Alcantara family plans to sue Ateneo for parking mess: Amiel Alcantara’s Death

Alcantara family plans to sue Ateneo for parking mess

Amiel Alcantara’s family is set to file a “breach of contract” charge against Ateneo de Manila University (AdMU) for allegedly failing to solve the campus’s parking scheme problems, the family’s lawyer announced Friday.

Rafael Aquino, lawyer of the the Alcantaras, said the family is dissatisfied with the Ateneo’s “turtle’s pace” action in correcting safety lapses in the school’s parking and traffic scheme.

He explained that the “breach of contract” charge will be filed against Ateneo because the school is not only morally responsible, but legally liable, for the students within its grounds.

According to Amiel’s father, Jose Fernando “Pepe” Alcantara, Ateneo’s decision to beef up the number of security guards is merely a “band-aid solution,” and that the school’s actions lacked determination, a time table, and scope.

He said he wants to see Ateneo implement fast and comprehensive safety measures around the campus like constructing road humps in parking areas, improving the parking plan, fixing the sidewalks, and hiring more crossing guards instead of security guards.

    what has happened to this one?

    i hope the alcantaras pursue this. i completely support this move.

    my wife has been to ateneo recently and she said not much has been done at that parking lot. maybe the only way to get ateneo to act properly is to sue them.

    i can understand the sentiments of the alcantaras. after what happened to their son, the least that ateneo can do is change things in a dramatic way at the parking lot. dapat lang na yun ang expectations nila. siguro i will feel the same way kung nangyari sa kin yun.

    my wife who has been to the ateneo has told me the changes the school has done is best described as “band-aid solutions”, same way mr. alcantara has described it.

    what has happened to the school i graduated from?
