MANILA, Philippines—The Makati City Police on Friday defended the alleged “slow investigation” on the death of hazing victim Guillo Cesar Servando.

Servando’s father, Aurelio, on Thursday went to the Makati police to monitor the turnover of the case and the pieces of evidence but lamented that the investigation was “quite slow for a father of a child who was killed.”

Speaking to reporters, Chief Senior Superintendent Manuel Lucban of the Makati City Police  said there was a delay in the filing of cases because they were still collaborating the statements of all the victims and suspects.

Although the two other victims were now out of danger, he said “the victims have not fully recovered.”
