Lawyer Larry Gadon hit back at the Supreme Court’s (SC) preventive suspension order against him, saying it was politically motivated.

Gadon also claimed that the SC meted the suspension on him “without due process.”

“For an institution that prides itself for safeguarding due process of laws, I am confused that the Supreme Court immediately suspended me without due process and my suspension was announced in the media without furnishing me first with a copy of the complaint, if there is any,” Gadon said.

“Since this appears unprecedented in history, I cannot help but feel that I am being singled out,” he added. “Could this be politically motivated since I am running for senator?”

The SC imposed the suspension on Gadon over a viral video where he spewed profanities towards journalist Raissa Robles. The suspension is effective immediately and will continue until the Court lifts it. Ronald Espartinez
