Inquirer Libre - - FRONT PAGE - DJY, MR

NAKALUSOT ang una s a dalawang reklamong impeachment laban kay Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno sa kambal na pagsala ng anyo at nilalaman noong Miyerkules.

Sa botong 30-4, nakahanap ang House justice committee ng sapat na batayan upang kasuhan si Sereno sa reklamong sinampa ng abogadong si Lorenzo Gadon.

Binasura naman ang reklamong sinampa n i Dante Jimenez, chair ng Volunteers Aganist Crime and Corruption, sa botong 28-5.

Binatikos ni Abdiel Dan Elijah Fajardo, pangulo ng Integrated Bar of the Philippines ( IBP), ang pagpapa- impeach kay Sereno.

“I just hope they exercise independent judgment and not make this a mere numbers game wherein just because of (political) party (affiliations), they will vote in favor of something that is not throughly deliberated on,” ani Fajardo sa INQUIRER.

“They should exercise restraint in the filing of the impeachment complaint because as we have always been saying, the weakest branch of government is the judiciary,” dinagdag niya.

“The legislature must be very, very circumspect in filing cases versus impeachable officials and the members of the judiciary. That’s our sentiment,” giniit ni Fajardo.
