The House of Representatives board of trustees on equity is set to vote on the reprimand argument against Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno one month from now, advisory group seat Reynaldo Umali said Wednesday.
“Apat na hearing dad. Entire month of February matatapos kami dito including voting sa board of trustees,” Umali said in a meeting on radio DZMM.
(We will have 4 more hearings. We’ll complete in February including board of trustees voting.)
Authorities from the Bureau of Internal Revenue and therapists are required to go to the succeeding hearings, Umali said.
Sereno’s Statement of Assets Liabilities and Net Worth, and her other assessment installments will be examined, he included.
Umali said the board of trustees needs to see whether the central officer is as yet fit to keep holding the position after a few of her associates in the Supreme Court affirmed against her.
“Eight judges na ang tumestigo at lahat may sinasabing hindi sinasabi sa kanya. Indeed ‘yung 4 na miyembro niya sa division niya hindi sang-ayon sa kanya,” Umali said.
“How might you lead in the event that you have an isolated court? By what method can the administration work in the event that one branch is useless?”
The House Justice Committee has been handling Sereno’s reprimand case since November 2017 after legal counselor Lorenzo Gadon recorded a denunciation argument against the central equity for chargeable infringement of the Constitution, defilement, other high wrongdoings, and disloyalty of open trust.
