SERENO Surprised by appointment

As the nation mourned, President Benigno Aquino III made a historic appointment.

Mr. Aquino on Friday appointed the Philippines’ first female Chief Justice, Supreme Court Associate Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno.

Sereno becomes the country’s 24th Chief Justice. At 52, she is the second youngest to be appointed Chief Justice (the first was Chief Justice Manuel Moran, who was 51 when he was appointed in 1945).

With 18 years to go before she retires, her service will span the terms of three more presidents after President Aquino.

Supreme Court justices serve until they turn 70.

Sereno spoke to reporters on Friday afternoon after leaving her office in the company of her staff. She said she was “overwhelmed” when she learned that she was the President’s choice for the new Chief Justice.

“I would like to thank the President for the trust he has reposed in me, but most of all I give all the glory to God from whom all this goodness has happened,” Sereno said.

Asked about her independence, she replied, “Everyone can be assured that will be something that they will see.”

She added: “I would like to assure our countrymen I will keep my oath of office faithfully to the end of my term. We will deliver to the people our priorities and schedules in due time.”

Sereno said she would emulate the good governance started by Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo, whose death in a plane crash on Aug. 18 the nation is mourning.

Like Robredo’s governance

The nation, she said, “can be assured that the good governance initiatives started from the life of a very good man will find resonance here in our court.”

Sereno said: “We will deliver to the people our priorities and schedules in due time. You will know about it soon.”

Sereno was President Aquino’s first appointee to the Supreme Court. He appointed her to serve on the court as associate justice on Aug. 16, 2010.

Sereno replaces former Chief Justice Renato Corona, whom the House of Representatives impeached last December for violation of the Constitution and the Senate fired after finding him guilty on May 29 at the end of a four-month trial.

Despite mourning

Presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda announced Sereno’s appointment on Friday, saying President Aquino was confident Sereno would lead judicial reforms.

Lacierda issued a terse statement announcing Sereno’s appointment while President Aquino and his Cabinet were attending a necrological service in Malacañang for Robredo.

Even amid national mourning for the passing of Robredo, Lacierda said Mr. Aquino was “cognizant of his constitutional duty to appoint the next Chief Justice of the Philippines.”

The Constitution requires the President to fill a vacancy in the Supreme Court within 90 days of its occurrence.

Mr. Aquino beat his Aug. 27 deadline by three days.

Sereno beat seven other nominees for Chief Justice recommended by the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC): Acting Chief Justice Antonio Carpio, Supreme Court Associate Justices Roberto Abad, Arturo Brion and Teresita Leonardo-de Castro, Solicitor General Francis Jardeleza, former Rep. Ronaldo Zamora and former Ateneo College of Law dean Cesar Villanueva.

Judicial reforms

“The President is confident that Chief Justice Sereno will lead the judiciary in undertaking much-needed reforms,” Lacierda said. “We believe the judicial branch of government has a historic opportunity to restore our people’s confidence in the judicial system.”

Sereno’s elevation to Chief Justice leaves another vacancy in the Supreme Court, which the President must fill within the next 90 days.

At first, Lacierda and his deputy, Abigail Valte, refused to brief reporters on Sereno’s appointment, saying they were in mourning.

Lacierda, however, grudgingly made himself available after being criticized for favoring television stations.

No Luisita connection

He defended the President’s choice, quickly parrying suggestions of connection with the Hacienda Luisita case in the Supreme Court, where Sereno voted in favor of the compensation package Mr. Aquino’s relatives, who controlled the sugar estate, was asking.

Lacierda stressed that the case was closed and that the Supreme Court had already said it would not entertain any further motions to save the hacienda from coverage of the agrarian reform law.

He said that in spite of the mourning for Robredo’s death, Mr. Aquino managed to sit down with the nominees for Chief Justice.

“He interviewed the nominees for the position of Chief Justice,” Lacierda said. He added that the President interviewed the nominees “in a span of two days,” but that he didn’t know exactly when.

