TP Reveals Reasons Why Chel Diokno Failed in the Writ of Kalikasan Case Filed Against Pres. Duterte

One of the country's most popular blogger and supporter of Pres. Rody Duterte on social media, Thinking Pinoy claimed that former senatorial bet Chel Diokno failed on their controversial Writ of Kalikasan case filed against Pres. Rody Duterte.


According to Thinking Pinoy, "Sa sobrang sipag ni Chel Diokno, hanggang yung hindi niya kliyente, nire-represent?"



The statement of TP or RJ Nieto in real life came out after the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) withdrew their case against the Philippine President as he revealed the complete chronology of events in the Writ of Kalikasan case.

The veteran blogger revealed that the Writ of Kalikasan petition was filed by IBP on behalf of the fishermen as they alleged that Atty. Chel Diokno and Raj Palacios as the lawyers of the petitioners.

During the first hearing of the case, the Supreme Court asked the two lawyers to present the Judicial Affivadit of the petitioners which is considered as a core requirement in the case but they could not provide.

In the next hearing the reasons of the absence of Judicial Affidavit was discovered. According to SolGen Calida, who served as the government's lawyer, the Writ of Kalikasan case was filed without consent of the 19 fishermen who were listed in the list of petitioners.



Read the Complete Expose of Thinking Pinoy:

SA SOBRANG SIPAG NI CHEL DIOKNO, HANGGANG YUNG HINDI NIYA KLIYENTE, NIRE-REPRESENT?

Inurong na ng IBP ang petisyon para sa Writ of Kalikasan na sinampa sa SC laban sa pamahalaan, matapos mapag-alamang hindi pala pinahintulutan ng mga mangingisda na magsampa ang IBP ng kaso para rito.

Ganito ang basic chronology ng mga pangyayari:

1. Nagsampa ng petition for Writ of Kalikasan laban sa Duterte Administration ang IBP on behalf ng mga mangingisda. Diumano'y abogado ng mga petitioner na mangingisda sina Chel Diokno at Raj Palacios.

2. Nag-hearing tungkol rito noong umpisa ng July, kung saan ginisa ng mga Supreme Court Justices sina Diokno at Palacios dahil, among other reasons, walang judicial affidavit (J. A.) ang mga mangingisdang nagreklamo. Core requirement para sa petition ang mga JA.



3. Sa sumunod na hearing lumitaw ang dahilan kung bakit wala palang JA. Ayon kay SolGen Calida na siya namang abogado ng gobyerno, isinampa ang reklamo nang walang pahintulot mula sa 19 sa mga nakalistang mangingisda sa petition.

4. Bawal ang ginawa nina Diokno at Palacios na pag-represent sa kliyente nang walang pahintulot at punishable ito ng suspension or disbarment.

5. Naghugas-kamay si Diokno sa harap ng korte nang sabihin niyang collaborating counsel lang siya at hindi siya ang lead counsel ng kaso, which basically meant na he threw his co-counsel (at mas junior na abogadong si) Raj Palacios under the bus dahil dalawa lang naman silang abogado ng petitioner. That is, kung hindi lead counsel si Chel, e di si Raj yun.

6. Inamin ni Palacios na di man lang niya nakikita pa ang kahit sino sa mga mangingisda. Inamin naman ni Diokno na tatatlo sa humigit-kumulang 20 na mga mangingisda ang nakausap niya nang personal. Medyo uminit pa nga ang ulo ni Associate Justice Leonen dahil sa pagkakamali ng dalawang ito.



7. Madali sanang naresolba ang issue ng representation without authority Kung may naipakita lang na attorney-client representation agreement between Diokno+Palacios at mga mangingisda pero so far, wala pang inilalabas na ganitong dokumento.

8. Nag-motion sina Diokno para mabigyan ng panahong makipag-usap sa mga kliyenteng mangingisda at tila pinagbigyan naman ito ng hukuman.

9. Matapos ang ilang araw, binawi ng mga petitioner ang petition. Wala na baleng Writ of Kalikasan plea vs the government dahil rito.

10. Nagpahiwatig si SolGen Calida na maaari niyang habulin sina Diokno ng Administrative Case for suspension/disbarment dahil sa ginawa ng mga ito. Sa kabila ng pagbawi ng Writ of Kalikasan petition, puwede pa rin itong gawin ni Calida.

Grabe, nakakaloka.
