Larry Gadon Shares Reaction After Being Disbarred by the Supreme Court
The newly appointed Presidential Adviser for Poverty Alleviation Larry Gadon gives a reaction after being disbarred by the Supreme Court.
Gadon was recently unanimously disbarred by the Supreme Court following a viral video in which he is seen throwing expletives at a journalist. The video shows Gadon using “misogynistic, s3xist, abusive, and repetitive intemperate language” on journalist Raissa Robles, according to the supreme court.
The court further stated that the video was “indisputably scandalous,” and that it “discredits the legal profession.” The high court also charged Gadon with direct contempt of court for his “baseless” charges of partiality.
Gadon responded to the Supreme Court’s decision by writing on Facebook that he will file a motion for reconsideration, citing the judgement as “too harsh for the alleged cause.” Gadon also stated that his disbarment will not affect his new employment under the Marcos administration.
Gadon stated that he had already withdrawn from his profession due to his political participation since 2015. The anti-poverty czar also stated that if this is what it takes to be a public servant, he is willing to pay the price for the people of the Philippines.
President Bongbong Marcos nominated him as Presidential Adviser on Poverty Alleviation on Monday, June 26, 2023. The Presidential Communications Office (PCO) announced Gadon’s appointment on Monday, June 26.
