DOJ fairness in INC case seen

Edu Punay (The Philippine Star) - November 15, 2015 - 9:00am

MANILA, Philippines – The Department of Justice (DOJ) is expected to resolve with fairness the criminal charges filed against leaders of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) by expelled minister Isaias Samson Jr., a lawyer said yesterday.

Lorna Kapunan expressed the belief that Justice Secretary Alfredo Benjamin Caguioa would resolve the charges based on the merits of the case.

“The complaint against the INC has attracted attention, and I’m sure whatever decision the DOJ arrives at will elicit reactions either way,” Kapunan said.

“It’s important that the issues raised in the complaint are carefully threshed out,” she added.

Kapunan said Caguioa is expected to rule on the case in accordance with the law.

She added that Caguioa does not have a political agenda.

“He has no reason to curry favor with any of the parties involved, and probably does not care if he is criticized or praised after the DOJ rules,” Kapunan said.

Samson has accused INC officials of harassing and detaining him and his family for exposing alleged corruption in the church.
