Law professor-student love affair

By |


In our justice system, rich and powerful litigants have a big edge over their poor opponents.

What the late  President Ramon Magsaysay said that “those who have less in life should have more in law” is just  lip service.

When money talks, even the judges listen and defer to the “highest bidder.”

I am not accusing the Court of Appeals justices who ruled in favor of the Reyes brothers—former Palawan Gov. Joel and Coron Mayor Marjo—of receiving bribe money, but the public perception is that money and influence “talked.”

(There is a whale of a difference between accusing somebody outright of being a thief, and saying that people think he is a thief)

The appellate court invalidated the findings of a second panel created by Justice Secretary Leila de Lima to reinvestigate the January 2011 murder in Puerto Princesa City of environmentalist and radio commentator Gerry Ortega.

The second panel’s findings led to murder charges  filed against the Reyes brothers  and the issuance of arrest warrants against them.

The CA decision may eventually lead to the quashing of the arrest warrants.

There is  talk that the  brothers have spent a huge amount of money on their case and pulled some strings in the appellate court.

One of the appellate court justices is a close relative of the accused, according to  a court insider.

*  * *

And so, the search for the mastermind or masterminds in the murder of the famous radio commentator in Palawan goes on.

Joel and Marjo Reyes were the alleged masterminds in Ortega’s murder.

Now that the Court of Appeals has said that the findings of the DOJ second panel were not valid, the court—in effect—said the Reyes brothers were not involved in Ortega’s murder.

The first DOJ panel exonerated the Reyes brothers, and there were talks that “money talked” in the decision.

A law professor and managing partner of a prominent Makati law firm is in trouble if he doesn’t settle with his estranged wife.

The wife came to see me at my “Isumbong mo kay Tulfo” office to complain that the hubby has ceased supporting their two kids, aged 2 and 9.

She said the cause of the break-up is a pretty girl who is her husband’s student in law school.

The husband is a professor in two very prominent law schools.

The 38-year-old woman—he is 40 years old—threatens to divulge all her husband’s “case-fixing” activities to the media.

She described her husband as a “bagman” of his law firm.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

    Saudi beheads two for murderBy AFP | AFP – Tue, Nov 27, 2012EmailPrintRELATED CONTENTView PhotoSaudi security personnel patrol near Riyadh, 2006. Saudi authorities beheaded two …Saudi authorities on Tuesday beheaded two nationals for murder, including one who stabbed his wife to death and burned her corpse, the interior ministry said.Ali Mohammed Mahrazi was convicted of stabbing his wife Hunayna Khabrani repeatedly before he “poured kerosene on her body and set it on fire until it was charred,” the ministry said in a statement carried by SPA state news agency.He then cleared the traces of his crime and complained to police that his wife has disappeared, but a probe revealed that he was the culprit, it said.He was beheaded by the sword in the southwestern city of Jizan.In another case, Ahmed Mahmud al-Yazidi was beheaded in the city of Mecca over shooting dead another man, Ayed Awad al-Yazidi.The beheadings bring to 72 the number of people executed so far this year in the ultra-conservative kingdom, where 79 people were put to death in 2011, according to Amnesty International.Rape, murder, apostasy, armed robbery and drug trafficking are all punishable by death under its strict version of sharia, or Islamic law.

    Court of Appeals is very corrupt.  My relative had a good case against a landlord years back and got a favorable decision at the lower court.  Then the moneyed landlord used her money to bribe the CA and so the decision was reversed.  Such could have happened to the Reyes brothers.  The government now has Supreme Court to make the final decision.  Let’s see how and how much these Reyeses could bribe the SC Justices.

    There are some really Pretty young ladies (in the office, in our social life like the badminton or tennis court, even church activity, etc.) who are attracted to 40ish men. They are intelligent, young, personable, beautiful and, since tao lang naman tayo, one will need really strong morals to resist the ultimate temptation. (how can I ever resist?) Talk to those who have been married for 20, 30 or even 40 years (specially the men, ask your Lolo) they will all tell you that there will come a time when you will be tempted or meet a member of the opposite sex that will test your marriage vows. Best scenario, you walk away from the girl. Likely scenario 1, a little harmless flirting. Likely scenario 2, you give in (that is have sex), but soon after realize your mistake, break up, wife never knows. Worst scenario, you give in, but fall deeply in love with the girl, wreck your family as your wife finds out, your kids grow up in a disfunctional family, which , unfortunately happened to the lawyer. But, sometimes, all is fair in love (and war). You really don’t want it to happen but you just fall in love at the wrong place, wrong time, right girl. Sad for the kids.

        LOL….even a single mother in-law and few sisters-in-law could be too bad for Filipino men…

      they all fall in love because it is a lovely young girl.  i never heard of anyone falling in love to an ugly sickly old woman.  if i hear about this or i see it in real life of someone falling in love to a ugly sickly old woman. then i could believe the excuses this people say about ruin their life in the name of love but i trully doubt it.  this people did what they did because they are weak disgusting people who don’t deserve to be called a friend or a partner.  and they deserve to be misserable their whole life because of what they done.

    I think this attorney represents the wicked majority of the profession. The lawyers’ mantra “how much is there for me”.

    Crocodiles have the same DNA with lawyers.
