MANILA — All eyes are focused now on Las Piñas Regional Trial Court Branch 197 Acting Presiding Judge Ricardo Moldez II after the drug case of Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin “Boying” Remulla’s son Juanito Jose Diaz Remulla III landed on his sala.

Despite calls for his resignation or leave of absence, the justice secretary has maintained that he will not quit his appointive post and he will not also interfere nor influence the case involving his son.

“I haven’t talked to him actually, since the beginning. I’ve stayed away from the case. I have not talked to anybody. I have not asked anybody any favor,” the justice secretary said, referring to his son’s case.

He also refused to comment on whether he will visit Remulla III.

To recall, the younger Remulla was arrested on Oct. 11, 2022, in Las Piñas City for alleged possession of around P1.3 million worth of suspected high-grade marijuana or “kush”.

He has been charged with violating Section 11 of Republic Act 9165, also known as the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. (ai/mtvn)
