Justice Secretary Agra cheated in law school – professor

Posted by akosistella on May 4, 2010


Who is lying and who is telling the truth?

The former professor of acting Justice Secretary Alberto C. Agra has finally spoken to refute his student’s claim that he was exonerated of cheating in a law subject exam, which he took 22 years ago at the Ateneo de Manila University Law School.

Atty. Avelino Sebastian Jr. said that if Agra was indeed exonerated by the school’s investigating committee that inquired into the reported cheating, how then could the acting justice secretary explain why was Agra the only one who flunked the Wills and Succession subject in 1988, out of seven students who reportedly cheated?

Last week, in his reply to the queries of the Philippine Center Investigative Journalism (PCIJ) about his alleged cheating, Agra had admitted that he flunked the subject taught by Sebastian, thus barring him from graduating on time.

FVR says ‘no’ to new Edsa Revolt

MANILA, Philippines – Former President Fidel V. Ramos does not support Liberal Party standard-bearer Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino’s call for another “People Power” if he loses the presidential elections.

The former president, who said he could not speak for the Church but only for retired military officers like himself, urged Aquino on Monday to consider using legal means first before launching another military-backed civilian similar to the one undertaken in February 1986.

“It’s not a good thing to hear, especially coming from someone like him,” Ramos said, referring to Aquino’s threat. “The chief of the local clergy has also spoken against it, too.”

CBCP summons Bangit

MANILA, Philippines – Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) chief of staff Gen. Delfin Bangit has been summoned by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), amid persistent reports of a military takeover in case of chaos brought by massive failure of elections.

Bangit will appear before the CBCP permanent council in its regular meeting on Tuesday. Church sources said the agenda is the forthcoming May 10 elections and the peace and order situation.

This will be the second time that Bangit will meet with the princes of the Church in light of fears that the military will take advantage of the pandemonium that could result from failed elections.
