UST legal counsel, NU athletic director attend Bicol bubble hearing

Representatives from University of Santo Tomas and National University were on-hand to present their reports to the Joint Administrative Order group, Tuesday afternoon.

Atty. Melvin Verzosa and Atty. Elgin Perez represented UST while athletic director Otie Camangian was NU’s.

This is UST’s first appearance since the investigation of the Growling Tigers’ alleged training camp in Sorsogon, Bicol began last August 23.

During the first two meetings, UST politely declined to attend, citing that the university’s probe was still on-going.

Atty. Verzosa and Atty. Perez presented the findings of the school as the probe ended last Thursday. On the other hand, Camangian discussed why the Lady Bulldogs were stranded in NU’s Manila and Laguna campuses.

For the last two weeks, UST has been embroiled in a controversy due to holding a training camp in Sorsogon since June.

IPEA athletic director Fr. Jannel Abogado resigned from his post last August 25 while five Growling Tigers have left the school as well.

It is expected that sanctions on either UST or NU will be finalized in the coming days.

Also in the Zoom session were Games and Amusement Board chairman Baham Mitra, Philippine Sports Commission national training director Marc Velasco, Department of Health representative Rodley Carza, and Commission on Higher Education executive director Prospero De Vera and Atty. Cindy Jaro; UAAP executive director Atty. Rebo Saguisag and Season 83 president Nonong Calanog.
