THREE days after the shooting incident involving Letran player Franz Dysam, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) finally came up with a stand on the incident.
In a statement, the country’s oldest collegiate league said it `condemns the attempt on the life of Colegio de San Juan de Letran men’s basketball player Franz Dysam and the killing of Ms. Joanne Sordan.’
“Such violence has no place in our society,” added the statement.
At the same time, the NCAA encouraged people to cooperate in helping the police solve the crime and give justice to the victims.
“We are appealing to those who may have any information on the incident to come out and help the authorities to bring those responsible to justice,” part of the statement read.
“The member schools of the NCAA have always held the welfare of their students with utmost importance. It is in this regard that we join Colegio de San Juan de Letran community in seeking the immediate resolution of the case and praying for the speedy recovery of Franz.
“We also extend our condolences to the family of Ms. Joanne and pray for her repose.”
The entire Letran community was quick to condemn the incident less than 24 hours after it occurred.
In an official statement, the Dominican school stated, “The Letran community is behind Franz in his rally. All assistance, including moral and spiritual, is given him. He is consistently being prayed for especially by the Letran priests.
“Letran officials pray for the speedy recovery of Franz and wish for the fast resolution of the case. We also pray for the eternal repose of the soul of Joanne Sordan.”
