Atty. Rivera Explains the Reasons Why Government Officials are Responsible for Release of Kuwait Rescue Video


Veteran lawyer and prominent social media personality defender of Pres. Rody Duterte explained on his latest post the reasons why some government officials should be held responsible and liable for the release of the controversial Kuwait Rescue Video.


Atty. Rivera was allegedly bashed on social media by some major bloggers for his exposure of the possible liabilities among government officials in the controversial video as he cited Republic Act No. 3019 or the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act.

The veteran lawyer who is a well-known defender of Pres. Duterte even before he became the President, noted that due to the fact that some bloggers will never stop from attacking him on his critical comments against those people who were responsible for the spreading for the controversial Kuwait rescue video, he could do nothing but to cite some provisions under RA 3019.



Atty. Rivera highlights the provisions on Section 3 of RA 3019, particularly the provisions that says "Divulging valluable information of a confidential character, acquired by his office or by him on account of his official position to unauthorized persons, or releasing such information in advance of its authorized release date" which is clearly a violations allegedly committed by a government office in relation to the release of the Kuwait rescue video.

Here's the Complete Statement of Atty. Rivera:

AYAW NIYO TALAGA AKONG TIGILAN KAKA-BASH...

Sige. Ito sagot ko. Republic Act No. 3019 (Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act)

Section 3. Corrupt practices of public officers. In addition to acts or omissions of public officers already penalized by existing law, the following shall constitute corrupt practices of any public officer and are hereby declared to be unlawful:

(a) Persuading, inducing or influencing another public officer to perform an act constituting a violation of rules and regulations duly promulgated by competent authority or an offense in connection with the official duties of the latter, or allowing himself to be persuaded, induced, or influenced to commit such violation or offense.



(e) Causing any undue injury to any party, including the Government, or giving any private party any unwarranted benefits, advantage or preference in the discharge of his official administrative or judicial functions through manifest partiality, evident bad faith or gross inexcusable negligence. This provision shall apply to officers and employees of offices or government corporations charged with the grant of licenses or permits or other concessions.

(k) Divulging valuable information of a confidential character, acquired by his office or by him on account of his official position to unauthorized persons, or releasing such information in advance of its authorized release date

Isang batas pa lang yan. Hindi ko pa nasusuyod ang Revised Penal Code. At hindi ang rescue video ang magdidiin sa yo. Yung latest mo na video, sister. It is tantamount to a confession.

Mag-isip kasi.

Sige, bash pa more. The more bashes, the more laws I will research that you and your cohorts have violated.
