SPOTTED: Rudy Fariñas at Ateneo-UST basketball game
MANILA, Philippines - It seems Ateneo UAAP games are great therapy for #CoronaTrial alums.
After spotting dismissed Chief Justice Renato Corona cheering on his alma mater at last weekend’s game vs Adamson, Rappler saw deputy lead prosecutor Rodolfo "Rudy" Fariñas in the stands at Thursday's game vs UST.
Fariñas, who played basketball in college, was with son JR (Rodolfo Jr) near the dugout after the game. He told Rappler he was cheering for Ateneo while his son, the incumbent Sangguniang Kabataan president of Ilocos Norte and a freshman at UST, was of course cheering for his university. "He won this time!" the congressman said in a text message to Rappler.
Fariñas became a hit during the Corona trial for his "Palusot" closing speech.
Fariñas obtained both his Bachelor of Arts (1971) and Bachelor of Laws (1978) degree from the Ateneo.