Lacierda sought to justify Sereno’s potentially long tenure on the Supreme Court.

“Obviously, this is the first time that someone as young as Justice Sereno, who’s only 52, has been appointed [as Chief Justice],” he said. “So the President believes that Justice Sereno would be the most able to institute reforms in the judiciary. That is the consideration of the President in appointing the next Chief Justice.”

Welcome to lawyers

The Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP), the association of all lawyers in the country, welcomed Sereno’s appointment, but the most outspoken legal expert in the Senate, Miriam Defensor Santiago, said she must “come down from her ivory tower” of outstanding academic background to face the real problems of a Third World judicial system.

Sereno is a former professor at the University of the Philippines College of Law.

“We would like to congratulate the President for choosing Justice Sereno as the new Chief Justice,” said Roan Libarios, president of the IBP. “In our mock elections [in the IBP], she was our Number 2 choice because we believe she has the capability to undertake the required reforms in the judiciary. She has the idealism and required capacity to implement reforms.”

Santiago, too, said she believed Mr. Aquino made the right choice, as the country’s first female Chief Justice is not identified with big business and does not owe her appointment to any lobby group.

“I understand that she has not been appointed to any judicial post,” Santiago said. “She will therefore have to take into consideration the viewpoint of trial judges as distinguished from her own outstanding academic background.”

 

Biggest challenge

That will be Sereno’s biggest challenge, Santiago said. “She is fully acquainted with the law as it ought to be. She has to raise the level of her awareness of the law as it is. In other words, she will have to come down from her ivory tower and prepare herself to confront the problems of a Third World country.”

Santiago said she did not see any problem with Sereno’s age. “She is certain to ensure continuity in Supreme Court policy because she is very young,” she said.

Santiago defended Sereno from critics who saw her appointment as President Aquino’s ensuring a Supreme Court friendly to his administration.

“That is too facile a conclusion,” Santiago said. “The Chief Justice can very well stand on her own merits. That she’s also acquainted with the thinking of the President on certain legal issues is a big plus.’

New face but insider

“It’s a well-deserved appointment,” said Sen. Franklin Drilon, chair of the Senate committee on finance and a former secretary of justice.

“This is an opportunity for her to institute real reforms in the judiciary,” he said.

Sen. Francis Pangilinan, a former chair of the Senate committee on justice, said, “Nothing less than sweeping reforms will do to ensure that the crisis facing the judiciary will be overcome. We will need the energy, creativity and stamina of a new generation of jurists to do that.”

“The President made it his personal mission to reform the judiciary … I hope she’ll build on the gains of the impeachment [of Corona],” Senate Minority Leader Alan Peter Cayetano said.

“Associate Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno is a good choice,” House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte said. “A new face yet an insider with a reputation for competence and independence. She will prove to be an effective leader of the judiciary.” With reports from Norman Bordadora, Jerome Aning, Philippine Daily Inquirer, Tetch Torres, INQUIRER.net

OMG!~ Wala nabang mapagpilihan si Pnoy pinili niya yung di qualified , walang karanasan,mahina,katumbas niya ay katulad ng isang Neophyte na kapapasa lang sa Bar exam.Tapos gagawing siyan Chief Justice? para lang di mapahiya si Pnoy at wala na siyang mapagpilihan pinili niya yung palpak! Pnoy kahit na pinili mo siya ang Chief Justice ay di siya irerespeto ng datihan at matatanda ng associated justices dapat malaman ni Pnoy paramihan ng boto yan sa pagde decide ng isang kaso, tatatlo kakampi ni Pnoy sa Korte Suprema tapos inappoint pa yung bano! OMG! binaboy ang hustisya ng bansa! kahit ano gawin ni Pnoy ang desisyon at bayad sa Hacienda Luista ay di mababaligtad kahit wala na si Corona diyan, lahat ng kaso ng mga kawatan na kaalyado ni Pnoy di rin maabswelto yan kasi paramihan ng boto diya majority votes.Dapat mag rally at mag protesta  ang IBP at ang mga magsasasaka laban sa pag kaka appoint ni Sereno ,nakakahiya na by pass yung mga justice na qualified, sabi ng ibang justices “sige SC Chief justice ka sa posisyon pero i dededma ka namin? yan ang inside na away o gulo! aakala ni Pnoy kaya niyang gawing tuta at maging Diktador siya, makakarma ka lang!

