Boying Remulla as the new DOJ chief left Agot Isidro, personalities, question: ‘Where’s the justice?’

“Really? That’s da best of da best Marcos Jr can come up with?”

Celebrities, personalities, and netizens question the selection of presumptive president Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr to have Cavite 7th District Rep. Jesus Crispin “Boying” Remulla sit as the next Department of Justice (DOJ) chief last Monday, May 23.

Remulla accepted the offer to head the DOJ, which he confirmed via virtual interview.

“I’ve accepted it. It’s an honor… It’s a very rare opportunity given to lawyers like us,” he said.

Actress Agod Isidro tweeted, “Saan ang hustisya dyan?”

The congressman was among the ABS-CBN franchise killers. He believed that the Network did not deserve a franchise license.

“Privilege kasi ang franchise. Once you abuse the privilege, you lose that right. Bakit pagkakatiwalaan pa na ibabalik sa iyo kung marami namang magagaling na pwedeng bigyan ng prangkisa na tutupad sa usapan saka patakaran ng gobyerno?

“Bakit ibibigay sa isang nag viviolate at nambubully pa? Mabuti na lang wala sila,”he said in a previous SMNI virtual interview.

Remulla also claimed that ABS-CBN had major violations, which were later on proven to be false.

Not only that, he accused volunteers of the outgoing Vice President Leni Robredo as “paid volunteers” and “leftist” without any proper basis during the election campaign period.

“Ang dami nilang mga estudyante, ‘yung mga aktibista, galing sa kaliwa, oo. Mga trained ng NDF, o kaya training nila. May dalang mga bandera pero pink,” he stated on March 4.

Netizens and personalities were aghast to have a red-tagger like Remulla head the government’s justice department.

Remulla, as the DOJ chief, will also lead the Anti-Terrorism Council while being a rampant red-tagger himself. Philip Jamilla tweeted that “dark times” will come ahead.

Jonathan de Santos of the National Union of Journalists in the Philippines (NUJP) explained that Remulla, being a red-tagger, will have the power to investigate “politically-motivated killings, including of activists and dissenters.”

Journalist Barnaby Lo also could not believe that the next government could appoint Remulla.

Award-winning journalist Raissa Robles ridiculed Marcos Jr for having Remulla sit as the Justice Chief.

“Really? That’s da best of da best Marcos Jr can come up with?”

Kristoffer Pasion even said that the Cavite congressman would be an “Injustice Secretary.”

Remulla was re-elected as the 7th District of Cavite representative in the recently-concluded 2022 elections unopposed.

He would have to give up his seat as Cavite’s 7th district representative before becoming the DOJ Secretary.
