Diocese fights back,
readies legal action
More churches to display Team Patay tarp

The Commission on Elections order for Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra to take down the “Team Patay/Team Buhay” tarpaulin in front of the San Sebastian Cathedral in Bacolod City is unconstitutional and a direct threat to the prelate who has not violated any law, his legal panel said yesterday.

“We will take all the necessary legal action to defend the bishop and the Diocese of Bacolod,” lawyer Ralph Sarmiento, who is also the dean of the University of St. La Salle College of Law in Bacolod, said.

They will take legal action today against those responsible for making the direct threat on the bishop for an alleged crime he did not commit, but are withholding details on their move, said Sarmiento at a press conference at the Bishop’s House, along with lawyers Mitchelle Abella and Raymundo Pandan Jr., who compose the bishop’s legal panel.moremoremore
