Trillanes: Those SC justices who voted against Sereno will be punished

     3 months ago

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV has branded as “heinous crime” the ouster of Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno and demanded punishment of the Supreme Court justices who voted against her.

“It is now the darkest hour in our democracy. The Supreme Court, which is supposed to be the cradle of our fragile Constitution, is the same body that killed it,” Trillanes tweeted.

“Those SC justices who committed this heinous crime against our justice system must not and will not go unpunished,” he said.

Sereno became the first constitutional officer to be removed from her post via quo warranto proceeding, instead of an impeachment trial. The Supreme Court, voting 8-6, granted the petition filed by Solicitor General Jose Calido that Sereno failed to meet the requirements needed for her CJ appointment.
