Di ako biased! Leonen says his loyalty lies with the truth

Sharing is caring!

After accusations that Supreme Court Associate Justice Marvic Leonen had turned against Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno and even asked her to resign, the abogado recently made cryptic tweets that may be his indirect response.

“I have sworn no loyalty to any king, queen, chief or political color. My job is to do what is right based on the truth that I see. My job is not to sacrifice justice for political expediency. Those who know how I have lived know this. #BeCritical #ServeThePeople,” he said in a series of Tweets posted on Saturday, March 3.

The abogado stressed that things shouldn’t be seen only in black and white, and that creating and spreading false narratives against a person is like wasting life’s gift of human empathy and kindness.

He also hinted that he will not hold a friend to a standard lower than he would himself “and others in public service”, lest he lose his self-respect.

“So, what is your truth? Is it what you have only heard or is it what you actually know? How do you know what you think you know?” he said.

“Half truths, or facts taken out of its full context, is not truth. It is deception. We should learn the grace of patience to allow the full context to lay itself out before we make our own judgments,” he added.
