Lawyer’s Mistake

The Mancao testimony in the court was barred from the press.

His lawyer, however, made false remarks to the press regarding the masterminds of a murder, which were subsequently printed all over the papers. It appears that Mancao never said that Senator Lacson and then President Estrada ordered the killing of Dacer and his driver, Corbito.

This was a mistake because Mancao never made such a statement. The lawyer, Topacio, can be disbarred for this. Senator Lacson will now file charges against him.
