THIS BLOGGER ASKS YOUR PRAYERS AGAINST HIRED GUNS.
This is the lawyer-blogger who has been charged in that P40-million libel suit of Janet Lim-Napoles. This is just his plea to all Filipinos who love justice for the wrong done on the people's money thru Pork Barrel, Malampaya Gas Fund, Agricultre (ACEF) Fund, and Fertilizer Fund.
He and all the rest who take on the risks and challenges in exposing the P10-billion pork barrel thievery need prayers for their life's safety.
He believes that cases are not sufficient to cause them much concern. What they fear about is Napoles has been reported to have hired guns to kill those who caused miseries on her, their daughter and their family.
It is recalled that Atty. Levito Baligod, the lawyer of those who blew the whistle and provided evidence on how Napoles manipulated to pocket the P10-billion pork barrel, revealed that a P25-million contract was put up to hire a group of assassins to kill Justice Secretary Leila De Lima, NBI chief Atty. Nonnatus Rojas, Atty. Baligod, and the journalists who wrote against the Napoles capers were said to be collateral targets.

Prior to becoming a lawyer and as newsman for at least 15 years at the Philippine Journalists, Inc. where he had been handling People's Tonight as a news editor before he left, Berteni "Toto" Cataluña Causing had received death threats and survived unscathed from all of them.
This will be a redo for Causing.
