MANILA, Philippines – The fate of a Philippine Military Academy cadet who was administratively discharged after he violated the Honor Code remains uncertain, 11 days before graduation, a military spokesman said Wednesday.

“There is no word until now. It depends on the result of the review,” Lieutenant Colonel Ramon Zagala told reporters.


A re-investigation was ordered by military chief General Emmanuel Bautista after Cadet Jeff Aldrin Cudia was found to have lied on why he was late for a class.


Zagala could not say if Cudia, the salutatorian, would be able to make it to the March 16 graduation.

Cudia was also scheduled to submit his appeal before the board today, Wednesday.

“Cudia would be submitting his appeal and from there let us wait for the board to further examine his appeal and where to go next,” Zagala said.

This week, the Army, Air Force and Navy hosted reception dinners to 223 incoming Second Lieutenants, the graduating students of PMA Class of 2014. Cudia was not among them.
