THETALK.NG learnt that Jose Rizal University announces that John Amores has been removed from their men’s basketball team.
He has also been suspended from his classes and required to do community service.
“After a thorough evaluation, the board is convinced that additional sanctions should be imposed against him as part of the internal processes on discipline observed by the school,” the statement read.
“Contingent with this action: (i) all privileges accruing to Mr. Amores as a student-athlete have been canceled; and (ii) based on the Student Manual of the University, he has been further meted out the penalty of suspension from his classes and has been required to undergo community service.”
In a report of 24 Oras, JRU also said that has set up “a program with medical specialists in sports mental health and wellness for our athletes to address the difficulties of handling the mixed challenges of athletic competition, academics, and personal issues.”
