Quo Warranto Petition Might be Next to Leonen’s Impeachment Case
Following Sereno’s Fate
It is a popular discussion in social media that SolGen Jose Calida’s quo warranto petition might be next. The impeachment case was filed against Associate Justice Marvic Leonen. Unlike impeachment, quo warranto does not pertain to acts committed by the impeachable officer during his term. It involves, ineligibility of the person to hold public office. So, he or she does not have the proper qualifications for the position in the first place. Therefore, an officer may be discharged from service.
Assisted by Atty. Larry Gadon
If Edwin Cordevilla’s case does not hold ground, a quo warrant might follow. Cordevilla is the Secretary-General of the Filipino League of Advocates for Good Government. Atty. Larry Gadon assisted them. It is now clear that the gatherring of evidence like the SALN and SC expenses are for this purpose.
Warning to Robredo
The presumptive VP criticizes Calida earlier. This was when the SolGen sided Marcos’ plea. They both asked for Leonen to inhibit from the protest. Since the ponente plays hard on their pleas, the Solicitor General is bound to act according to its mandate.
