Frat members beat up Kiko’s grandson

The 18-year-old grandson of Sen. Kiko Pangilinan was beaten up by fraternity members inside the Adamson University in Manila last August 7.

Robert Pangilinan, a third year Hotel Management student at Adamson, went to the National Bureau of Investigation and recounted how members of the Tau Gamma Phi fraternity allegedly beat him up while other students watched. He said he was just able to run away.

Robert told the NBI that the frat members have been harassing him since last year.

“They always bullied him, binabatukan ng mga members every time they see him. He was recruited by the fraternity with the promise that they will never hurt him. He joined the frat but the group did not stop,” said Robert’s mother, Marissa.

One of Robert’s teachers said he is a “good student with high grades and was very jolly, until the frat began bullying him.”

“Wala naman kami magagawa dito sa school, at malimit nangyayari pag-bully ng mga Tau Gamma dito. Better magpahinga muna at lipat na lang siya ng school. We also fear for his life,” said the teacher. (Charina Clarisse L. Echaluce)
