PALEA asks SC to sanction 2 court officers

MANILA, Oct. 21 – The Philippine Airlines Employees Association (PALEA) on Friday asked the Supreme Court (SC) to impose sanctions against two officers of the court who issued and served, respectively, a temporary restraining order (TRO) stopping their protest action outside the In-Flight Center (IFC) of national flag-carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) in MIA Road, in Pasay City.

In a nine-page letter-complaint sent to SC Spokesman and Court Administrator Atty. Jose Midas Marquez, PALEA asked that Pasay City Executive Judge Edwin Ramizo and Deputy Sheriff Virgilio Villar should be investigated and disciplinary action should be imposed on them.

PALEA, through their president Gerry Rivera, said that Ramizo violated the New Code of Judicial Conduct for Philippine Judiciary while Villar violated the Code of Conduct for Court Personnel.

PALEA claimed that the TRO was issued by the court on Monday without getting their side, which is violative of the Rules of Court.

They said that the regular courts have no jurisdiction over cases involving labor dispute.

Because of this, PALEA asked the SC to impose disciplinary action on Ramizo and Villar.

The complaint arose from a civil case filed by PAL against PALEA for their alleged illegal occupation of the perimeter area of the IFC. (PNA) RMA/PTR/utb
