SC justices belittle impeachment threat

MANILA, Feb. 10 – The justices of the Supreme Court (SC), who voted in favor of the issuance of the temporary restraining order (TRO) against the opening of the dollar account of Chief Justice Renato Corona, belittled the threat of one of the Congressman prosecutors that they would also be impeached.

The SC Associate Justices, who voted in favor of the TRO, were Teresita Leonardo-De Castro, Arturo Brion, Roberto Abad, Jose Perez, Lucas Bersamin, Martin Villarama, Jr., Bienvenido Reyes and Jose Mendoza.

SC Spokesman and Court Administrator Atty. Jose Midas Marquez on Friday said that they would just wait the impeachment complaint against the SC justices.

Marquez said that it seemed that the impeachment case had become a regular threat against the magistrates.

Likewise, he also assured that at present, the work of the magistrates continues and that they would decide on pending cases based only on facts.

House prosecutor Ilocos Norte (1st District) Rep. Rodolfo Farinas earlier said that he would lead in the filing of the impeachment complaint against the eight SC magistrates who voted in favor of the issuance of the TRO against the opening of the dollar account of Corona. (PNA)
