Parang lumaki sa kalye! Gadon slams Saguisag for calling Sol Gen Duterte’s lapdog
Lawyer Larry Gadon slammed former senator Rene Saguisag for calling the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) a “tuta” of the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte.
The lawyer of Peter Joemel Advincula alias Bikoy pointed out the name-calling was uncalled for considering it was done during the preliminary investigation of the sedition complaint filed against Vice President Leni Robredo and 35 others over their alleged involvement in the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” videos.
“I am surprised that Atty Saguisag would even resort to gutter language as if he is speaking before a communist rally and not in a formal legal proceeding,” Gadon said.
During the preliminary investigation, Saguisag questioned the presence of Assistant Solicitor General Angelita Miranda as the lead counsel of the complainant, the Philippine National Police-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG).
“The OSG should be the tribune of the people, not tuta of this administration,” Saguisag told prosecutors conducting the preliminary investigation.
Saguisag represented during the proceedings one of the respondents, Sen. Risa Hontiveros, as legal counsel.
