May I appeal to your newspapers to correct the public misinformation about my pending administrative cases.

I as a respondent Judge won miraculously 30 charges out of 36 charges in record-breaking 9 administrative cases including the violation of Article 231 of the Revised Penal Code with 6 years imprisonment filed by 4 judges and 70 court employees.

I lost 6 charges because my answers with legal bases were unintentionally omitted from the Decision due to numerous charges that I appealed on December 27, 2016 after I received the Decision on December 24, 2016.

From December 28, 2016 until now, I was subjected to massive smear campaigns by paid national print media and social media that happened also in 2014.

These administrative cases are still pending for resolution by the Supreme Court so the paid newspapers breached the sub judice rule.

It's not true that I was accused with sexual harassment, the news reports about it are false.

I complained to God about the smear campaigns because I am not a politician, I am only a powerless lowly-ranked trial court Judge.

My clean conscience in all the fabricated administrative cases shielded me from the smear campaigns.

I am not affected at all about the paid public defamation against me.

The unauthorized publication of my pretty old picture at Philippine Star may cost P100, 000, more than a month's salary of a trial court judge.

If libel against me circulated money that helped journalism industry and Philippine economy, I do not object to it at all because everybody is entitled to his or her own opinion in the marketplace of ideas. "Today's news is tomorrow's chip paper."

Thank you.
