Parang Duterte! Edgar Labella recalls younger days as prosecutor
It was an instant nostalgia trip.
After decades, Vice Mayor Edgardo Labella found himself in the company of Justice Manuel R. Pamaran, who was once then Presiding Justice of the Sandiganbayan.
The politiko instantly had war flashbacks upon seeing whom he knew as the “Hanging Justice,” given the many convictions which Pamaran granted back in the day.
Labella also recalled how the now-frail legal luminary would once scold either him and his fellow prosecutors or the defense camp for some sloppy work.
Fast-forward to now, Labella is the politiko while Pamaran is President of the Veterans Federation of the Philippines.
How time flies!
