MANILA - One of the respondents in the Guillo Servando hazing case is allegedly suffering from depression.

The camp of respondent Maria Teresa Dayanghirang claimed that she is now undergoing therapy to address her depression.

Dayanghirang attended Thursday's continuation of the Department of Justice's preliminary investigation into the case and filed her counter-affidavit.

Her camp requested the panel of prosecutors handling the case to prevent the media from covering the proceedings when she was about to subscribe to her counter-affidavit.

Two other respondents, Carl Francis Floresca and Jemar Pajarito also filed their counter-affidavits.

Dayanghirang, Floresa, and Pajarito urged the DOJ to junk the charges against them.

Pajarito, now with the DOJ Witness Protection Program (WPP), has been cooperating with the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI); Pajarito is hoping to turn witness for the prosecution.

The other respondents were given up to today to file their counter-affidavits; failure to file the same will be taken as a waiver on their defense.

The following is the complete list of respondents:

  • Cody Errol Morales
  • Daniel Paul Martin Bautista alias "Pope"
  • Kurt Michael Almazan
  • Luis Solomon Arevalo alias "Louie"
  • Carl Francis Loresca
