“Debates? Filipinos love to argue. Your neighborhood toughie can debate,” Cañete remarked towards the other side who claimed to be one of the country’s top debaters.
Falcis earned the top prize at the Asian Debate Competition in 2013 when he was still studying at the University of the Philippines.
Cañete futher said in his Facebook post, “But I pity your client whose case got junked because you don't know when to shut your mouth.”
In Cañete's separate post, he said that the best trial lawyers were questioners, readers, writers and not debaters. "They did not rely on tricks of language but on depth of knowledge on the issues they were litigating," he added.
Pro and anti-Duterte have been exchanging tirades against each other lately often resulting to hitting personal attacks on careers and other private maters.
