RTC JUDGE INHIBITS FROM SEN. DE LIMA DRUG CASES



Muntinlupa Regional Trial Court (MRTC) branch 204 Judge Juanita Guerrero, who was assigned to handle the drug charges against Senator Leila de Lima inhibited from the case.

Guerrero said this decision was made in order not to cast doubt on her integrity and impartiality.

With this move, the Jan. 24 arraignment of De Lima, her former driver-bodyguard Ronnie Dayan and former Bureau of Corrections officer-in-charge Rafael Ragos is cancelled.
