Lagman: 8 SC justices, dapat lang ma-impeach!

Sharing is caring!

Kailangan umanong magbayad ng 8 mahistrado ng Korte Suprema sa pagbaluktot sa batas nang agawin ang hurisdiksyon sa pagpapatalsik sa isang impeachable official.

Dahil diyan, sinabi ni Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman na nararapat lang na ma-impeached ang mga mahistradong bumoto pabor sa quo warranto petition laban kay dating Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno.

“If magistrates who are sworn to uphold the Constitution, subvert the very fundamental law by arrogating jurisdiction over an impeachable official, perforce they deserve to be impeached,” ani Lagman.

“Impeachment, not a flawed quo warranto petition, must be the appropriate sanction against the eight grievously errant justices who ousted Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno,” giit ng kongresita.

Sinabi ito ng kongresista matapos ihayag ng kasamahang si Akbayan partylist Rep. Tom Villarin ang planong paghahain ng impeachment complaints laban Associate Justices Teresita J. Leonardo-De Castro, Diosdado M. Peralta, Lucas P. Bersamin, Francis H. Jardeleza, Samuel R. Martires, Noel G. Tijam, Andres B. Reyes Jr., and Alexander G. Gesmundo.

Gaya ni Villarin, naniniwala si Lagman na dapat managot ang 8 mahistrado sa culpable violation of the Constitution at betrayal of public trust.

“The act of promulgating their unconstitutional decision completes the consummation of the impeachable offenses.Only a contrite and complete recantation by reconsidering their unlawful, controversial and unpopular decision can save the eight Justices from impeachment,” sabi ni Lagman.
