Takot sa Kamara? Gadon hits Sereno for speaking in public but snubbing impeachment hearing
Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno yesterday was criticized for snubbing a committee hearing at the House of Representatives but still manages to accomodate public forums and media interviews.
“Why is CJ Sereno skipping House hearings when she has all the time doing the rounds in public forums?” Atty. Larry Gadon, the complainant in the impeachment case, said.
“Is the CJ afraid of displaying her litigation skills or lack of it? Is she avoiding the public to feast on the spectacle of no less than the Chief Justice lacking in the basic skills of litigation – unlike any experienced lawyer?” the lawyer stressed.
Also, Gadon refuted the claim of Sereno that she skipped the House hearing because she has lots of work to do at the Supreme Court.
“CJ Sereno claims she wants to focus on her duties in the SC, but why is she everywhere else discussing her case in media interviews?” he asked.
Gadon rebutted the claim of Sereno’s lawyers that she could not personally attend to her impeachment case because she has duties in the judiciary to attend to.
Gadon earlier accused Sereno of rallying support from the public, which she did not get from the judiciary.
