IMPEACH PLAINT MOVES

Voting 30-4, the House committee on justice, chaired by Rep. Reynaldo Umali (2nd District, Oriental Mindoro), on Wednesday ruled that the impeachment complaint filed by lawyer Larry Gadon against Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno is sufficient in form and substance. Gadon had accused Sereno of corruption, culpable violation of the Constitution, betrayal of public trust, and other high crimes. The committee, however, voting 28-5, dismissed the other impeachment complaint filed against Sereno by Dante Jimenez and Eligio Mallari of the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC) and the Vanguard of the Philippine Constitution, respectively, for being insufficient in form. Joining the discussion is Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas. PC/ABR
