The fickle Harry Roque
The editorial “Moment of reckoning” (3/23/21) was dead-on in its observation about the fickleness and shamelessness of presidential spokesperson Harry Roque: “What has become of the former human rights lawyer (Roque)? Completely transmogrified into the barker now hard at work defending the first Philippine president to face a potential grave case in the ICC (International Criminal Court).”
The former University of the Philippines College of Law professor is living proof of the extreme extent to which a lawyer would go if the price was right: Do or say anything to please a client. The perks and privileges of being a fixture in Malacañang are for him too irresistible to pass up? We wonder how this spineless, unscrupulous shyster can ever come back to UP to teach law again.
