Baka Magkalimutan! Law dean reminds Sen. Pimentel of quarantine violation amid cyberlibel threat




Not so fast Koko!
Despite having said that he will file charges against those who have besmirched his name, a Law Dean has reminded senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel” that he has violated quarantine protocols.

“Threats of filing cases will not change the fact that you violated the law and endangered the lives of Filipinos that you swore to protect,” read Atty. Quicho’s latest Facebook post.

“Shame on you” added Quicho, who was also the former spokesman of former Vice President Jejomar Binay and late Supreme Court  Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio.
Atty. Quicho filed last month a criminal complaint against Pimentel before the Department of Justice (DOJ) for the alleged breach of quarantine protocols for having visited the Makati Medical Center (MMC) last March 24.
In the complaint,Senator Pimentel is accused of having violated Republic Act 11332 (the Mandatory Reporting of Notifiable Diseases and Health Events of Public Health Concern Act) and its implementing rules and other Department of Health (DOH) regulations.

Last month the Department of Justice issued a sub poena as against senator Koko Pimentel for his alleged breach of quarantine protocols in visiting the Makati Medical Center (MMC) last March 24.
“(M)y lawyers will do what is necessary” – was the answer of the senator when she was asked to comment regarding the DOJ’s move in issuing the subpoena for himto appear in the preliminary investigation of the case which was tentatively scheduled on May 20.
“Re(garding) DOJ case, my lawyers will do what is necessary. I will defer to them,” Pimentel said.
