How can I stop PAO from giving free service to a rich swindler?

Dear Atty:

Is there a way to request PAO to cease from giving free legal service to my respondent?

I don't know what criteria they used but my respondent is a rich swindler who has multiple BP 22 cases and estafa cases in different courts. If you search the internet, she has CASES (take note: plural) in Marikina alone, maybe more in RTCs that don't publish cases (like the QC-RTC where I filed my case.)

It's just so unfair that a low-salaried complainant like me is spending quite a sum for my private lawyer but that moneyed swindler gets it for free.

yes, you can question the representation being made by PAO. Their mandate is to represent indigent litigants. File a complaint in their office.

Thank you Atty. If I file the complaint to PAO, how will that affect the case? If they withdraw their free counsel for the accused, will it not delay the trial? The accused knows all the delaying tactics. Kaya hindi kami makapag-proceed noon, she refuses to get her own counsel. That's why my lawyer, said sige na nga, para lang umusad ang kaso, wag na natin pigilan ang PAO to give her a lawyer. Tama po ba ang counsel ko to say this? Thank you for your opinion.

yes, i believe the counsel was right. if he hadn't said so, the judge would have ordered it eventually.

Bakit hindi mo subukan itanong kay P-NOY sa website niya? Sinubukan kong magtanong duon, at may kasagutan siya. Hindi ba parang "silent" graft and corruption ang matinding ayaw ni P-Noy? Mahirap kasi lumaban sa tulad nating walang ibubugang "yaman", hindi ba?
