Ousted Chief Justice nominee thrown out of hearing roomPhilippine Daily Inquirer
Lawyer Vicente Velasquez, a Chief Justice aspirant who was disqualified by the Judicial and Bar Council on Wednesday for failing to meet documentary requirements, attempted to get into the council’s hearing room Thursday but was bundled out by security personnel.
Velasquez said he wanted to secure a copy of the disqualification resolution.
He was arrested on Wednesday for alleged tax deficiency as he was preparing a petition to be filed with the Supreme Court questioning his disqualification. He posted a bail of P5,000 for his provisional liberty. Jerome C. Aning
