This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
to stay in the Philippines, Gutierrez required US$20,000 as deposit, refundable after one year. Gutierrez was then with the Bureau of Immigration and Deportation. After one year, when Huyssen demanded the $20,000 from Atty. Gutierrez, the respondent failed to do so. ISSUE: Whether or not Atty. Gutierrez should be disbarred? RULING: Yes. He violated Canon 6, Rule 6.02. His defense was not able to address the issue to prove his innocence, but it even weakened his stand for he implicitly admitted that he really required and received $20,000. Why was he too willing to give out P800,000 out of his own personal money if there really is a legal requirement of $20,000 which could have been possibly refunded from the BID?
