Filipino 'dwarf' judge loses case
A Philippines judge who said he consulted imaginary mystic dwarves has failed to convince the Supreme Court to allow him to keep his job.
Florentino Floro was appealing against a three-year inquiry which led to his removal due to incompetence and bias.

He told investigators three mystic dwarves - Armand, Luis and Angel - had helped him to carry out healing sessions during breaks in his chambers.

The court said psychic phenomena had no place in the judiciary.

The bench backed a medical finding that the judge was suffering from psychosis.

'Dwarf dalliance'

The Manila trial judge had asked the Supreme Court to dismiss the complaint and return him to the bench, after being sacked in April.

"They should not have dismissed me for what I believed," Mr Floro told reporters after filing his appeal in May.

The judge said he had made a covenant with his dwarf friends that he could write while in a trance and that he had been seen by several people in two places at the same time.

Judge Floro reportedly changed from blue court robes to black each Friday "to recharge his psychic powers".

In a letter to the court he said: "From obscurity, my name and the three mystic dwarves became immortal."

However, the Supreme Court said dalliance with dwarves would gradually erode the public's acceptance of the judiciary as the guardian of the law, if not make it an object of ridicule.

Unbelievable. I wonder if some judges in this country might be talking to Armand, Luis and Angel too.

The dwarves curses the judiciary

‘Psychotic’ judge enlists help of dwarf-friends vs SC

By Tetch Torres
INQ7.net

Posted date: November 03, 2006


BEGINNING this Sunday, three dwarves will work their powers against 14 of the 15 justices of the Supreme Court, a dismissed judge has warned as he filed his third motion for reconsideration for his reinstatement before the high tribunal.
Judge Florentino Floro Jr. of the Malabon regional trial court was separated from service after medical findings showed that he was suffering from psychosis.

The high court had said that Judge Floro lacked the judicial temperament and the fundamental requirements of competence and objectivity expected of all judges. It said that the findings of psychosis by the mental health professionals assigned to his case indicated gross deficiency in competence and independence.

In his appeal, Floro said his three dwarf-friends -- Luis, Armand, and Angel -- appeared to him last week and told him that the justices would suffer their wrath for dismissing him.

Floro said the sufferings of the Supreme Court justices would start midnight of November 5, the eve of his 53rd birthday.

Floro said he appealed to his dwarf-friends to spare one justice, which according to him had been put into a vote by the three. Floro did not name him.

"Voting en banc with full authority, Luis voted negative, Armand conditionally positive, upon full appointment of Judge Floro to a higher or equal position by virtue of the eliminated magistrate, while Angel voted neutral," Floro said.

Because the voting was a tie, Floro said Luis agreed to spare one justice if he would spread oil on any part of the justice's house before November 5.

Floro said he would follow the dwarves' advice and start praying every Friday so that the curse on the justices would work.

"I will devote my entire life, Fridays, until my last breath, towards the fulfillment, execution, and coming to pass of this curse. With absolute faith in Luis, Armand and Angel -- Angels of God, I will fulfill my destiny: spell and karma upon them, all their loved ones, up to the 4th generation," Floro said.

Judge Floro, who was appointed RTC Judge in November 1998, has admitted to having “psychic visions,” of having the ability to predict the future because of his power in “psychic phenomenon.”

He said he believed in “duwendes” [dwarves] and forged a covenant with them.

He also said that he could write while in a trance and that he had been seen by several people to have been in two places at the same time.

He also likened himself to the “angel of death” who could inflict pain on people, especially upon those he perceived to be corrupt officials of the Malabon RTC.

During court sessions, Judge Floro wore blue robes except on Fridays when he would wear a black robe and black outfit from head to foot allegedly to recharge his psychic powers. He also conducted healing sessions inside his chambers during breaks.

Judge Floro -

Welcome to the Site, and thank you for posting. You have brightened up my dull day considerably. I for one think that you are eminently qualified (probably over-qualified) to sit as a Judge in the UK.

There is liable to be a case coming to Court shortly involving our Prime Minister, so the Courts here will need someone unbiased (i.e. not English). I think you should put your name forward for this.


Edited to ask - do the Dwarfs have red beards? If so, then they are undoubtedly the spiritual avatars of certain famous English dwarfs, which were involved in a long-running Court Case some years ago.....

It appears to me to be a clear cut case of religious persecution..

removing a person from his job on the basis of his beliefs..not on.. unless it has adversely affected his ability to pass proper and legal judgements, I can see no more reason to do this than to remove a man because he is a Wiccan or a Bhuddist or a Hindu.. Were the verdicts rendered by this judge considered legal and sound?.. then what he believes has no bearing on what he can contribute to the judiciary..

