JPE on the dismissal of Ongpin’s case

“The previous Senate president felt pressured to remark at the case.”

 I’ve learn the 12-page choice of the presiding pass judgement on, Honorable Romeo E. Agacita Jr. of the First Judicial Area of San Fernando Town, Los angeles Union, Department 27, now not as soon as however two times. I used to be inspired through his meticulous and lucid choice at the drug case towards Julian Robert S. Ongpin. If truth be told, he had no selection however to disregard the drug fees at the accused for alleged violation of Phase 11 of Republic Act No. 9165 now not just for the loss of possible purpose however for the mishandling of the SOCO (Scene of the Crime Operatives) of the case. This gave affordable doubt at the integrity of what’s referred to as “chain of custody rule,” underneath the legislation.Santa Banana, right here’s the remark of former Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile at the case:“I realized concerning the case of Julian Robert S. Ongpin for alleged violation of Phase 11 of Republic Act No. 9175 – the Complete Unhealthy Act of 2002. And I additionally learn completely the verdict of the presiding Pass judgement on, Honorable Romeo E. Agacita Jr. Of the First Judicial Area of San Fernando Town, Los angeles Union. I will have to say that Julian Robert S . Ongpin was once lucky in having one of these very even handed and succesful pass judgement on to be the only to check out his case.“The verdict may be very lucid and well-written. Pass judgement on Agacita Jr, meticulously analyzed the case step-by-step, in keeping with present and present precedents and jurisprudence, to reach at his choice to disregard the case towards Julian Robert S. Ongpin for the loss of possible purpose to Pass judgement on Agacita jr. is in reality a meritorious act of justice.”For any individual like Enrile to return out publicly at the choice of the pass judgement on on an overly outstanding case is a huge factor. I personally can’t however reward the pass judgement on for his step by step learn about resulting in the verdict to disregard outright the case for loss of possible purpose. Being a attorney myself, I do know that the instant there may be affordable doubt, as on the subject of Julian when the chain of custody was once damaged and violated, the integrity of the entire case collapses. Thus, the pass judgement on, as I again and again mentioned, needed to disregard it outright, my gulay!As each and every attorney is aware of, the instant there’s a affordable doubt at the integrity of the so-called chain of custody rule as supplied for through legislation, the case can’t be past doubt. I may also upload that the Division of Justice and the police SOCO may just be told a lesson or two on tips on how to maintain crime instances, particularly involving drug instances towards RA No. 9165.•••The endorsement of President Duterte of a Bong Cross-Sara Duterte tandem, to my thoughts, is a silly transfer. The President might suppose that he was once doing his daughter a want, however I see it as towards Sara. Why?Through endorsing Sara because the vice chairman of Bong Cross, the “alalay” of Duterte, other folks will in finding explanation why that the President is attempting to consolidate and monopolize energy in Davao Town. Within the first position, with Bong Cross as president, and with Sara as vice chairman, and with him (Duterte) as Senate president, there could be in Davao Town 3 of probably the most robust personalities within the nation . The opposition and critics of President Duterte will in finding purpose to assault and criticize him.The tandem of Bongbong Marcos and Sara is bold. This is a successful mixture. Because of this, I imagine that the aspiration of a man-servant of Duterte like Bong Cross may also harm and lower into the runaway lead of Bongbong for president as proven in all ballot surveys. And with Sara as vice chairman of Bongbong, as I’ve been pronouncing within the vernacular, “Tapos na ang boksing.” Wanna wager?I’ve misplaced all my admire and admiration for Bong Cross. He has been, at best possible, a devoted alalay. Cross, as president, will at all times be Duterte’s sidekick. That’s now not handiest hilarious, however a large embarrassment for the rustic.•••

With President Duterte operating for the Senate, the Senate race turns into tight. As of now the Magic 12 circle of would-be senators is already very tight. Best 4 inexperienced persons have up to now entered the Magic Circle: broadcaster Raffy Tulfo, Mark Villar, former Vice President Jojo Binay and film actor Robin Padilla. With the access of Duterte within the race, there’ll handiest be seven slots left to be had for returning senators and reelectionists.Thus far, the returning senators who’re main the race are Chiz Escudero, governor of Sorsogon, Loren Legarda, Consultant of Vintage and deputy speaker, former Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano, reelectionist Migz Zubiri, Riza Hontiveros, Jinggoy Estrada and Joel Villanueva. Clinging to the twelfth the thirteenth position are Dick Gordon, Win Gatchalian and Leila de Lima.In my opinion, I would love Dick Gordon to go back to the Senate to proceed his chairmanship of the Senate Blue-Ribbon committee.Santa Banana, if his “alalay” Bong Cross turns into President, and Duterte’s daughter Sara as Vice President and with himself as Senate President, Davao Town would nook the 3 very best nationwide positions of the republic! This is, if the persons are loopy sufficient.•••OCTA Analysis Staff is predicting that through December subsequent month, Metro Manila might already be on Alert Degree 1, the least of well being protocols and restrictions.Many of us are taking a look ahead to this now not handiest to benefit from the Christmas season however to look ahead to a Satisfied New 12 months. Frankly, despite the fact that, I’d relatively now not have Alert Degree One: We might simply see any other COVID-19 surge after the vacations on account of overcrowding, and easing of well being protocols. I’m hoping now not. My gulay, let’s now not be complacent about COVID-19, an enemy we can’t see. My spouse and I at our age would relatively keep house. Our buying groceries days are over and going to department stores is an workout in futility on account of the ravages of outdated age. Go away that to the younger and wholesome.On the subject of a decision between warning and taking dangers, my spouse and I are at all times at the aspect of additional warning. Sure, the day by day instances of COVID-19 are actually low however, there’s at all times the opportunity of any other surge. •••The Presidential Conversation Operation Place of business (PCOO) will have to release an enormous knowledge and training marketing campaign for the advantage of the folks now that we’re taking a look into the imaginable “new standard” subsequent 12 months – what to do and what to not do.I’m afraid that with the opportunity of going into Alert Degree One, other folks might suppose that we have got already conquer the COVID-19 pandemic. A long way from it, within the wake of news that the COVID-19 pandemic shall be with us subsequent 12 months.There is not any replace for warning.
