Tom Villarin tells Alvarez to turn over Sereno impeach articles to Senate

0 775

It’s the only proper way. Akbayan Party-list Rep. Tom Villarin called out for House Speaker Pantaleon “Bebot” Alvarez to do his part for the impeachment of now-ousted Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno.

Asserting that only the Senate can remove the head of the Supreme Court, the politiko said Alvarez should already send to the other chamber the impeachment articles approved by the House in order to kick off the Constitutional way of removing the top magistrate.

“Transmitting the complaint to the Senate will trigger a reversal of the SC decision to oust CJ Sereno & will cure the legal abomination with impeachment as the sole remedy. It’s a judgment call of the Speaker worth making and rightfully so,” Villarin said.

Will Alvarez heed Villarin’s call?
