Ex-Chief Justice Davide: 8 magistrates who ousted Sereno could be impeached
Retired Chief Justice Hilario Davide Jr. managed to spit fire on the eight Supreme Court justices who voted to grant the quo warranto plea against Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno and booted her out of office.
In a forum in Ateneo de Manila University, Davide said that the mere act of voting to oust the Chief Justice “in gross and culpable violation of the Constitution” could be an impeachable offense against the justices.
Before the forum, a solidarity Mass was held at the Church of the Gesù in Ateneo. The Mass and forum were sponsored by the Association of Major Religious Superiors in the Philippines.
