MANILA, Philippines – Dante Jimenez, founder of the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption, on Wednesday explained the group’s nomination of Justice Leila De Lima for the Chief Justice post.

Jimenez told Radyo Inquirer 990AM in an interview that De Lima possesses qualities required of the position of Supreme Court leader, namely confidence, diligence, competence and independence.

The VACC founder believes De Lima has the will to cleanse the judicial system  and promote independence of the institution.

    I am amused by these turn of events, viz a vi Henares vs. Delima. And, can’t help laughing out loud reading the yellow blogs fighting each other tooth and nail, insisting that one is better than the other. Unknown to them, both have distinct similarities and these are: 1. Both does not know that hearsay evidence is not admissible in court. Henares testified that Corona did not file his income tax returns for years 2003 and 2005 which was proven to be a lie. She did not even check the records of her office. In the same vein, Delima testified in open court, not of her own personal knowledge but “according to Sereno” she said. 2. Both are proven traitors. Both lapdogs loyalty has bee proven to be a fluke. Henares was fired by her previous employee for disloyalty. She was a top official of a prestigious bank but she was clandestinely working for the labor force. Some may say that it was for a noble cause. I strongly disagree. If that was her paradigm then she should have resigned first from the bank before helping the employees. Without resigning first, she took advantage of her position and traitorously stabbed the bank from behind. Proof? She lost her case against the bank which means she was removed for just cause. She even have the guts not to return the company car – BMW 318 which is now under orders of the court to return in a replevin case. In the case of Delima, she ate her benefactor GMA whole. She was the one who defied the SC TRO and prevented her benefactor the right to travel. Again, defying the TRO of the SC which you want to head is disloyalty perpetrated in advance considering that a lawyer is an officer of the court. She may have not been fired like Henares but soon to be if and when her disbarment materialized. These are the distinct similarities of the two rabid pitbulls of Malacanang who shamelessly want to be the next Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Both don’t even know basic laws and the Constitution.