Those dwarves have every right to retlaiate against this prejudicial sanction..

just makes me angry at how unenlightened some can be..

too right....some of our judges actually believe that some Romans crucified this Jewish bloke and made sure he died by shoving a dirty great spear in his side, and that the Jew rose from the dead...I mean come on!

Mystic dwarves? Heck, why not. Back in the 80's my ex-wife believed that George Michael was straight and that Milli Vanilli coud sing and no one tried to get her committed.

Mind, aren't mystic dwarves more of a Norse thing than a Filipino phenomenon?

good am, it is now 12noon here philippines just opened this

i think judges are appointed by politicians called presidents, governors and prime ministers, call them what names by countries, so,
very few jurists would be unbiased,
like me, who was very arrogant vocal against corruption and i am INGRATO or ungrateful to the one who appointed me coz i am a philosopher PLATO and socrates said POLITICS is bad

seriously
you mentioned UK

These dwarves are CHANNELS


In very long 23 pages RUSH board, I adequately explained the mysteries of these dwarves

THEY TAKE human forms so that their presence would be felt by unbelievers, the INFIDELS to see is to believe

but many things cannot be seen but are for REAL
even america's best air force is still perflexed by UFO's true or fiction?


well, Luis Armand and Angel they are the KING of Kings of all 4 elementals (air water earth and fire, as you see, the ranking is based on the lights, like you, 5 star general, here brigadier general commodore etc, LUIS has the violet and white lights not possessed by all these

creatures as Sam Chambers interviewed me, they have beards, but Luis is FILIPINO dwarf, so black hair beards

They are holy angels and utter ENEMIES of evil the black dwarves

it warms my heart

i cannot really believe that i would be sitting in the computer BENCH instead of penning decisions of the bar in the BENCH,

I AM just renting a house, and so stupid to refuse bribes, to berate the judiciary, to be so arrogant and critical of corruption here,
it is just that i predicted the STROKE of a JBC member who nominated the 15 justices here who broke a deal dirty settlement to pay me cheap 3 years backwages just to be quiet

but google made me immortal with over thousands of blogs forums and world reports

this hip-hop forum even made my thread best ever

what is remarkable is that in a forum of teens from japan, they corrected my statement that i found KINDNESS from the far far other side of the earth, since they are children beside me
and
initially, when i just learned computer on april 7 to reply and talk to the world
Immortality in world judicial history
i was banned in about 3 of 50 forums coz of copy and paste
but
now the problem is
when they discovered that i am the real judge who never hired secretary to reply to these PART OF MY GOLDEN MEMORABILIA printed in epson color printer A4 photo quality inkjet paper so beautiful,
the forums would really ask specific questions that
would take about 5 hours a day just to answer one page

Dismissed judge, elfin pals claim immortality

Mystic dwarves

I find myself in the the Far East again and never cease to be astonished at the legal news here. If you were a lawyer in Manila you may not be surprised to find that a local trial judge reportedly changed from blue court robes to black each Friday in order to "recharge his psychic powers". What might suprise you, however, is the fact that Judge Floro consulted three mystic dwarves named Armand, Luis and Angel, whom he claimed had helped him to carry out healing sessions during breaks in his chambers.

The Philippines Supreme Court has now reportedly sacked Judge Floro, observing that his "dalliance with dwarves would gradually erode the public's acceptance of the judiciary as the guardian of the law, if not make it an object of ridicule." I love that the Supreme Court is worried that judicial alliances with magical dwarves might gradually erode the public’s confidence in the judiciary. So a one-off dalliance is OK? I wonder what our Lord Chief Justice would say.

MY CASE is not really about religious persecution, since Justice Nazario approaced Justice Hermosisima, to SETTLE my case for $ 21,000 or cheap 3 years backwages, since 8 justices here were MEDICALLY operated due to my predictions of punishment to them by these 3 angels
for RECEIVING BRIBES as many jurists around the world does

they just made it a case of dwarves to prevent me from being a legal martyr so to speak in legal parlance

but it never crossed their minds that putting me to be QUIET sparked WORLD reports of ridicule coz AMERICA and UK etc are cursing these violations of the constitution:

Interesting is this MORONS defense for me against religious persecution

A judge in Manila, Philipines, was fired from his position after admitting to consulting imaginary "mystic dwarves" during breaks.

If anyone remembers a story from last year about Jeb Bush's imaginary friend Chang, and those who remember thought the story was a pip, this should be right up your alley: A judge in the Philipines who claims he can see into the future and consults with "mystic dwarves" has been fired by the country's Supreme Court and fined 40,000 pesos. Florentino Floro, a trial judge in Manila's Malabon suburb, has appealed to the high court to get his job back. After filing his appeal, Floro told reporters, "They should not have dismissed me for what I believed(.)"

