Sa kanyang Facebook post, sinabi ni Rofel Bayaga Kiamco, 41, na ang pagkamatay ng kanyang ama ang naging dahilan upang tahakin niya ang pagiging abogado.

Kalakip ng kanyang post ang larawan ng kanyang ama at ang resulta ng bar exam.

“I will share a photograph of a man who is the cause why I pursued law studies and aim for lawyering. He is Ruben Laping Kiamco Sr. (a.k.a. Boyax); I consider him a legend. A man whose heart is like a Lion who knows nothing about a retreat,” sabi ni Rofel.

Kwento niya, taong 2012 ay napaaway sa halos sampung kalalakihan ang kanyang ama at nakasuhan ng “attempted murd3r and frustrated murd3r”.

Namatay ang ama ni Rofel taong 2013 habang naka-pending pa ang kaso.

“His death caused me sorrow and grief, which struck me because he died without a lawyer in the family to defend him in court – except a lawyer from PAO.”

Kaya naman ipinangako ni Rofel sa kanyang ama na magtatapos siya bilang abogado upang protektahan at ipagtanggol ang kanilang pamilya sa mga abusado.

However, sometime in 2012, he was engaged in a fight (he was alone against ten men, more or less) and was maliciously charged with attempted murd3r and frustrated murd3r in RTC Br. 25 and MCTC Catmon. He died subsequently in 2013 while his cases were pending.

His death caused me sorrow and grief, which struck me because he died without a lawyer in the family to defend him in court – except a lawyer from PAO. That malicious imputation by the police squeezed my heart, and on his grave, I made a vow to him to pursue Law studies so that I may defend our family and the abus*d from the abus*rs.

To my beloved late father, Boyax, here is now my promise – a Lawyer – who will defend our family and do justice and fairness to everyone.”
