During the Supreme Court’s flag ceremony this morning, the employees all had one protest. All dressed in red, they call out to Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno to step down from her post.

“Kami po ay nakikiusap sa inyo, mahal naming punong mahistrado, upang gawin ma ang napapanahon at nararapat na pagsasakripisyo para sa ating hudikatura, ang institusyon na iyong paglalaanan ng panahon at pagmamahal, para na rin po sa kapakanan ng buong Sambayanang Pilipino, na kayo ay bumaba na sa pwesto.”

This is what Supreme Court Employees Association (SCEA) President Erwin Ocson said, on behalf of all the Supreme Court employees.

Ruined image

According to SCEA, the reason that they are asking Sereno to step down is that the allegations that are being thrown at her are ruining the Supreme Court’s image as a whole.

Along with the members of SCEA, the members of Supreme Court Assembly of Lawyer Employees (SCALE), Philippine Association of Court Employees (PACE), and the Sandiganbayan Employees Association (SEA) also signed the statement against Sereno.

“Pinabubulaanan po namin ang mga balita o statement sa pahayagan na kami po ay pinressure o inutusan na gumawa ng ganitong pahayag at mga pagkilos laban sa punong mahistrado.”

The other side of the coin

Simultaneously, a group of people who are defending Sereno gathered and protested outside the Supreme Court.

As of now, CJ Sereno is on indefinite leave in preparation for her Senate impeachment tribunal. Last Sunday, it was announced by the House Committee on Justice that the impeachment complaint that was lodged against her has probable cause.
