The Philippines: Judicial group concerned over SC decision vs. Sereno, hopes due process is preserved

May 21, 2018

The Judicial Reform Initiative (JRI) has expressed concern over the decision of the Supreme Court to oust former Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno.

“We respect the power and prerogative of the Supreme Court to hear and decide on petitions brought before its chambers,” the JRI said in a statement dated May 14.

“However, we are concerned that the quo warranto petition against Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno was given precedence over the constitutionally mandated impeachment proceedings that had already progressed to a substantial extent in Congress at the time the petition was filed,” it added.

The JRI, a private sector umbrella group created by judicial advocacy groups, underscored that determining whether the accusations against Sereno have basis lies solely in the hands of the Congress through an impeachment trial.

“We take particular note of the Court’s statement in the decision that the Chief Justice ‘chronically failed to file her SALNs and thus violated the Constitution, the law and the Code of Judicial Conduct,'”  the JRI said.

“Without passing judgment on the conclusion, this can qualify as grounds for impeachment, the determination of which is left by the Constitution exclusively to Congress through the impeachment process,” it added.

Amid the decision, the JRI said it is hoping that “due process will be preserved and any motion for reconsideration given utmost respect and attention.”

The Philippines: Guevarra welcomes prosecutors arming themselves

May 17, 2018

Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra has welcomed the idea that state prosecutors arm themselves to better protect themselves from threats.

“I will support prosecutors getting firearm for self-defense,” Guevarra said in a statement.

Recently, former Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) commissioner and now 1-Ang Edukasyon party-list Rep. Salvador Belaro Jr. urged the Department of Justice (DOJ) to provide state prosecutors with bullet-proof vests and other protection devices following the killing of Quezon City Deputy City Prosecutor Rogelio Velasco.

However, Guevarra lamented that the DOJ does not have the budget at the moment to provide state prosecutors with such protective gears.

“I wish we had a budget for body armor,” he disclosed.

“For now we can only wear the breastplate of righteousness and the full armor of God,” Guevarra.

“I wish we could with bullet-proof vehicles to boot but we have to live within our means, and just do our job well,’’ the Secretary said.

Meanwhile, Guevarra has already directed the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to conduct parallel probes over the death of Velasco.

The Philippines: Lawyers hold rally vs Sereno ouster

May 15, 2018

Lawyers held a rally in front of the Supreme Court Tuesday to protest the May 11 decision of the majority of its magistrates to oust Ma. Lourdes Sereno as chief justice.

Dissenting with the decision, lawyers led by the National Union of Peoples’ Lawyers said Sereno’s ouster through the quo warranto petition is unconstitutional.

In a statement, NUPL said the “erroneous” and “shortcut” petition has far reaching effects as it slays judicial independence.

“Our democracy is in peril. Monopoly of power in the Executive without checks and balance is practically complete,” the NUPL said.

The group earlier said Sereno should have been subjected to an impeachment trial in the Senate as an impeachable official, blaming the Rodrigo Duterte government for the chief magistrate’s ouster.

“Dissent even in traditional forms are shot down. Those who stand in the way of government policy and fancy are waylaid,” NUPL said.

Press Release
Decency and Dissent

In a show of solidarity and indignation, lawyers, law students and different law groups marched to the Supreme Court today to oppose the continuing attacks against judicial independence and to express dissent on what they call as an evident and brazen pattern of an impending authoritarianism.

“The legal community has spoken : we express our strongest opposition against the ouster of the Chief Justice through a Quo Warranto proceeding not only because it is legally erroneous and unconstitutional, but more importantly, because it practically decapitated the judiciary and sent a chilling effect. Obviously, the decision has laid the predicate for authoritarianism as it completes concentration of power in the Executive. Attacks against judicial independence and the rule of justice place our democracy in peril,” National Union of Peoples’ Lawyers (NUPL) Secretary-General Atty. Ephraim B. Cortez, said in a statement.

The NUPL encouraged all members of the legal profession, law students, and court workers to stand up and rise against this de facto dictatorship.

“We are calling on members of the legal profession, law students, and court workers to make our voices heard even outside the courtroom and seek constitutional redemption from those that undermine our supposed democratic institutions,” Atty. Cortez added. ###

The Philippines: NBI, QCPD task force to probe fiscal’s slay

May 13, 2018

Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra has ordered the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to probe the killing of Quezon City Deputy Prosecutor Rogelio Velasco last Friday.

The Quezon City Police District (QCPD), on the other hand, has formed a task force that conduct a separate investigation of Velasco’s murder.

The QCPD also released sketches of two of the four still unidentified men who shot Velasco.

QCPD director Chief Superintendent Joselito Esquivel said one of the men is around 5’6” tall, around 30 to 35 years old, medium-built and fair-skinned.

The other assailant is around 5’7” tall, medium-built and fair-skinned. Witnesses said he wore a face mask at the time of the shooting.

Velasco is the fifth prosecutor killed so far under the administration of President Duterte, himself a former prosecutor.

