HINDI pa malalaman ng mga estudyante ng Pakultad ng Sining at Panitik (AB) ang hatol ukol sa nawawalang student fund na tinatayang nagkakahalaga ng P50,000, ayon sa inilabas na anunsyo ng kanilang konseho (ABSC).

Taliwas ito sa inilabas na pahayag ng ABSC isang linggo na ang nakalipas ukol sa nangyaring “silent protest” noong Agosto 14 na ilalabas na ang hatol ngayong linggo.

Ipinaliwanag sa opisyal na pahayag ng ABSC na pinagpaliban muna ni Asst. Dean at Student Welfare and Development Board (SWDB) coordinator Narcisa Tabirara ang desisyon dahil sa pagkakaantala ng faculty review pagkatapos magkaroon ng urgent meeting at ng faculty retreat noong isang linggo.

Matatandaang nawala ang nasabing pondo halos isang taon na ang nakakaraan sa mismong ABSC office na para sana sa iba’t ibang proyektong inilatag ng Konseho tulad ng Athena Cup, NGO Fair, at general assembly staff ng konseho.

Ayon rin sa pahayag, sa huling linggo pa ng Agosto inaasahang maiipapaalam ang desisyon dahil sa pagtatalaga ng bagong Regent ng kolehiyo. Isa ang Regent sa dapat pumirma sa pinal na desisyon.

Tumatawag rin ang ABSC na panatilihin ang pagiging bihilante ng mga estudyante hanggang sa malaman ang hatol para lalong mahanap ang hustisya sa nasabing isyu.

Ayon kay Marie Jann Klaire Lazo, ang pangulo ng konseho noong nawala ang pondo, hindi masisisi ang SWDB sa mabagal na paglabas ng desisyon dahil na rin sa marami silang ginagawa.

“[K]aya ‘di maharap agad [ang] mga papers na maglalabas ng full account ng [nangyari] pero alam ko may naabot naman [doon] sa mga panel investigations namin noon,” ayon kay Lazo sa kanyang panayam sa TomasinoWeb.

Isa rin sa Lazo sa nasabing nasa opisina ng ABSC noong nawala ang P50,000, kasama sina dating treasurer Julienne Avila, Chief-of-Staff Emmanuel Arre, at mga miyembro ng Board Committee na sina Patricia Umali, Richard Umali, at Jancis Valera.

Kapag napatunayang sila ang nagkasala, masasabing nilabag nila ang nasa punto A, B, at F ng Article 7 Section 2 ng kanilang konstitusyon na nagpapaliwanag ng grounds of impeachment sa kadahilanan ng accountability ng mga opisyal ng konseho.

Sinasabi sa mga punto na maaaring matanggal sa pwesto ang isang opisyal kung (a) nilabag nila ang konstitusyon, (b) ang hindi pagtupad ng trabaho bilang isang student council officer, at (f) ang hindi pag-iingat ng paghahawak o pangungurakot ng pondo o mga kagamitan ng organisasyon.