      Hindi lang ang Hacienda Luisita. Pati ang Coco Levy na ang tunay na may ari ay mga Coconut Farmers, delikado rin. Ang gusot sa Coconut Levy funds ay habang na sa kamay ni Cojuangco ang billions of Coco Levy Funds, he invested it in Commercial stocks. When it earned, he said, it was his. Tama ba yan? Ikaw ang may hawak ng Pondo, pag nalugi, sasabihin mo, talo ang investment ng mga Farmers, pag nanalo, PERA KO ITO. He he he. 

      The Coco Levy Funds is a big joke. Cojuangco has committed a conflict of interest. Why profit personally on funds that were not yours? Style ng mga Chinese sa gobyerno ito. SSS funds at GSIS funds, ganoon din. Ang nakikinabang ang mga Caretaker o Custodians.

Pag-utak talangka tayo kayo rin ang magiging dahilan ng hindi pag-unlad ng Pilipinas, tapos isisisi niyo sa gobyerno. Have faith in our new Chief Justice. We are hoping and praying for a great change in the judiciary. :)
    Bangon Pilipinas! Laban!

  • dikoy321

    P-Noy picked and appointed SEC JESSE ROBREDO as DILG Chief.
    Were it not for P-Noy, SEC JESSE ROBREDO woudn’t have the chance to touch so many lives because no corrupt leader would appoint honest, sincere and public servant PAR ECXELLENCE SEC JESSE ROBREDO to head the DILG!

    P-Noy now picked and appointed Associate Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, after the JBC submitted its shortlist, based on their rules.
    Filipinos could be very sure that P-Noy used the same yardsticks when he picked Justice Sereno to become new SC Chief, in the same way he picked SEC JESSE.

    Congratulations to our new Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Mari Lourdes Sereno!
    Slowly but surely she will prove to the Filipino nation that she is a much better character than the midnight appointee!

    MORE POWER Madame Chief Justice!

    Let’s FOLLOW the excellent example SEC JESSE ROBREDO showed us all…

    First advice – do everything the President wants regarding Hacienda Luisita lest you too be impeached.

    • KenjiHimura

      Very good piece of advice. Is this also the piece of advice you also gave to the impeached former Chief Justice? To kow-tow to every wishes of the appointing power? I hope you’re not being selective in giving this piece of advice of yours.    

      • Cal_Reznick

        Thank you for the compliment.

        Unfortunately, I did not give that advice to the former CJ. Maybe had I, he would have still been the CJ.

        That’s why, I gave this advice to the new CJ so she won’t suffer the same fate as the former.

    Sereno is one of the high court justices who pushed for a higher compensation for the Cojuangcos in the Hacienda Luisita ruling.
     
    Sereno, in her opinion on the high court’s Hacienda Luisita ruling, said that the valuation of the land should be based on current fair market value, at the time HLI was issued a Notice of Coverage on Jan. 2, 2006.
     
    If the valuation of the land would be based on the 2006 fair market value, HLI would have to be compensated some P10 billion for the total 4,915.7466 hectares up for distribution.

    Congrats to Cojuangcos for another 2 decades safe na naman ang HLI:

    Proud na proud sa achievement paano na yan pati ang supreme court yellow tard na rin hehehe 18 years na naman tayo gaguhin ng mga Cojuangco na to kawawang Juan..

