Dahil sa hazing scandal: PMA class baron nagbitiw sa pwesto

Iniwan ni Cadet First Class Ram Navarro ang kanyang posisyon bilang Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Cadet corps commander.

Ito’y kasunod ng pagkamatay ni Cadet Fourth Class Darwin Dormitorio noong nakaraang Setyembre dahil sa hazing ng ilang upperclassmen.

Ipapasa ni Navarro ang kanyang posisyon bilang Class Baron kay Cadet First Class Marion Cordova bilang pag-ako rin ng responsibilidad sa pagkamatay ni Dormitorio, at bigyan ng tsansang makapagreporma ang corps.

Cadet First Class Ram Navarro, the Class Baron (also known as the brigade commander), relinquished his post to Cadet First Class Marion Cordova in order to “share the responsibility for what happened (to Dormitorio) and to allow the Corps to initiate far-reaching reforms,” said Major Reynan Afan, PMA public information officer.

“In a community of leadership, discipline, trust and fellowship, the Cadet Corps Armed Forces of the Philippines … [are resolved] to put an end to such excruciating acts that defy the very values that the [PMA] instills and we stand as one corps against maltreatment,” ayon sa pahayag ni Navarro noong makumpirma ang kazing kay Dormitorio.

Kasunod din ito ng pagbibitiw din ni Lt. Gen. Ronnie Evangelista bilang superintendent ng PMA.
