In a statement following its meeting today, the UP Board of Regents (BOR) apologized for the posts made by Regent Frederick Mikhail Farolan in social media.
The BOR statement reads, “We apologize to the officials, staff, and athletes of the Ateneo de Manila University and to the UP community for any anxiety Regent Farolan’s statements may have caused. We also deeply regret the dampening of the euphoria of UP reaching the UAAP finals.”
In a Facebook post that has since been taken down, Farolan wrote something that appeared to threaten members of the Ateneo Blue Eagles. “Sayang hindi kumpleto ang players ng Ateneo sa Wednesday. Tatlo injured. Pili na kung sinu-sino mga yon,” he wrote.
In the same statement, the BOR said that it is withdrawing its recommendation for Farolan’s reappointment to the BOR.
