Ex-Pasig RTC judge on Sanchez case dares Panelo to resign

by | News

Aug. 28, 19 | 2:55 pm

Former Pasig City Regional Trial Court judge Harriet Demetriou, who handed down the seven life imprisonments to rape-slay convict Antonio Sanchez, slammed government officials for twisting the ‘Good Conduct Time Allowance’ law to allow Sanchez’ early release.

“Tini-twist nila na good conduct time allowance (GCTA) kasi matagal na daw si Sanchez doon na 25 years. Eh mabulok man siya doon, hindi siya qualified under the law unless the law is amended,” Demtriou told CNN Philippines.

She said that Bureau of Corrections Chief Nicanor Faeldon is also making a mockery of the justice system.

“Mga prison officials na huwag niyong palayain si Sanchez kasi guilty ‘yan ng committing ng heinous crime… Klarong klaro ang batas. Bakit hindi nila yan masunod? Bakit ipapalusot nila sa good conduct time allowance na hindi naman qualified?” she added.

The Pasig RTC judge also insisted that Presidential spokesperson and former legal counsel of Sanchez Sal Panelo intervened with his former client’s case.

“Hindi siya makakapagsabi na wala siyang alam sa pagpapalaya kay Sanchez, that is impossible. Presidential legal counsel siya,” Demetriou said.

The judge then dared Panelo to just quit his post.

“So, he actually fooled the people. He actually fooled the President. Mag-resign ka na lang, Panelo,” she said.
