Te defends ABS-CBN reporter-abogado from Calida’s attack
Former Supreme Court spokesperson Theodore Te expressed his support to ABS-CBN reporter and abogado Mike Navallo, who was personally attacked by Solicitor General Jose Calida on Monday.
Navallo and other reporters were tailing Calida for an ambush interview after the former filed a quo warranto petition against ABS-CBN.
Pressed for answers by Navallo, Calida replied, “Palagi mo ‘kong binabatan ah, abogado ka rin pala eh.”
But Te on Twitter defended Navallo, who’s also his former student at the University of the Philippines College of Law.
“@mikenavallo, known to us at UP Law then as Jobert Navallo (UP Law ’09), is a better lawyer than he is a reporter and he is one of the best reporters I know,” he said.
