Tony Leachon, former special adviser to the National Task Force against Covid- 19, would rather choose a leader who is more right than real.

In a post on Twitter on Friday, Leachon disagreed with Senator Manny Pacquiao’s tweet that “People would rather follow a leader who is always real than a leader that’s always right.”

Being right, the cardiologist argued, is the “foundation of authentic leadership.”

He furthered: “If you have the choice between being right and being real, choose being right ALWAYS.”

To recall, Leachon was forced to resign from the government’s anti-coronavirus task force for criticizing how the Department of Health handled the coronavirus pandemic in the country.

May kinalaman sa trabaho? Abogado survives attack in Iloilo

One of the lawyers in the petitions seeking before the Supreme Court (SC) to declare the Anti-Terrorism Law as unconstitutional has been attacked in Iloilo City Wednesday night (March 3), the National Union of People’s Lawyers (NUPL) said.

NUPL Visayas vice president Rene Estopacio identified the victim as his assistant vice president Angelo Karlo Guillen who sustained stab wounds in the head and shoulder after being attacked by unidentified men.

Estopacio who condemned the attack asked authorities “to promptly and properly investigate the attempt on the life of Atty. Guillen.”

“Since June 2016, NUPL has recorded at least 54 killings of lawyers and judges that are prima facie related their work,” he lamented.

“In December 2020, the Integrated Bar of the Philippines, NUPL, and various legal groups raised concerns over the increasing and alarming incidents of attacks on lawyers before the Supreme Court,” he added.

Aside from being a lawyer in the petitions opposed to the Anti-Terrorism Law, Estopacio noted that Guillen has been representing activists and human rights defenders facing trumped up charges in court.
