Second, I was named by CIDG Laraga as Kerwin Espinosa’s protector on the basis of Mayor Rolando Espinosa’s judicial affidavits dated August 24, 2016 and October 3, 2016. I have here with me the affidavits and these are entitled Judicial Affidavit of a Witness. But Section 3 of the 2012 Judicial Affidavit Rule mandates, “Section 3, Contents of Judicial Affidavit. A judicial affidavit shall be prepared in the language known to the witness”—meaning, Cebuano because the late Mayor Espinosa, a resident of Albuera, Leyte, speaks Cebuano— and, if not in English or Filipino, it must be accompanied by a translation in English or Filipino. Wala pong translation ang affidavits na ito. They shall contain the following, among others, the name and address of the lawyer who conducts or supervises the examination of the witness and the place where the examination is being held. Importante po kasi, Your Honors, ang abogado—question-answer; question-answer. 12

COMMITTEE ON PUBLIC ORDER AND DANGEROUS DRUGS JOINT WITH THE COMMITTEE ON JUSTICE AND HUMAN RIGHTS BRHGonzales II-1 November 23, 2016 9:10 a.m. 5 Article III, Section 12, paragraph 1 of the Constitution mandates that the person being investigated should be assisted by a counsel of his own choice in order that that lawyer can tell the witness, “Huwag mong sagutin iyan because you are already incriminating yourself. Huwag mong sagutin iyan because magkakakaso ka either ng perjury or false testimony.” Also, Your Honors, important is that the judicial affidavit should show the circumstances under which the witness acquired the facts which he testifies upon. Importante po kasi iyon; otherwise, hearsay lahat iyan. And please take note, Your Honors, that the Judicial Affidavit Rule of 2012 mandates that if the requirements in Section 3 of the Judicial Affidavit Rule of 2012 do not contain what I have told you, prepared in the language known to the witness and also assisted by a counsel, this judicial affidavit will not be admissible in court. In that regard, Your Honor, wala po akong ikakatakot insofar as concerns the affidavit of the late Mayor Espinosa. Walang gamit po ito; plain scrap of paper. Let me proceed, Your Honor, at 3:15 yesterday, philippineinquirers.net quoted Your Honor, the chairman, Panfilo M. Lacson, as saying that per draft affidavit of Kerwin Espinosa that was submitted to the Senate Committee on Public Order and Dangerous Drugs, “The signature of slain Albuera, Leyte, Mayor Rolando Espinosa 13

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
