Gary Alejano admits: He went through hazing too

0

This retired military man has been through hazing and has passed it on, like many others among their ranks.

Former Magdalo Rep. Gary Alejano weighed in as a deadly hazing scandal rocked the Philippine Military Academy (PMA). The politiko took a look back on his journey and realized he’s been through the same.

“Relying solely on the letter of the anti-hazing law where physical, emotional and psychological discomfort are defined as hazing, certainly I had been hazed and had committed one,” Alejano said. “I guess we need to review the law or else the country ends up w/ crying babies as officers of AFP.”


But he stopped there, vowing he’d never go down the same path as Senator Bato Dela Rosa who legitimized hazing as normal and character-building training.

“The education and training in PMA made me who I am today. Not hazing,” Alejano added.