Floro was canned after a three-year investigation found him "incompetent", that he had shown bias in a case he was trying, and that he has "criticized court procedure". Floro told investigators that three mystic dwarves, named Armand, Luis, and Angel, helped him carry out "healing sessions" during breaks. although the court could not declare Floro insane, they agreed with the court clinic's findings that he suffers from psychosis.

I personally don't see what's so bad about this - this is just my viewpoint, but is it all that different from consulting an all-powerful man in the sky?

Jeb Bush has an imaginary friend named "Chang" who helps him fight for right-wing extremism...

Chang the mystic spirit warrior

2/3 have imaginary friends

A lot of people have an imaginary friend at one time or another. It's just that most of us part ways with these pretend people well before we enter adult life. Florida governor Jeb Bush has an imaginary friend named "Chang" who he told everyone about during a ceremony naming Rep. Marco Rubio as the 2007-2008 state House speaker:
Chang is a mystical warrior. Chang is somebody who believes in conservative principles, believes in entrepreneurial capitalism, believes in moral values that underpin a free society.
I rely on Chang with great regularity in my public life. He has been by my side and sometimes I let him down. But Chang, this mystical warrior, has never let me down.

Governor Bush's delusion may be inherited from his father, former President George H.W. Bush (aka Bush Sr.). He was quoted in a 1989 Washington Post article on politics in tennis as threatening to "unleash Chang" to intimidate other players. It isn't clear whether President George W. Bush (aka Bush Jr.) also has a make-believe friend named "Chang."

Lester Hardy from US filed a comment on elves which really and aptly joins issue with this phenomenon:

Comments by Lester F. Hardy from United States on Thursday, June 15, 2006 at 20:12

Having read Judge Floro's posting on this blog, I am inclined to revise my suggestion. In his case I think sixteenth century Spain would be a far better choice than contemporary Iceland. Icelandic elves, at least in so far as I can judge from the available literature, have little or nothing in common with avenging angels and similarly disposed spirit guides. Torquemada, on the other hand, might have found a use for Judge Floro's unusual capabilities.

Dwarfs and Judges

Comments by Lester F. Hardy from United States on Thursday, June 15, 2006 at 14:00 -
I think perhaps that what Judge Floro needs is a simple change of venue. Consider Iceland, where government agencies consult maps identifying the location of elf-abodes before siting projects (a google search will readily turn up articles by Rolf Soderlind of Reuters, Colin Nickerson of the Boston Globe, and Sarah Lyall of the New York Times (7/13/05).
The consideration given in some nations to elf-habitat has prompted at least one observer to suggest that elves enjoy legal protection, or "elf rights", in both Iceland and Ireland (look for "Do Elves Have Rights" by Jeremy Harte; see also a discussion of elves in the context of a Yale Law School party at the Yale Daily News)
One has to consider the possibility that in Iceland, where according to some, 10% believe outright in the existence of elves and more than half think its possible or probable, including the President (opinion poll references shows up in a number of news articles, including those by Soderlind and Nickerson) a judge professing the beliefs expressed by Judge Soro might blend right in.
Come to think of it, the Ninth Circuit might want to consider a move as well.

Culture Oriented or REAL?

Creature features of the Philippines

Saturday, September 02, 2006

Judge Floro Florentino is not too pleased with his three spiritual guides being referred to as dwarves or duende, as superstitious Filipinos call these elf-like beings. His brother, who first saw them, called them duende, a Spanish word of ambiguous definition.
To Filipinos, they are something like tiny magical goblins who live in forested areas. There are, according to folklore, two types: black, denoting evil which can harm, and red, who are good and can heal. On the island of Mindoro, the Mangyan tribe claim to trade with the few remaining duende for forest products. They are said to be extremely shy because of the violence that has been done to them in the past.

Then there are the nocturnal Agta, tall black men who also hang out in the forests, while the Batibat, found in Ilocos, look like fat women who live inside posts, and suffocate people by sitting on top of them.

The bovine-like Mantahungal have fearsome teeth, the Pugot are self-beheading multi-formed creatures, and the Tikbalang are centaurs in reverse. These and many more magical creatures - some invisible, some half-human, half- animal - are all said to inhabit the Philippine countryside.

Many parapsychologists would RAKE money in just writing about DWARVES
coz they are not merely virtual reality but there are supremely sought for friends called spirit guides and protectors is psi language

FILIPINO JUSTICE

I spent some time in the Philippine Islands years ago, working night clubs. That was before Ferdinand Marcos and Imelda of the 1,060 pairs of shoes, were in power, but I became aware of how “informal” the judicial system was even then, when several friends came up against it and were only allowed to leave the islands after large cash bribes were openly paid to appropriate officials, all the way to the boarding gate at the airport. Strange standards in that part of the world were part of the atmosphere in which everyone lived. Now a new level of strangeness has been reached, though this time it appears that the government has effectively handled the matter.
