By JOVILAND RITA,GMA Integrated News

The Philippine National Police on Monday said it has coordinated with the Department of Justice to place on the Immigration watch list the hazing suspects in the death of Adamson University student John Matthew Salilig.

“We also coordinated already with the DOJ to put on the watch list itong mga suspects na ito so that at least Immigration will be alerted just in case these people try to flee outside our country,” PNP chief Police General Rodolfo Azurin Jr. said at a press briefing.

An immigration lookout bulletin order (ILBO) would direct Bureau of Immigration officers to inform authorities if those under the list are attempting to leave the country.

On February 28, the body of chemical engineering student Salilig was found in a shallow grave in Imus, Cavite, more than a week after he was last seen alive.

According to the police, Salilig underwent welcoming rites in a house in Biñan City, Laguna on February 19 as he transferred to the Adamson University chapter of the Tau Gamma Phi fraternity.

The victim reportedly was no longer in good condition in the middle of the rites. They were already on their way back to Manila when the victim died.


A fraternity neophyte identified the persons involved in the alleged hazing. Six of them underwent inquest proceedings at the Department of Justice Thursday.

Seven out of 15 suspects involved in the death of Salilig are under the custody of the police.

On Friday, the police said the driver of the gray AUV that carried the body of Salilig before it was buried was found dead

On Saturday, another suspect surrendered to authorities— RSJ, GMA Integrated News
