Let impeachment proceed: Ateneo de Manila urges SC to junk quo warranto case vs. Sereno
The Ateneo Law community fully supports the Ateneo De Manila University’s President Message for the on-going impeachment trial against Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno. Fr. Jose Villarin, SJ penned a lengthy testimony on judicial independence and right of the accused to a proper trial.
Villarin continues to fight for Sereno’s right to a proper impeachment trial despite the quo warranto petition initiated by Solicitor General Jose Calida. Ateneo’s president also highlighted the lack of fairness in the Supreme Court given their overt distaste or bias against the CJ.
In behalf of the Ateneo Community, Villarin expressed disappointment over this “search for accountability.” Despite the prejudice, he continues to ask for discernment in pursuing due process and maintain the pillar of independence in every SC decision.
