MANILA, Philippines --- Malacaang commended Tuesday the resignation of Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Superintendent Lt. Gen. Ronnie Evangelista over the death of a freshman cadet due to hazing, calling the move a "right step" to preserving the integrity of the state's premier military school. Evangelista, citing the "tradition of command responsibility," stepped down as PMA head following the death of Cadet 4th Class Darwin Dormitorio. The 20-year-old cadet, who would have been a member of PMA Class 2023, died last September 18 from cardiac arrest secondary to internal injuries due to supposed maltreatment within the campus.