    1. Sereno cast one of the dissenting votes in the Supreme Court decision
    to allow former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to leave the country
    for medial treatment.

     

    2. Out of the eight-member Judicial and Bar Council which is
    constitutionally mandated to screen and recommend applicants to the
    Judiciary and Ombudsman post, six has voted for Sereno. Presiding Chair
    and Supreme Court Associate Justice Diosdado Peralta and retired Supreme
    Court Associate Justice Regino Hermosisima did not vote for Sereno.

     

    3. Sereno is one of the high court justices who pushed for a higher compensation for the Cojuangcos in the Hacienda Luisita ruling.

     

    4. Sereno, in her opinion on the high court’s Hacienda Luisita ruling,
    said that the valuation of the land should be based on current fair
    market value, at the time HLI was issued a Notice of Coverage on Jan. 2,
    2006.

     

    If the valuation of the land would be based on the 2006 fair market
    value, HLI would have to be compensated some P10 billion for the total
    4,915.7466 hectares up for distribution.

        be rational po. wag tatanga tanga.

    Nice choice. The first woman CJSC would be better than those traditional justices who are politically and personally motivated.

    Speaking of the HL payment, Sereno’s decision is smart and logical. Will anyone of those commenters agree that the lot taken from them will be paid the same amount when they were ten or twenty years ago? What can you buy now with the price of yesteryears? It’s plain dumb and silly.

    • yellow_zombies

      The decision was made in 1989, so the payment should be in 1989 prices.

    • Atagalong

      I honestly disagree with you Anne, that the decision of the Supreme Court was dumb and silly. If you read carefully the CARP/CARL, you will see that they inserted in there a phrase of non-physical transfer of the land and thus making the tenants stockholders. Poor small landonwers either do not know how to create a coporation, do not have the money to create one or do not have the time to do the papers required of a corporation. In my opinion, it was a same old, same old maneuver by the influential people – the oligarchs. People, small people that is, were snookered good in the guise of land reform!

Napakarami mong alam, abilidad, prinsipyo at nakikita ko na wala kang kikilingan s magkabilang panig mula sa kasalukuyan gobyerno hangang sa susunod pang 3 gobyerno. Mabuhay ka Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno!!!

  • adrenalyn_high2011

    Ms. Tetch Torres….I thought you may have overlooked the TV interview with Justice Sereno…she had defended her position on the issue of “pushing for a higher compensation/  Hacienda Lusita)….this question was raised by one of the JBC panel of interviewers… ;-)

    ////Sereno is one of the high court justices who pushed for a higher compensation for the Cojuangcos in the Hacienda Luisita ruling.
     
    Sereno, in her opinion on the high court’s Hacienda Luisita ruling, said that the valuation of the land should be based on current fair market value, at the time HLI was issued a Notice of Coverage on Jan. 2, 2006.
     
    If the valuation of the land would be based on the 2006 fair market value, HLI would have to be compensated some P10 billion for the total 4,915.7466 hectares up for distribution.////

  • Atagalong

    Ano Ikaw, you got something there. This was, in my opinion, a “lutong Macao!”  The people were drawn to the incessant demands of Secretary of Justice De Lima for reconsideration by the JBLand was being assisted by the administration. Why don’t people have an inquiring mind to see the reason why of all people did the Malacanang legal eagles were at works with De Lima’s status notwithstanding her being  unqualified to become a justice of the Supreme Court? All you need to do is to connect dots. His newly appointed justice was the very person who insisted that the Cojuangcos get the  present going rate of land compensation vice the rate at the time the CARP became law. The little land owners got snookered in but the big fishes continue in their good old ways to gobble up the smaller ones. In other words, the De Lima episode was more of a drama to hide the hidden agenda of making Sereno the new Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. I pray that HLI willl not come back to the Supreme Court for another reconsideration. I hope other justices will let their consciences be their guide.

    • johnllander

      Your prayer is heard kasi tapos na ang isyu ng HLI, in fact the case is now passed to the DA for distribution.

