-LAWYERS of Iglesia ni Cristo asked CA not to admit the testimony Menorca II as evidence.
– strike Mr. Menorca’s direct testimony for not complying with court rules.
-Menorca lawyer G. Ahmed G. Paglinawan said objections should made after a witness’ cross-examination, not before.
-Paglinawan told the court INC move was an attempt to censor the minister’s statements
-Prodigalidad denied this
-Menorca “ramble on” in his 52-page judicial affidavit, instead of being asked questions answerable with specific replies.
-Only one question was asked — ‘What happened next? “It doesn’t seem like a judicial affidavit. [It was] more like a scripted melodramatic soap opera”
– Affidavit was full of speculation and conclusions that should be stricken out — a total of 117 objections to be manifested all in all.
-INC camp maintained they would not cross-examine Mr. Menorca without the court ruling on their 117 objections.
-“The moment we cross-examine on an inadmissible evidence, all these [objections] would be deemed waived.”
-The hearing will resume on Jan. 20
