‘A man shall not bear the sins of his son’: NTF-Elcac backs Remulla amid son’s arrest

Inquirer Breaking News - Sat, 10/15/2022 - 01:55
MANILA, Philippines --- The National Taskforce to End Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-Elcac) stands behind Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin "Boying" Remulla following the arrest of his son over alleged involvement in the importation of P1.3 million worth of kush or high-grade marijuana. The NTF-Elcac legal cooperation cluster said the sin of Remulla's son should not be pinned on the DOJ chief. "Nothing is more established in law and equity that a man shall not bear the sins of his son. To pin and smear Sec. Remulla for the actions of his son is to make him liable for the sins of his son -- an anathema to Biblical and legal principles. "The unrighteousness of his son is his son's al...

Inquirer Breaking News - Sat, 10/15/2022 - 00:05
BFF Buboy (Cesar Montano) is family to me, so his happiness is mine as well. I am overjoyed that all is well in BFF's world now. Since we've been best friends for over a decade (and counting), I am privy to his colorful love life.

I remember BFF singing his blues away at his former resto Bellissimo during our "Thursday Club" bonding sessions. Buboy's "healing anthem" back then was James Taylor's "Shower the People."
