Members of the group ‘Duterte Youth’ will file cases of ‘unjust vexation’ and ‘theft’ against celebrity activist Jim Paredes after they were involved in an argument during the People Power celebrations.
Private lawyer Lorenzo Gadon volunteered to own up the case of the Duterte Youth, and praising them for standing up over Paredes.
“I will take up the case that may be filed,” Mr. Gadon said
"Buong-buo ang posibleng kaso kay Paredes. Maaaring kasuhan siya ng unjust vexation kasi pinahiya niya 'yung mga bata, pati na rin ang theft, kasi ninakaw nila yung tarp ng grupo," Gadon said.
"Gusto lang niyang sumikat ulit dahil isa na siyang laos na artista. Kataka-taka na mga bata ang gusto niyang kadebatehan. Kakasuhan siya ng unjust vexation at theft dahil 'yung mga tarpaulin na hinablot niya hindi naman sa kanya 'yun," Gadon said.
One of the Members of Duterte Youth Chair Ronald Cardema said they wanted to attend the protests since they were being held by groups who, they believed, were against the Duterteadministration.
"We just wanted to show our support to [President Rodrigo Duterte]. EDSA is not under any one group. Paano naging masama na magpakita kami doon at magpakitang suporta sa Presidente?" Cardema said.
"We were going to Luneta, but we decided that it was not the usual EDSA celebration, it was a gathering of anti-Duterte [demonstrators], and they want Duterte out of Malacañang. We wanted toshow our support for our President," Cardema said
"Hindi naman kami sa shrine, wala rin kami sa sidewalk. Nandun kami sa kalsada, our audience there were commuters, because we believe many Flipinos traveling along EDSA support the President. Nagulat na lang kami na lumapit si Jim Paredes, making funny faces, saying trolls kami, robots kami, gusto niyang makipag-argue, makipag-debate, pero ayaw naman naming makipag-debate, gusto lang naming ipakita sa mga tao sa EDSA that there’s a pocket of support there for the President."
"Maya-maya, hawak namin 'yung tarp. Bigla kaming, 'yung mga nakapalibot kay Jim Paredes, bigla kaming hinataw sa tiyan tapos kinuha yung tarpaulin. We were hit on the stomach to distract us from holding the tarpaulin tapos kinuha na 'yung tarpaulin," he added.
