Tom Villarin backs De Lima’s complaints vs RTC judge

0 127

Tom Villarin believes Senator Leila De Lima should be allowed to walk free after the court judge misappreciated her pleadings.

The former Akbayan party-list representative renewed his call to free the ex-Justice secretary and pointed out the mistakes committed by the regional trial court judge who is handling one of her two remaining drug cases.

“De Lima, in her MR for denial of demurrer to evidence, noted that 60% of court order just summarized prosecution’s narrative & their motion for bail and demurrer were reduced to just half a page of enumeration and even erroneously referenced as petition for bail!,” the politiko said, finding it absurd.
