Atty. Lorna Kapunan Withdraw as Napoles Lawyer due to Death Threats

“They thought I can convince the client to speak out the truth. The others were afraid of what she might be able to expose. So if they can’t threaten the client, they threaten the lawyer,” Kapunan said in her interview in “Tapatan Ni Tunying” airing this Thursday (Nov 21).

Aside from alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Napoles’ case, Kapunan also handled several controversial cases including those that involved celebrities like Rhian Ramos, James Yap and Hayden Kho.

Tunying also goes face-to-face with another prominent criminal lawyer, Atty. Ferdinand Topacio. Despite his long list of clients that includes showbiz personalities, politicians, and public interest groups, Topacio reveals that his ultimate dream is to become President Noynoy Aquino’s legal counsel.

“At the end of President Aquino’s term, he’ll be facing lots of legal woes. If he’ll trust me, I will certainly defend him though I am one of his critics,” Topacio said.

Topacio also recounts the Dacer-Corbito double murder case which he considers as the most dangerous case he handled in his entire career.

“I received flowers for burial in the house twice. That was the only time I hired bodyguards since my mother had been worrying and crying because of those threats,” said Topacio, who used to be the legal counsel of Col. Cezar Mancao II, the principal witness  against Sen. Panfilo Lacson in the said case.

Aside from their dangerous lives as criminal lawyers, Kapunan and Topacio also talk about their fulfilling personal lives as parents.

Meanwhile, “Tapatan Ni Tunying” director Jet Leyco recently bagged the Best Picture award from the recently held Cinema One Originals Digital Film Festival for his film “Bukas Na Lang Sapagka’t Gabi Na.”

Arnold Clavio Criticized After Napoles Lawyer Alfredo Villamor Interview (Video)

GMA-7 broadcast journalist Arnold Clavio drew flak from netizens after a phone patch interview with Atty. Alfredo Villamor, Janet Lim-Napoles' lawyer for the latter's serious illegal detention case.

Arnold Clavio Criticized after Napoles lawyer Interview

According to netizens, Arnold Clavio threw unprofessional side comments while interviewing Janet Napoles' lawyer on Unang Balita Tuesday morning. In the video making rounds in social media, Clavio was quoted to have told Atty. Villamor "rude" statements such as "Pansira ka ng araw eh," and "Tatawa-tawa ka pa." 

Apparently, Arnold Clavio got irked after the said lawyer started to beat around the bush when asked by the broadcaster. However, some netizens opined that Clavio's behavior was a sign of being unprofessional, rude and arrogant—cutting the interview while the other person was still talking and even telling the lawyer that he's just a waste of time (in a sense).

"Sana pala hindi namin kayo natawagan, salamat ho, wala ho akong nakuha sa inyo [na relevant information]. Salamat po attorney," Clavio remarked before cutting the interview on air.
