Inquirer.net reports that Elena Bautista-Horn, spokesperson of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, drew flak for some of her statements in her Wednesday (November 17) dzMM radio interview.

 

According to the report, Horn was frustrated over Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Leila de Lima's move to stop the Arroyos from leaving the country. Thus, she questioned the kind of law education received by De Lima and the Bureau of Immigration (BI) lawyer who had barred Arroyo at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport on Tuesday (November 15). As it turns out, both De Lima and the BI lawyer are graduates of the San Beda College of Law.

 

"I just thought that maybe a different Constitution is taught in San Beda because they have a different interpretation of the law. We can see that the executive branch really wants to defy the judiciary and this is saddening because [De Lima] is a lawyer. I am surprised and I really wish that the San Beda College of Law will talk about this because the immigration lawyer who stopped us came from San Beda," Horn said.

 

According to Inquirer.net, Horn’s Facebook fan page got peeved comments. Horn clarified on Thursday (November 18) that she was "only referring to De Lima and the immigration lawyer-not the whole college."
