Lagman said Roque’s claim that Duterte did not have to prove his accusation “desecrates the cardinal rule that ‘he who alleges must prove his allegation’ and the legal dictum that ‘he who asserts, not he who denies, must prove’.”
“A wild and gratuitous accusation is a virtual hallucination and an errant and feeble excuse is simply folly, which are both aberrations in law,” Lagman asserted.
