President Duterte has personally congratulated three members of the Presidential Security Group who passed the latest Philippine bar examinations.
Duterte invited the trio to a photo opportunity at Malago Clubhouse, Malacañang Park last April 21, PSG spokesperson Maj. Zeerah Blanche Lucrecia said on Monday.
She identified the new lawyers as Capt. Joan Napay who is assigned at the PSG Station Hospital, Lt. April Bayabao from the Office of the Assistant Chief of Staff for Logistics, and PSSgt. Byron Angelo Bacud from the Presidential Police Security Force Unit.
“The President shared to them his personal experiences as a lawyer and as a prosecutor when he was still in practice,” Lucrecia said, quoting Napay.
“The President advised the trio to read more books on trial techniques, and practice their new profession whether in the AFP or in private,” she added.
A total of 8,241 out of 11, 402 law graduates who took the Bar last Feb. 4 and 6 passed the tests, the Supreme Court said.
