Philippine Laws -Simplified | Free Legal Advice
Welcome! I'm Giancarlo Enrico S. Pozon, a Wushu instructor, investor and Law Student... That's right, Law Student. I created this blog to make Philippine Law easy to understand for the average person. It's all about free legal advice. There are many law blogs. But the problem is that many of them are written for lawyers and law students. They use words that can't be understood by ordinary people. Many lawyers, judges and law students consider themselves as superior to most human beings because of their knowledge of the law. It bothers me since the law is supposed to serve society. Since the law is meant to serve society as a whole, it is important that is must be understood by everybody. This does not mean that we should all become lawyers. It means that although law is a highly specialized profession, the first duty of everybody in this profession is to make the law understandable to all; that's why all these articles are free legal advice. Like I said, this blog is about law -but it's for the ordinary people, not the lawyers. It's for the ordinary folk so they will know what is good and bad for them, and that making them aware of the law will help us all improve society as a whole. This is free legal advice for everybody!

Now that you know about the offenses of public officers under RA 3019, here are the provisions of the same law that target other offenders. The penalties that cover these offenses are the same as those of public officers.
Persons with family ties or close personal relations with any public official are prohibited from taking advantage of such ties or relationships by directly or indirectly asking for or receiving any gift or material/pecuniary advantage
