Atty. Howard Calleja, Ateneo Law School professor
In an exclusive interview with the ... [cached]
In an exclusive interview with the Daily Tribune, Ateneo law professor and lawyer Howard Calleja admitted to having been terrified at the President's bodyguards whom he claimed tried to arrest him and his driver Sunday night at the Korea Garden and Restaurant along Jupiter Street in Makati City because the PSG claimed he went close to the façade of the restaurant where they intend to have a family dinner. Calleja told this reporter that he was with his eight-month pregnant spouse, Marla and four-year old son to meet his parents and relatives when the establishment's parking attendant prevented them from getting close to main entrance of the restaurant where two cars were parked at both ends of the parking strip. Claiming to have asked why their car wouldn't be allowed to get close to the restaurant's façade where the main entrance is located, the parking attendant refused to say, compelling him to again plead that they be allowed to get close at least near the main entrance even as explained calmly on the difficulty that his wife may have considering her state of pregnancy. Again, the parking attendant declined.
Upon entering the establishment, Calleja approached the table where he said his parents were already seated waiting for them. A few moments after, he got a call from the driver of his parents informing him that armed men in plainclothes prevented his car from leaving,while two of the "armed men" tried to drag his driver out of the car in an effort to arrest his driver. "I went inside the restaurant and just went on to have dinner with my father, mother and sister who were all already inside. After about five minutes I got a call from the driver of my father saying some armed men are arresting my driver outside," Calleja added He claimed to have immediately stepped out of the restaurant to check and saw two uniformed policemen and around eight armed men in plainclothes already surrounding his driver. When Calleja tried to ask what the commotion was all about, the armed men in plainclothes introduced themselves as members of the presidential security group and told him that his driver had committed traffic violations for which he should be arrested. "So I rushed outside and was surprised to see many men around my car and two uniformed PNP officers. I asked my driver what he did. He said they didn't want him to leave the parking area and asked for his license pointing now to a man in civilian, whom I later I found out to be part of PSG of the President," he said. Being a lawyer, Calleja grabbed his driver and tried to create a commotion by raising his voice in an apparent effort to draw attention in the area. He however found himself nearly arrested too. When he asked why he would be arrested, the PSG man allegedly told him he's guilty of causing "alarm and scandal." It was only after the PSG men got hold of his Integrated Bar of the Philippines ID that they got their hands off him and his driver. Stunned by the incident, Calleja said he just asked his driver to leave. As for himself, he said he went back inside the restaurant and sat with his family. Claiming to be completely stunned and terrified, saying he lost his appetite and just joined his parents, his wife and son at the table. Moments later, he said he saw President Aquino arrive and walked straight to the second floor of the restaurant where he was believed to meet somebody. It was at that point. Calleja decided they should leave, fearing the situation may get worse.

Howard Calleja of the Ateneo Law School said the past rulings of the high tribunal against NPC are proof that dam operators can be held accountable for the floods.
Atty. Howard Calleja of the Ateneo Law School
"Kapag pumasok na kasi ang kamay ng tao, at hindi na niya ito nahinto o hindi niya nakitang ito mahinto kahit na pwede sana niya itong mahinto, tatanggalin na po natin sa 'force majeure' or 'act of God' doctrine," said lawyer Howard Calleja, a professor of the law school and an expert on torts and damages.
But Calleja suggested that it may be time for local government officials and government agencies, like the National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC), to be charged as well.
"Titingnan natin ang lahat ng partisipantes dito: from the LGU, from the national which is represented by the NDCC and the dam operators because it has to a clear coordination. If the coordination is not clear, everybody in that line of coordination, I think is negligent," said Calleja.
Calleja's comments came in view of the plan of Pangasinan residents to sue NPC and the San Roque Multi-purpose Project which released raging waters to the Agno river.
Although the high tribunal's decisions may give flood victims hope that persons responsible for the flooding will pay, Calleja also warned future complainants that their quest for justice might take a long time.
He explained decisions like these take years, before being handed down.
