Bad na ugali, bad pa grammar: Gadon told to fix spelling and grammar first instead of cursing others

0 770

Atty. Larry Gadon apparently does not only have a problem with behavior but also with language proficiency.

Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Zarate slammed the lawyer after cursing and sticking out his middle finger at several protesters expressing support for Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno during the oral debates on the ouster petition against her in Baguio City last Tuesday.

“I can now understand why this person usually resorts to name-calling kasi wala siyang argumento na maibigay na maayos,” said Zarate.

“I-fix muna niya yung kanyang spelling at grammar bago siya mag-aastang expert dahil siya nga mismo ‘yung finile niya sa SC na amicus curiae comment, wala nga sa rules. Nag-aasta siyang eksperto pero di niya rin alam ang kanyang ginagawa,” he added.

He noted that it was not the first time the lawyer cussed in public.

He believes that Gadon should be held accountable for his actions.

Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) President Abdiel Fajardo earlier said that Gadon might be cited in an ethics complaint.

Gadon, however, showed no remorse for his action saying that he was not cowed and even threatened to file a disbarment case against IBP officials who support the Chief Justice.

“Because their act of support can be considered as abetting the illegal acts of Sereno, they are upholding the violation of the constitution by Sereno therefore they are also liable for violating the code of ethics,” he said in a statement.

Gadon is facing two separate disbarment cases. One in 2016 for saying he opposed the Bangsamoro Basic Law and making remarks seen as “hateful” to Muslims and the other one this year for his supposedly baseless accusations against the embattled Chief Justice.
