Heads or Tails: Former Secretary Arthur Cua Yap

My blog partner suggested we post this now.

Unlike the other side of the coin, I have more than just a fleeting meeting with Secretary Yap. Used to work for the guy here. So here’s what I have to say…

To end, I like to quote Section 21, Rule 130 of the Rules on Evidence:

Sec. 21. Privileged communication. The following persons cannot testify as to matters learned in confidence in the following cases:

(a) The husband or the wife during the marriage or afterwards, cannot be examined without the consent of the other as to any communication received in confidence by one from the other during the marriage;

(b) An attorney cannot, without the consent of his client, be examined as to any communication made by the client to him, or his advice given thereon in the course of professional employment; nor can an attorney’s secretary, stenographer, or clerk be examined, without the consent of the client and his employer, concerning any fact the knowledge of which has been acquired in such capacity;

(c) A person authorized to practice medicine, surgery or obstetrics cannot in a civil case, without the consent of the patient, be examined as to any information which he may have acquired in attending such patient in a professional capacity, which information was necessary to enable him to act in that capacity, and which would blacken the character of the patient;

(d) A minister or priest cannot, without the consent of the person making the confession, be examined as to any confession made to him in his professional character in the course of discipline enjoined by the church to which he belongs;

(e) A public officer cannot be examined during his term of office or afterwards, as to communications made to him in official confidence, when the court finds that the public interest would suffer by the disclosure.
