DAPAT gawing mandatoryong ideklara ng mga estudyante sa kanilang mga form sa aplikasyon sa kolehiyo kung sila ay miyembro ng isang fraternity o sorority.
Iminungkahi Ito ni Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri nitong Lunes sa pagdinig ng Senate committee on justice and human rights sa fatal fraternity hazing ng Adamson University student na si John Matthew Salilig.
“Do you think that to improve the law, we need to now compel students who enter universities to mandatorily declare that they are members of fraternities para alam ninyo,” ayon kay Zubiri.
“The problem kasi [is] and correct me if I’m wrong, there are fraternities that are not school-based. If we now compel, under the law, the schools and the students to mandatorily declare if they are members of fraternities or not, maybe that will help,” dagdag pa niya.
Sa pamamagitan ng declaration form, sinabi ni Zubiri na magkakaroon ng kaalaman ang mga learning institutions kung ang estudyante ay bahagi ng fraternity o sorority at magkakaroon ng grounds para suspindihin o paalisin ang estudyanteng sakalingl madawit ito sa gulo.
Sinang-ayunan ni Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges legal counsel Luzviminda Rosales at Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities legal staff Maya Jajalla ang mungkahi ni Zubiri.
“I think that would be of great help to the universities so that we will have knowledge whether there are students who are actually members of community-based fraternities,” ani Rosales.
“The suggestion of Senator Zubiri is helpful because then the schools, our member schools who do not recognize school-based fraternities can know who are members of community-based fraternities,” ayon naman kay Jajalla.
