Under existing law, regular holidays are covered by executive orders while the declaration of special holidays on case to case basis is vested on the office of the President and all government offices and employees including the judiciary enjoy the holiday.
The declaration of a court holiday by some judicial courts on 14 dec. 2011 has disrupted public service where scheduled court cases for hearing were unnecessarily obstructed, suspended and aggrieved parties prejudiced.
The occasion was on account of the Chief Justice’s reaction blasting President Aquino on the impeachment charges filed against him by the House of Representatives and elevated to the Senate.
The rally was attended by Supreme Court employees and some judges of the different regional trial courts.
Some of the members of the judiciary in some parts of the country who declared a court holiday become the violators of the labor code the doctrine of no work no pay.
The model to the adherence of law has become a bad example.
