Due Execution

Something Satur Ocampo is reported to have said caught my eye.

After the hearing which ended at 2:45 p.m., Ocampo explained the discrepancy in the dates.

Ocampo said October 11 was used as the date of execution because it was the date of filing.

“It’s not a clerical error, it was in fact intentional. We dated it October 11 kasi iyon ang day ng [that is the day of the] filing pero nung panahon na ipanumpa nila sa abugado nandun na ang document [but at that time that they swore before the lawyer, the document had been drafted], so hindi na question kung magko-conflict ang [there is longer no question of conflicting] dates,” he said.

In the grand scheme of things, I suppose the date of the notary prolly doesn’t amount to much. But when a document is notarized, doesn’t the person seeking notarization swear to or affirm the truth of the information contained in the document, under penalty of perjury? So, if you knew that the date was wrong, doesn’t that amount to perjury?

Why would Satur Ocampo say such a thing?

    Maceda sez Erap consulted Narvasa and others, and they told him that the 1987 Consti prohibits only the INCUMBENT prez from re-election. Former prezzies, by their definition, face no such prohibition. But in the same breath, Maceda also sez that they know an Erap candidacy will be the subject of a disqual case – but […]
  • Escalation 30 December 2008
    I still think the Pangandaman’s shouldn’t have retaliated even if dela Paz threw the first punch. But is anyone really surprised at the escalation in the story-telling on both sides? BTW, I think we can dispense with the age angle nao.
  • Etiquette 29 December 2008
    Unless you’re spoiling for a fight, assume that the writer has some basis for what she writes. Don’t make like a lawyer and ask retarded questions in an attempt to lay the foundation for whatever point you’re trying to make.
