Sex Scandal Rocks Cebu School

CEBU CITY - Female students of the University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) in this city have been told not to wear their uniforms for now as the school administration and authorities are addressing the sex video scandal that hit the university.

The suspension of the wearing of school uniforms was implemented after female students complaint that they have been ridiculed and subjected to harassment following the uploading of a sex video scandal that involved a uniform-wearing USJ-R student having sex with her supposed boyfriend.

"Students, faculty, personnel, and alumni have begun reporting incidents of harassment, bullying, and ridicule both online and in real time. It eventually compelled the school to suspend the requirement of wearing uniforms to prevent further trauma and embarrassment of all Josenians," said University President Rev. Fr. Enrico Peter Silab, OAR.

Silab, however, said the school stands behind the student, and that the student will still be allowed to graduate if she is qualified to graduate this March.

"We have no prohibitions at all, if she is qualified to march, she can march," said Fr. Silab, as he stressed that the student can continue her studies if she wants to.

The administration of the USJ-R also warned bullies and those who will ridicule students in line with the sex video scandal that the university is ready to file charges against anyone who will harass its students.

"Bullying is a crime, harassment is a crime. We have to protect the rights of our students. Any student who will complain of harassment, and show proof will be provide with free legal assistance," said Silab.

In a press conference yesterday, Silab said the wearing of university uniform will resume on Monday, as he urged female USJ-R students to remain proud and continue to uphold the values of the university even amidst the existing scandal.
