Ateneo Law Professor Alberto Agra claimed the disqualification filed against former Senator Bongbong Marcos is dismissible.

The abogado explained that the punishment that came with the conviction mattered.

Agra said he was convicted and tasked to pay a fine instead of imprisonment. If the moral turpitude is going to be one of the bases for the disqualification, Marcos’ sentence would not count.

The former DOJ Secretary stated the said decision is already final. He emphasized as well that moral turpitude will also not apply as there is no fraud involved in tax discrepancies or evasion.

So ano ba talaga: lusot or ligwak?
