No Compliance with Congress

It was agreed during the that the CA justices seek Supreme Court intervention if the House leadership insists on the “show cause order” against the three appellate justices. The justices were told by CJ Sereno “not to comply with the House processes. Instead, they should immediately file a petition for prohibition before the SC as soon as they receive the show cause order”.

Democratic Remedy

Sereno and Reyes earlier call on the House leadership to reconsider the show cause order issued by the House committee. It cites its implications on separation of powers and judicial independence. They ask House leaders to avail of all legal remedies available under the Constitution instead. These are democratic in nature. House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez rejects the call and reiterates that Sereno should discipline the CA justices.

Teeth to Teeth

The CA issues a show cause order that requires House sergeant-at-arms Roland Detabali to explain why he should not be cited in contempt for defying the release order. He also twice rejects its service twice. House officials refuse to accept the orders and insist that they are invalid. They said that the appellate court has no jurisdiction over the matter.

Hitting Two Birds

The Congress hit two birds with this statement of Imee Marcos; “I want to explain myself in Congress but others said I should not. Bongbong told me I could also be detained,” she said. First, detain the sister then second, charge the brother with obstruction of justice. It seems that Sereno is the only hope for now but she is also under close watch by netizens who are monitoring the electoral protest against Leni Robredo against further delays.
