Lawyer shares legal opinion on Dilawan socmed mantra – BBM did not pay fine to the court

The Dilawans have been crying to the high heavens that BBM should be disqualified by COMELEC to run for President because he did not pay fine to the court.

However, as far as Atty. Darwin is concerned, this matter is what he called RES JUDICATA. So I looked up Google and this is what it means – a matter that has been adjudicated by a competent court and may not be pursued further by the same parties.

Here’s how netizens react to Atty. Drawin’s legal opinion.

Exactly!!!palusot nlng ang grupo ng mga leftist na Dilawan baka sakali Kasi mukhang DQ nalang ang huling alas ng pag asa ng nnay ng kkamfink!

Na hatulan na at pinarusahan na siya ng multa.Dih na pwede parusahan ulet ng kulong,maging double jeopardy, bale touch-move na.Ok na rin yung mga petitions na isinampa nila kay BBM , at least dahil dyan nalinis at na klaro na ang pangalan ni BBM.

Sa BIR may kulang, BIR naniningil, natural sa BIR magbayad susme nman sila. Ang kelangan lang nun ,magsubmit ng kopya ng Resibo sa RTC, pero siguro inassume na ng kampo ni BBM na no need na sa RTC since nasa CA na nga yung case haist kaloka simpleng bagay pinalalaki ng mga buset mema lang. Ang importante nabayaran na. ano pa hinahabol ng mga buset na yan.

propaganda na lang talaga. iniisip nila yun tao ndi na boboto kay BBM kasi bka madisqualify din sa huli. pero votes wont go to Leni. either isko or läcson yan .

They are just trying to see kung ma shake off ang voter support, at lumipat sa ibang candidates. Kung solid yan they cant cheat a landslide, they cant risk rin with a PPrally na against them. The best deterrent is to stay vigilant bec given na that the numbers dont lie on BBM supporters.

You may now read Atty. Darwin’s full FB post.

I’m wrapping my head around the argument that BBM did not pay the fine to the court. For me, that ship has sailed. I doubt the BIR would file a separate action to collect it since it has been paid. So which party has a legal standing to file a Writ of Execution? Wala. So basically RES JUDICATA na iyan. As it is, even the RTC where BBM was sued itself cannot go after him anymore for enforcement of any deficiencies.

Reaction?
