Senators ready to act accordingly if impeachment vs CJ reaches Senate

PDFPrintE-mail

Members of the Philippine Senate vowed on Monday to act accordingly if the House of Representatives decides to transmit an impeachment move reportedly against Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona.

”If it will reach us, we should also act accordingly,” Senator Panfilo Lacson said.

Lacson, however, refused to comment whether or not it is wise at this point to move for impeachment against the SC head.

”There’s a lot of posturing going on, on the part of SC and Malacañang and we have also our job to do in case the impeachment complaint is transmitted to the Senate,” Lacson said.

”So I think it’s prudent and wise for me not to give any comment regarding any impeachment moves against any member of the court,” he said.

Senator Serge Osmena III said if the impeachment come to the Senate, “we have no choice. That’s the constitutional demand of us.”

”For me, we have to look at the evidence. You have to take it decision-by-decision basis,” Osmena said.

Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile said the Senate was always ready if an impeachment move would be transmitted to the Senate.

”We are always ready. We have rules, session hall,” Enrile said.

Enrile said the Senate might use the same rules it prepared for the impeachment trial of former Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez. She resigned even before the trial started.

Senate Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III said “the Senate should be always read when it comes to impeachment.”

In a separate interview, Senator Francis Escudero said the senators were always willing and able to perform their constitutional duty.

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV said “let’s the House of Representatives tackle it but we will be ready.”

Corona reportedly disclosed on Monday a scheme to oust him and to destabilize the judiciary, expressing readiness to defend the Court against those who want to destroy it.

Corona was appointed by former President and now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo as Chief Justice seven days after the May 10, 2010 synchronized automated presidential election.

Recently, Senator Franklin Drilon criticized Corona for voting consistently in favor of the former President.

The house of representative already transmitted the impeachment moved to the senate against supreme court chief justice, Corona. What is the position of Beng and Fabian? Did they sign the impeachment moved?

There should be a constitutional amendment, abolishing the power of the president to appoint the chief supreme court justice. Or the term of the supreme court justice should be co terminus with the president who appointed him. Or further, the chief supreme court justice and it's members should be elected by the people. In this case, the decision of the chief supreme court justice and it's members will not be misconstrued as biased in favor of the president or the party of the president who appointed him. Or the chief supreme court and it's member will not willfully decide in favor of the president who appointed him. Utang na loob practice, at the expense of justice. As what is currently apparently in chief supreme court justice, Corona's case.... He put's the integrity of the court system in jeopardy, By his decision and actuations. The best thing for him to do is to resigned, for he will be definitely be impeached......
