MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Monday swore in Larry Gadon despite his string of controversies, including a unanimous decision of disbarment by the Supreme Court.

Gadon posted photos of his oath-taking on his Facebook page.

Its caption stated, “Maraming salamat, President Bongbong Marcos (Thank you, President Bongbong Marcos).”

The ceremony was held at the Study Room of Malacañang in Manila.

The Presidential Communications Office announced Gadon’s appointment as Presidential Adviser on Poverty Alleviation on June 26.

The announcement was widely criticized.

Fifteen members of the High Court had voted to disbar Gadon due to his verbal abuse against journalist Raissa Robles.

Gadon is facing charges relating to safe spaces and cyber libel due to his actions.
