The Philippines: Solons find impeachment complaint vs Sereno in order

September 14, 2017

The first of two impeachment complaints against Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno passed the twin tests of sufficiency in form and substance on Wednesday, setting the stage for further committee deliberations at the House of Representatives.

The House justice committee, voting 30-4, found enough basis to hear the charges against Sereno, including not declaring her real wealth, buying a luxury car with government funds and making questionable decisions without consulting her fellow magistrates.

But the same committee junked the second complaint by a vote of 28-5 due to flawed wording in the verification document.
