Gonzalez Scolds Neri, Calls Civil Society "Evil"

Justice Secretary Raul Gonzalez is unhappy about how CHED Chairman Romulo Neri answered allegations that he had called the President "evil," saying it is more harmful than helpful.

"That's a question answerable by a yes or no. To respond like that is to open a jagged door of many interpretations," Gonzalez said.

Gonzalez said the President is not affected by it adding it was her idea to have Neri walk beside her in yesterday's unity walk at the Palace.

But if Neri indeed said that, Gonzalez said Neri has no business staying at the Palace.

The justice secretary also took potshots at civil society groups who have been pushing for the President's resignation.

"The evil,uh,civil society ..." Gonzalez said while answering a question but quicky said it was a slip of the tongue.

He said cabinet secretaries are solidly behind the President as symbolically shown in the unity walk in Malacanang grounds.

In an apparent dig at former secretaries who resigned before and are now collectively known as "Hyatt 10", Gonzalez, they would not have any of those theatrics.

"We had a cabinet meeting two nights ago and we didn't have to sing. We didn't have flowers," Gonzalez said.
