Gov. Gwen Takes The Stand

Gov. Gwen Garcia this morning took the witness stand in the libel case she filed against broadcaster and newspaper columnist Leo Lastimosa. The photo above shows Garcia being cross-examined by Atty. Celso Espinosa, Lastimosa’s counsel. The governor, as the prosecution’s last witness, told the court that she and her family and their reputation were hurt by the column Lastimosa wrote in The Freeman newspaper entitled “Doling Kawatan.” Although she was never named in the column, all descriptions of a supposedly fictional barangay captain named “Doling” point to her.
