Damay-damay na ‘to brod! Suspect in Castillo’s death ready to tell all – Lacson
John Paul Solano is willing to reveal all information surrounding the death of UST law student Horacio “Atio” Castillo III, Senator Panfilo Lacson said Sunday.
Lacson said Solano, who is the main suspect in the killing of Castillo, is set to appear at the Senate hearing on Monday.
“Hindi lang bukas (Monday’s Senate probe), kundi sa MPD (Manila Police District). Sinabi niya na baka sa formal investigation na lang ako magbigay ng detalye,” Lacson said in a radio interview.
The Senate inquiry is scheduled at 6 p.m. Monday.
“Pati yung ibang frat members ipapatawag na rin kasi hindi lang naman limited ang pag-uusap doon sa nangyari kay Atio, kundi mako-cover nito ang lahat ng fraternities. Kasi ang aayusin nito ay Anti-Hazing Law eh, so kailangan makunan din sila ng input,” the politiko added.
Solano, who is also a member of the Aegis Juris Fraternity, surrendered to Lacson last week after he was tagged as a suspect in the case for bringing Castillo to the hospital.
He confessed that he issued false statements to the police about how he found the body of Castillo.
He has yet to issue a sworn affidavit but Lacson expressed doubt if the revised statement of Solano would save him from a perjury case.
Castillo died of massive heart attack due to injuries and hematoma allegedly after undergoing hazing initiation rites.
