MANILA, Philippines — Ten members of the Aegis Juris fraternity have surrendered to the National Bureau of Investigation on Friday following the issuance of an arrest warrant against them.

On Thursday, a Manila court ordered the arrest of the fraternity members involved in the fatal hazing of UST law student Horacio “Atio” Castillo III.

According to a report from The STAR, Manila Regional Trial Court Judge Alfredo Ampuan ordered the arrest of Mhin Wei Chan, Jose Miguel Salamat, John Robin G. Ramos, Marcelino Bagtang Jr., Arvin A. Balag, Ralph Trangia, Axel Munro Hipe, Oliver Onofre, Joshua Joriel Macabali and Hans Matthew Rodrigo.

The 10 fraternity members are accused of violating the Anti-Hazing Law.

In September 2017, the Manila Police District recommended the filing of murder, anti-hazing and robbery complaints against the Aegis Juris members. — Patricia Lourdes Viray with a report from Rey Galupo
