicos) was unconscious.

While he was preparing food, he noticed a commotion and saw the victim groping for his breath while other members were trying to revive him.

He noticed that the victim could hardly move his body, was very pale and his nails purple.

He said they flagged down a taxicab and brought the victim to the hospital where he died while being treated.

The suspects remain at large.

‘Hazing is at term used to describe various ritual and other activities involving harassment, abuse or humiliation used as a way of initiating a person into a group.”-Source: Wikipedia

I am an anti-hazing fratman but pro-principles of initiation. I do suggest that first of all we should be all aware of the health background of a certain enrollee or in fraternal term we call it neophyte or pledge. Especially this should catch up the attention of every screening committee in general. Don’t expect that the neophyte will cooperate divulging his negative health condition if there's any, most of the time he will deny it to avoid being rejected. It's should be our full responsibility cause as soon as someone starts as a neophyte or a pledge he is already under the organization’s custody. If we see that the neophyte is not capable of undergoing the initiation however, he is determinated in pursuing the membership, we can still let him carry on by giving him longer term of service, if not physically, then we can do plenty of mental tasks that I'm sure will boost and evaluate their intellectual capacity. Of course we can't call anyone a full pledge member without the final rites. What the officers, (especially the head, deputy, MWW or MI) can do to avoid any tragic scenario is to keep everyone in the team calm. Start with a prayer, focus with a purpose of success. Stick with the standard figure but if it’s possible to lessen the numbers, or better yet minimize the pressure of each strike without sacrificing the quality of what is being given then do so. Anyway it’s on our end as elders to orient and get them acquainted of our traditions in the long run. All the same membership does not end after the final rites, thus it’s just the beginning of a fraternal life. It’s a staircase of various learning through experiences and discoveries just like and infant as he grows into adulthood.
