  1. Jun 01 17 – The Public Attorney’s Office is making their presence felt by the public in sensational cases but many ordinary cases are not well attended because those will not get them in the lime light. The COA must audit not the financial affair but the performance of PAO. The head of PAO, Atty. Persida Acosta was known to be a simple religious lady dedicated to serving the interest of the less fortunate but now her ambition for a higher position is now made known with political patronage. She was appointed as head of PAO by President Noynoy Aquino. She is now bashing VP Leni Robredo and Senator Leila de Lima while boosting President Duterte. She must perform her duty as public attorney without clinging to political power she as that will be tantamount to influencing their poor clients to join the Duterte bandwagon.
