PSC mum on UST investigation, lauds NU for cooperating

The Philippine Sports Commission and the Joint Administrative Order group could not comment on the case of University of Santo Tomas.

The group only saw the results of the school’s investigation of the Bicol bubble, which ended last August 27, during the meeting earlier.

The only agencies that received copies of the results were the Commission on Higher Education and the Department of Health.

“With regards to the issue raised against UST, the PSC can not comment at the moment. UST submitted their report only to CHED and DOH,” read the statement of PSC National Team Director Marc Velasco.

UST’s legal team of Atty. Melvin Verzosa and Atty. Elgin Perez read out their findings.

On the other hand, the PSC praised National University for cooperating with all agencies involved.

The Lady Bulldogs were also dragged into the meetings because of their alleged training sessions on NU’s Laguna campus.

“NU was present and gave its statement and committed to cooperate with any government inquiry on the matter. They also answered clarificatory questions from government agencies present,” Velasco continued as NU athletics director Otie Camangian represented the school in the meeting.

For their part, DOH, PSC, GAB, and CHED will reconvene later this week to share their insights on the respective findings and possibly make a resolution.
