Respect SC decision on Sereno — Roque

PRESIDENTIAL Spokesperson Harry Roque yesterday urged the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) to respect the decision of the Supreme Court ousting then Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno.

“Ang aking panawagan sa mga kapatid sa hanapbuhay, respetuhin talaga natin ang desisyon ng Korte Suprema,” Roque said.

The IBP on Tuesday filed a motion for reconsideration before the Supreme Court to reverse its May 11 decision granting the quo warranto petition against Sereno, saying it “has taints of political consideration and personal biases.”

While Roque respects their decision to file a motion for reconsideration, he believes the high court will not reverse its ruling.
