Roque noted that he would prefer that he says all of these things when he is no longer a magistrate. The abogado noted that opinions on these matters are limited to those who are policymakers or part of the legislative.
The abogado said that these are against the canons of judicial ethics. He stated that this can be elevated to the Supreme Court and whatever agreement can be questioned by the justices. Roque noted that he can only talk via his decisions and nothing else.
