Author of the book entitled "Simplified Law on Libel in the Philippines"
I feel honored as I was saluted by Mr. Percy Lapid, commentator of Lapidfire program over DWIZ, for winning his libel case filed by Atty. Rogel Gatchalian, who is now the Collector of the Port of Manila, Bureau of Customs.
What is so special about the case is that it is one of defamation that may be considered as extremely contemptuous against a public official.
In the article written by Lapid for his opinion column entitled "Kalampag", he called Atty. Gatchalian "gago," "tolongges," "atorni no case," "bobo" and the like.
