Lawyer reminds Mocha Uson: "Practice of law only for those morally fit"

In a Facebook post, Atty. Mar Francis Veloso Rebato, Attorney III at the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), reminded Mocha Uson that the practice of law is not a business and not a right. He said, "The Supreme Court of the Philippines ruled in a plethora of disbarment cases that the practice of law is not a natural or constitutional right but a privilege. It is a profession and not a business. It is primarily for public service. It is bestowed by the State only to persons who are morally fit. It is a greatest gift from the Filipino people. Just a warning to a prominent blogger who wants to become a lawyer. #LegalEthics"
