Members of the League of Filipino Students-UST and Anakbayan-UST commemorated the 16th death anniversary of Mark Welson Chua through a candle lighting ceremony at the Benavides Statue on March 17, Friday. Chua’s death was allegedly linked to his exposé regarding the corruption in the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) unit of UST back in 2001. His death served as a catalyst for the passage of Republic Act 9163 or the “National Service Training Program Act of 2001,” thus abolishing mandatory ROTC as a prerequisite for college graduation of male students.
