I’ve already posted an article re: Karen Davila’s tweet questioning the SC decision upholding conviction of Carlos Celdran for violating Art.133 in the Revised Penal Code.
The ABS-CBN broadcaster was literally schooled by twitterverse but we don’t know if Karen who has celebrity syndrome would welcome such from non-lawyers.
So let’s hope this Facebook post from lawyer Trixie Cruz-Angeles would reach at Karen Davila’s feed.
Moving forward, Angeles’s explanation was clear and concise in such a way that even a 5th grader can understand it.
Angeles said Davila tweet on Celdran and Duterte was like comparing apple to santol.
Read the full post below.
Ms. Karen Davila compares apples with santol.
Carlos Celdran performed acts that the court deems offensive to the feelings off the faithful, IN A PLACE DEVOTED TO RELIGIOUS WORSHIP.
The president wasn’t in church when he mouthed off.
Mahalaga ang pagkakaibang ito. Pinasok ni Carlos ang simbahan para tawaging Damaso ang mga pari. Ayon sa Simbahang Catolica, may padasal nung nangyari ang insidente.
Parang pumasok sya sa bahay ng iba para mang insulto.
Hindi ibig sabihin nito na pumapanig ako sa simbahan. Pero hindi tama yung pag compare ni Ms. Davila.
Covered pa ng freedom of speech ang pangulo. Yung kay Carlos, krimen na, ayon sa hukuman.
By the way, ang initial conviction ni Carlos was January 2013. Na uphold ito ng Court of Appeals nung January 2017. Two days ago natanggap ni Carlos ang affirmation ng SC.
Ibig sabihin nito, walang kinalaman si Duterte dito.
Art.133. Offending the religious feelings. — The penalty of arresto mayor in its maximum period to prision correccional in its minimum period shall be imposed upon anyone who, in a place devoted to religious worship or during the celebration of any religious ceremony shall perform acts notoriously offensive to the feelings of the faithful. (Revised Penal Code)
