Para siya’ng hindi dean! Guevarra rebuffs Chel Diokno
Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra on Tuesday downplayed the claim of opposition senatorial candidate Chel Diokno that the “legal system was eroding” especially during President Duterte’s war on drugs.
He issued the statement in response to Diokno’s recent appeal for help to the international community over the eroding justice system in the country during an event sponsored by the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs in Vienna, Austria on President Duterte’s drug war.
“The negativist statement fails to give any credit to what our legal and judicial system has accomplished, and is quite surprising to hear from a law dean like him,” Guevarra said in a SMS.
