Arnold Clavio couldn’t hide his disappointment after the son of Justice Secretary Boying Remulla, Juanito Jose Remulla III walks free from charges filed against him.
It can be remembered that Jose Remulla was caught by the members of PDEA after accepting a parcel with illegal contraband inside.
However, Las Piñas Regional Trial Court Branch 197 didn’t find any evidence that the son of the powerful public official was aware that a parcel is going to be delivered to him.
In his social media post, Clavio shared a photo of his angry avatar to express his feelings about the news.
He even claimed that the info by PDEA about Remulla came from the United States.
“Ikaw ang umorder. Ikaw ang tumanggap. Ikaw ang nag-uwi sa bahay. Verdict : “ABSUWELTO” dahil sa kakulangan ng ebidensiya. Huwaw!!!” Clavio said.
Some friends of Clavio also shared their opinion on the news.
“Kawawang mga ordinariong Pilipino,” netizen @chotty53 said.
“Eh apelyido pa lang, absuwelto na e,” netizen @joelzobel commented.
Meanwhile, Sec. Remulla admitted that he was happy by the decision of the court and hoping for his son to have a redemption.
“Siyempre you are relieved and happy. He had the right to be presumed innocent in the first place. I am just glad justice is served,” Remulla said.
He also believed that PDEA made a mistake during the operation against his son.
Days after Jose Remulla got caught, Wilkins Villanueva who was the head of PDEA during that time has been replaced.
It’s not known if the replacement of Villanueva was related to the operation they did against the son of the justice secretary.