The other four were Quezon Assistant Provincial Prosecutor Reymund Luna, Caloocan City Prosecutor Diosdado Azarcon, Quezon City Prosecutor Noel Mingoa, Rizal Assistant Prosecutor Maria Ronatay and retired Mandaluyong City prosecutor Pablito Gahol.

Guevarra said he directed the NBI to identify the perpetrators, determine their motive and bring them to justice.

The Philippines: IBP: Only Senate can unseat Chief Justice

May 13, 2018

Only the Senate, assembled as an impeachment court, has the power to oust an incumbent justice of the Supreme Court (SC), the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) said.

In a statement, IBP president Abdiel Dan Elijah Fajardo stressed that the group stands firm that a member of the SC can only be removed through impeachment and not by a quo warranto petition.

“This is pursuant to our position that only the Senate, assembled as an impeachment court, has the power to dismiss an incumbent justice of the Supreme Court on questions pertaining to his or her alleged lack of integrity,” said Fajardo.

Maria Lourdes Sereno was ousted as chief justice through an 8-6 vote during a special en banc session on Friday, favoring the quo warranto petition that Solicitor General Jose Calida has filed.

Sereno is the first SC chief justice removed from position not by impeachment. The IBP seeks the reversal of the landmark ruling.

Press Statement
May 12, 2018

SUPREME COURT MUST REDEEM ITSELF BY REVERSING DESPICABLE QUO WARRANTO RULING
By the Movement Against Tyranny

Given the widespread, vehement objection to the ouster of Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno yesterday, the Supreme Court should realize its mistake and immediately take steps to reverse its despicable ruling on the quo warranto case filed against their colleague.

The following are the most odious aspects of the SC ruling:

1. It gave due course to a petition that was prohibited under the one-year ban on quo warranto cases;

2. It violated the Constitutional provision on impeachment as the means to remove members of the High Court;

3. It effectively deprived the Senate of its Constitutional mandate to try Sereno for alleged impeachable offenses, including those cited in the quo warranto case;

4. It strikes a big blow to judicial independence, the separation of powers and system of checks and balances among the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of government;

5. It makes all sitting justices and judges of the Courts constantly vulnerable to threats and political pressure from the Executive;

6. Six of the eight justices who voted against Sereno had shown manifest bias against her but refused to inhibit themselves from the case.

The justices of the Supreme Court should repair this self-inflicted attack on the institution. They should act now to prevent the rise of a strongman who has shown utter disregard for democratic governance, human rights, the rule of law and plain decency.

If it wants to, it is not too late for the Supreme Court to save itself.#

The Philippines: IBP to appeal Sereno ouster; lawyers called to rise up

May 11, 2018

The Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) said on Friday, May 11, that it intends to seek the reversal of a Supreme Court ruling that ousted Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno.

“We are awaiting official receipt of the decision of the Supreme Court (SC) in Republic vs. Sereno, with an eye towards seeking its reconsideration or reversal,” IBP national president Abdiel Dan Elijah Fajardo said on Friday, May 11.

The SC en banc voted 8-6 on Friday to oust Sereno.

“This is pursuant to our position that only the Senate, assembled as an impeachment court, has the power to dismiss an incumbent Justice of the Supreme Court on questions pertaining to his or her alleged lack of integrity,” Fajardo said.

However, when Fajardo and the IBP first attempted to intervene, the petition was only “noted” by the Court. (READ: After ouster as CJ, Sereno says ‘the fight has just started’)

Only Congress

According to constitutional law professor Dan Gatmaytan, it is only the Congress which has the personality to challenge the quo warranto petition.

“[The Congress] would have a stronger case because they are the party in interest, because it is their function to do what the Supreme Court is trying to do,” Gatmaytan said.

Ha added: “The IBP, it’s always hard for them to defend their personality, sometimes they say they have to make sure the law is followed. That doesn’t always work in the Supreme Court especially in a case like this.” (READ: After SC ousts her, what can Sereno do now?)

But as of Friday, either chambers have not expressed intent to challenge this ruling.

The Philippines: Supreme Court ousts Chief Justice Sereno

May 11, 2018

In an unprecedented and historic move, the Supreme Court (SC) ousted Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno on Friday, May 11.

Voting 8-6, the SC en banc granted the quo warranto petition to remove Sereno from office on the basis of an invalid appointment. The decision is “immediately executory without need for further action,” SC Spokesperson Theodore Te said during Friday’s press briefing.

Sereno attended the en banc session where 8 justices voted for the quo warranto. They are: Associate Justices Teresita Leonardo De Castro, Diosdado Peralta, Lucas Bersamin, Francis Jardeleza, Noel Tijam, Samuel Martires, Andres Reyes Jr, and Alexander Gesmundo.

The 6 dissenters are as follows: Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio and Associate Justices Presbitero Velasco Jr, Mariano del Castillo, Estela Perlas Bernabe, Marvic Leonen, and Benjamin Caguioa.

Nine of the justices said she violated requirements on the Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and Net Worth (SALN). The same number of justices ruled that quo warranto was the proper remedy in the ouster of Sereno.
