Solano's account on Castillo's fatal hazing bared

The statements made by John Paul Solano in a previous executive session with senators were bared during the continuation of the Senate investigation into the fatal hazing of University of Santo Tomas (UST) freshman law student Horacio Castillo III on Wednesday.

Solano is an Aegis Juris fraternity member and is the primary suspect in Castillo's death.

His account revealed that after the incident, he tried to hide by taking bus rides to Tarlac and Pangasinan.

He said he threw away his cellular phone because so many unidentified persons were calling him.

He slept along the streets at night and he would sit on the seats outside the gates of schools.

He said he also kept moving in remote barangays so that he would not be identified.

When his money on hand had gone down to P 700,  he bought a cellular phone and a SIM card and called his father to say he was returning home.

Solano and other fraternity members linked to the killing of Castillo are appearing in the Senate probe.

They, however, are invoking their right against self-incrimination. 

Solano has been claiming that he only helped bring Castillo's "half-dead body" to the Chinese General Hospital in Manila last September 17, 2017.
