Nagbitiw na kahapon sa Sigma Rho Fraternity si dating Senate President Jovito Salonga dahil sa pagkakadawit ng kapatiran sa pagkamatay ni Cris Anthony Mendez. Ayon kay Salonga, wala raw hazing noong panahon nila. Panoorin ang report ng GMANews.tv sa ibaba.

Sa pahayag ng isang Sigma Rhoan na si Ike Señeres, lumabas ang tunay na kulay ng ilang fraternity at ang sinasabi ni Prof. Luis Teodoro na pagbibigay ng mga fraternity ng “network of support and patronage from fraternity alumni in strategic positions in government, the professions and industry.”

“Hindi na niya kailangan siguro… Hindi na siya pulitiko. Hindi na siya tumatakbo. Hindi na niya kailangan ‘yung tulong ng frat… Sana magbilang siya kung ilang beses siyang tinulungan,” pambabaoy ni Señeres kay Salonga.

Sabi pa niya: “Mali nga siya. Ba’t siya naghusga, hindi naman siya judge.”


Labing-anim na taon na mula ngayon, isa si Salonga sa tinatawag na Magnificent 12–ang 12 senador na bomoto para wakasan na ang pananatili ng base militar ng Estados Unidos sa Pilipinas. Kasama rin ni Salonga sa grupong iyon sina dating Senador Wigberto Tañada, Teofisto Guingona, Aquilino Pimentel at Joseph Estrada.

Ang iba pang kasama sa Magnificent 12 ay sina Butch Aquino, Sotero Laurel, Victor Ziga, Juan Ponce Enrile, Rene Saguisag, Ernesto Maceda at Orlando Mercado.

Sina Guingona at Pimentel, kasama sina Raul Roco, Loren Legarda, at Sergio Osmeña III naman ay bomoto laban sa US-RP Visiting Forces Agreement noong May 27, 1999.
