Leonen, Marvic voted to expel the quo warranto appeal to trying to
exclude Chief previous Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno for her rehashed
inability to document her announcement of benefits, liablilities and
total assets (SALN).
In any case, this did not prevent Leonen from pointing the finger at
Sereno for politicizing endeavors to pry her out of the Supreme Court,
particularly her broad case that plots to unseat her was an assault on
the whole legal.
“Shockingly, in her endeavors to spare her residency of open office she
held as a benefit, this subtlety identifying with this current Court’s part
in the scary majority rules system may have been lost on the respondent.
She may have made excessively of a political story which omitted her own
responsibility and backgrounded her obligations as an individual from this
Court,” said Leonen as he would like to think.
“In a perfect world, an equity must be ease back to put forth open expressions,
alays cautious that the actualities previously her may not be the whole reality
the conclusion that the underlying push to consider her answerable for her
demonstrations was an assault on the whole legal itself ought to have been
a judgment that ought to have been deliberately weight tragically this appeared
to have made the feeling that she revived those in political developments with
their own plan, enduring assaults on her partners in social and customary
media,” he include.
Leonen reprimand Sereno for stoping down to the level of her pundits by
being the “first to cause open disgrace and mortification of her associates
and the foundation she speaks to” and when she defy the norms and talk
sub judice on the benefits of her case.
Therefore Supreme Court has made a creature in the Office of the Solicitor
General after its dubious 8-6 choice to expel previous Chief Justice Ma
Lourdes Sereno through the quo warranto request of record by the occupant Jose Calida.
As a result he would like to think, Associate Justice Mariano del Castillo said
the ponencia of the choice, Associate Justice Noel Tijam, broadcast as
“imprescriptible” the energy of SolGen Calida to start quo warranto
procedures against anyone who set out to charge from the Ombudsman
to the judges of the High Court.
“I discover the Court’s presumption of quo warranto purview over
impeachable authorities disturbing, particularly in light of the powers
which the ponencia attributes to the Solicitor General to have as for
procedures of this nature,” del Castillo said.
“The SolGen’s activity of the power is for all intents and purposes
subject to no limitation other than the activity of his/her sound
carefulness on the off chance that, as the ponencia places, this
liberate energy of the SolGen is permit to be apply against impeachable
officers, the freedom of these scary workplaces will successfully be
undermine,” he include.
He said the Ombudsman or Justices would not set out look to teach
or disbar him, individually, because of a paranoid fear of getting expell
through a quo warranto appeal.
Besides Gonzales refer versus Executive Secretary case wherein the
SC notice that enabling the President to train the Ombudsman and its
officers would void the establishment’s freedom ensured in the Constitution.
Del Castillo Support
Meanwhile with the SolGen using a quo warranto sword of Damocles
over the leaders of these officers, the Filipino individuals can be
guarantee that they will release their protect order and capacities
without support without such affirmation, there can be no assurance
that the primordial enthusiasm of the sovereign individuals is advance” he said.
On the other hand Del Castillo said Calida could even manage who remain
and who might be expell from the High Court.
Furthermore the given the forces that the ponencia proposes to supply
the SolGen with as respects quo warranto petitions against chosen impeachable
officers, the SolGen can successfully change the sythesis of this Court by causing
the expulsion of its Members,” he said.
