Nilo Divina, 20 other Aegis lawyers face SC motu propio probe

Sharing is caring!

The Supreme Court has required University of Sto. Tomas Law Dean Nilo Divina along with 20 other lawyers implicated in the hazing death of Horacio Castillo III to answer their alleged involvement in the celebrated case.

In an en banc notice, Divina and other lawyers were given 10 days to file their comment on a Senate panel recommendation, suggesting their disbarment for their intricacy in Castillo’s death.

The high court treated the Joint Committee report by the public order on dangerous drugs and justice and human rights as a formal complaint, hence the SC’s motu propio action.

Aside from Divina, the lawyers now facing SC investigation are:

Marvi Abo
Alston Kevin Anarna
Edzel Bert Canlas
Cecilio Jimeno
Ferdinand Rogelio
Eric Fuentes
Cesar Ocampo Ona
Gaile Dante Acuzar Caraan
Gem Dimaculangan
Alfonso Verzosa
Henry Pablo Jr
Jet Dela Peña Villaroman
Cesar Dela Fuente
Niño Kjell Servañez
Manuel Angelo Ventura III
Michael Vito
Arthur Capili
Irvin Joseph Fabella
Edwin Uy
Allan Christopeher Agati

They are alumni of the Aegis Juris Fraternity and were accused of covering up Castillo’s death.
