The Supreme Court has finally disbarred Presidential Adviser for Poverty Alleviation Larry Gadon after several months of being suspended.
In a statement released by SC, Gadon has been removed from being a lawyer after he made several negative comments against journalist Raissa Robles whom he compared to a ‘dog’.
“The Court pointed out that Gadon, unfortunately, failed to realize that lawyers are expected to avoid scandalous behavior, whether in their public of private life,” the Supreme Court stated.
The decision only came after President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. appointed Gadon to his current position, that was also received opposition from several groups.
They mentioned the other acts made by Gadon that resulted in his suspension for several months, including the six administrative cases filed against him before the Office of the Bar Confidant and 4 before the Commission on Bar Discipline of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines.
Supreme Court also cited the accusations made by Gadon against Senior Associate Justice Marfic Leonen and Associate Justice Alfredo Benjamin Caguiao.
As of writing, Gadon, who’s considered one of the most controversial lawyers in the country, has yet to give any statement on the decision by the Supreme Court.
