BJMP: NO VIP TREATMENT FOR AEGIS JURIS FRATMEN



Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) public affairs office chief Senior Inspector Jayrex Bustinera said the 10 Aegis Juris fratmen charged for the hazing death of UST law student Atio Castillo III are not enjoying VIP treatment at the Manila City Jail (MCJ).

He clarified they are being treated like ordinary inmates.

According to the BJMP official, the 10 accused were taken to a dormitory that is supposed to house only 100 inmates but is occupied by 500 detainees.

It can be recalled that the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) turned over the fratmen to the MCJ after receiving the commitment order issued by Manila Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 20 Judge Marivic Umali on Tuesday night.
