[News Report] De Lima Stops Vehicle Inspection

By LEONARD D. POSTRADO 03/12/2012 2:46pm

MANILA, Philippines — The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) partially stopped Tuesday the camp of dismissed bureau director Magtanggol Gatdula from conducting an inspection on the vehicle of ambushed bureau deputy director Reynaldo Esmeralda.

Acting on direct orders from Justice Secretary Leila de Lima, Assistant Solicitor General Amparo Cabotaje-Tang prevented Gatdula's camp led by his lawyer Abraham Espejo from checking the inside of Esmeralda's vehicle despite the ap-proval of Manila Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 26 Judge Silvino Pampilo Jr. through the Writ of Amparo he issued several days ago.


Supreme Court urged to junk Corona petition seeking to stop impeachment trial

 by: Edu Punay/ The Philippine Star   03/15/12

MANILA, Philippines - The Senate sitting as impeachment court and prosecutors of the House of Representatives have asked the Supreme Court (SC) to junk the petition of Chief Justice Renato Corona seeking to stop his trial for alleged violation of his constitutional right to due process.

In a 16-page comment filed through the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG), the Senate and the House invoked the authority vested in them by the Constitution to exclusively handle impeachment cases.

The OSG insisted the SC could not stop the impeachment proceedings against Corona, considering that it is only the Senate that has the sole power to try and decide all impeachment cases.

It added that there are only three specific requirements or limitations to the Senate’s sole power to try and decide impeachment cases: the senators should be under oath or affirmation; when the President is on trial, the Chief Justice shall preside (but not vote) over the impeachment trial; and the impeached public officer may be convicted upon the concurrence of two-thirds of all members of the Senate.
