Case Title: Quisora HAR
Case: Harassment/Physical Injury
Name of Victim: Ernie Gonzales Quisora
Date of Incident: December 20, 2013
Place of Incident: Marikina Polytechnic College, Marikina City
Alleged Perpetrators: Mr. Joseph Quiles
Motive: One of the Alleged Instigators of Student Protest Action
Account of the Incident:
Ernie Quisora, 20 years of age, of 57 B.G. Malina Street, Parang, a student of Marikina Polytechnic College taking up Industrial Technology Major in Automotive and a Student Council volunteer, suffered minor injuries during a scuffle between him and a college professor.
On December 20, 2013, at around 8:30am, Quisora decided to enter the school premises while a protest action is being set-up by some members and officers of the faculty association of the Marikina Polytechnic College. The said protest is in relation to the additional working hour imposed by the school officials to the members of the faculty, and the absence of a democratic process by which these policies went through without any consultation.
The Security guards on-duty inspected Quisora’s belongings and found a black t-shirt inside his bag. The security guards confiscated the t-shirt and told Quisora that it is prohibited inside the campus. He then asked the security guards, why it is not allowed? Quisora further explained that he will be wearing the black t-shirt as a replacement after his subject “Metallic and Solid Painting AT222”. Apparently, the security guards alleged that Quisora is one of students who advocate and backing the campaign protest of the faculty and that they will be wearing the black t-shirt as a sign of support.
While both were arguing, a professor named Joseph Quiles approached them.
Quisora told him what the security guards did. He added that they have no right to confiscate his t-shirt since it was “wash day”, and he can wear any attire he wants as long as it is appropriate and proper.
The heated argument started between Quiles and Quisora. Moments later, Quiles grabbed Quisora’s shirt from his chest and pulled him back and forth repeatedly. Not satisfied with what he did, Quiles snatched and snapped the lace of his school identification card while wearing with around his neck. Several students and teachers witnessed the incident. Quisora suffered a bruise to his left hand. He also felt a pain to his nape.
A few days after the incident, Quisora again encountered Quiles on several occasions. Quiles accussed him of being a liar, arrogant and discourteous to school administrators. These were done in front of students. In one occasion it happened in front of Quisora’s teacher. Quiles also threatened Quisora and told that he will “drop” him from his subject.
Quisora is now planning to file a formal complaint to concerned government agencies, and at the Marikina City prosecutor’s office for appropriate charges.
Quisora is an advocate of student rights and welfare and an active volunteer of the Marikina Polytechnic College Student Council.
REQUESTED ACTION:
Please write a letter to the following authorities, calling on them to initiate inquiries into the case of harassment and physical injuries obtained by Ernie Quisora, a student of the Marikina Polytechnic College, and urge concerned agencies to immediately intervene and resolve the case.

I am writing to draw your attention regarding the case of Ernie Quisora, 20 years of age, currently residing at 57 B.G. Malina Street, Parang, a student of Marikina Polytechnic College who experienced harassment and suffered minor injuries at the hands of his professor.
I have learned that a heated argument transpired between Mr. Joseph Quiles and Quisora. Quiles grabbed Quisora’s shirt from his chest and pulled him back and forth repeatedly. Not satisfied with what he did, Quiles snatched and snapped the lace of his school identification card while wearing with around his neck. Several students and teachers witnessed the incident.

Quisora decided to enter the school premises while a protest action is being set-up by some members and officers of the faculty association of the Marikina Polytechnic College. The said protest is in relation to the additional working hour imposed by the school officials to the members of the faculty, and the absence of a democratic process by which these policies went through without any consultation.
It was also brought to my attention that before the incident occurred, the Security guards on-duty inspected Quisora’s belongings and found a black t-shirt inside his bag. The security guards confiscated the t-shirt and told Quisora that it is prohibited inside the campus. He then asked the security guards why it is not allowed even Quisora explained that he will be wearing the black t-shirt as a replacement after his subject “Metallic and Solid Painting AT222”. Apparently, the security guards alleged that Quisora is one of students who advocate and backing the campaign protest of the faculty and that they will be wearing the black t-shirt as a sign of support.

He added that they have no right to confiscate his t-shirt since it was “wash day”, and he can wear any attire he wants as long as it is appropriate and proper.  At that point, the heated argument started. A scuffle transpired and Quisora suffered physical injuries.
At present, Quisora is now planning to file a formal complaint to concerned government agencies, and at the Marikina City prosecutor’s office for appropriate charges.
Quisora is an advocate of student rights and welfare and an active volunteer of the Marikina Polytechnic College Student Council.
Therefore, I humbly urge you to initiate a probe into the said case and appropriate action must be done accordingly.
I look forward to you urgent action.
Respectfully yours,
