The Supreme Court already ordered the start of the oral argument regarding the Quo Warranto petition filed by the Office of the Solicitor-General against Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno.

During the high court’s session in Baguio City on Tuesday, the oral argument wherein they will start discussing the Quo Warranto petition against Sereno, who is currently on leave, has been set on Apr. 10.

The Office of the Solicitor-General filed a Quo Warranto petition against Sereno, believing that with this case, it would be easier to oust the Chief Justice from her post.

There are some justices who would want Sereno to take the stand as they would want to ask raise some of their concerns from the Solicitor-General’s petition and hope that the Chief Justice will be open and comfortable in answering them.

Prior to this, the Solicitor-General insisted that the integrity of the Chief Justice has plummeted and that she shouldn’t have been chief justice in the first place because of her blatant violations including failure to declare her Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Networth every year.