      You have no other reason other the HLI for going against the appointment of Sereno.  Whatever is the action of the president, you will look for reasons just to protest, and protest and protest.

    • joyes

      Just be vigilant.. That’s what Pnoy wants yung CJ na mahawakan nya sa leeg para magawa nya ang gusto nya. If you trace Serenos position sa mga desenting opinions nya always infavor kay Pnoy and his clan.. Just pray for our country..kahit media hindi maka diskarte sa reporting tinitira agad ni Pnoy.. wala na democracy ito.. In this situation I believe God is still in control and He will not allow injustices and persecution reigns because He loves us all..He always seek for those who are lost which means yung mga naligaw ng landas. We all are sinners but saved by the grace of God if we believed in Him and obey His commands. One of His commands is to help our brothers who have gone astray in His teachings and beliefs. Sometimes great trials happens to awaken your  sincerity in obeying His commands.

      • JJF724

    I agree that HLI should be compensated according to current market value that is not fair for the rest of private owner now to get peanuts for their properties.  The Aquinos lost but not the cojuanco.  Obviously Corona’s decision and influenced to hit the Aquino only as he compensated the Cojuanco of 60Billions money from COCO farmers funds.

      Please research the issue more carefully specifically on why the majority of the SC Justices (…not just Corona) did not agree with Sereno on the application of the current market value compensation. I would love to discuss it here but I don’t have time.

      Read past news and reports.  It was not as simple as you think. You will be enlightened…

  • tagasampaloc

    Congratulations to Sereno. I say her appointment went thru legal selection process, an insider and was shortlisted by the JBC and a standout in the public interviews. Her selection is a given conclusion after that.
    Only the camps of Binay and Arroyo would be unhappy:  Binay’s chance to the presidency dims and Arroyo’s too numerous charges and complaints do not stand a chance to be set aside!
    Also all other seniors in SC would have no chance to be CJ for 18 years. WHEW!!!

    No wonder. Who has sworn in Abnoy?  She is a perfect substitute of De Lima and will do anything Abnoy wants. And that for 18 years, so he can be sure that there wquld be no charging him in case he will not be able become lifelong president or prime minister.  At least all possible cases will be thrown out by the SC. And threre are some more justices he can replace with asslickers, after retirement or by impeachment. Let us see what will happen to the Luisita case which was successful delayed by thedepartment and what will happen to coco levy and other cases.
    What he said about Corona? GMA appointed him to protect her after stepping down. And Sereno? Wow, why Robredo was the victim, it always hit the wrong one, the good one.

        Hindi P10B. Ang final decision ng SC ay base sa 1989 na halaga ng lupa. At hindi gobyerno kundi ang mga farmer beneficiaries ang magbabayad noon. Maraming taon nila huhulugan iyon.

    Congratulation CJ Sereno. We are praying however that with you at the helm the independence of the SC will be upheld. It should be the law first and not Noy that should prevail. Push the SC to a higher level and not bring it to the level of being called as Aquino Supreme Court. Malaki ang utang na loob mo kay Noy as her first appointee in the SC and now as chief justice. At 52 you are still very young and will be staying in office longer than the current and next two presidents. I hope the Noy did not make a mistake because you will be difficult to remove if he did in appointing you. Noy has already made a lot of blunder in his appointment but he never say sorry on them to the public, he is not known to it. You are a very intelligent and well educated lawyer, your credentials speaks for itself. Still all we need is your adherence to independence of the SC and your recent opinion in pushing for a higher compensation for the Cojuangcos in the Hacienda Luisita ruling gave a a glimpse of your closeness to the president. You will be about 70 years old when your term ends at the Supreme court sana di kami mag sawa sa sistima mo sa SC.

    Now what chance has Gloria to leave the country (again)? Now what chance has Gov. Gwen Garcia (controversial governor of Cebu) to leave the country again? The excuse of the first one is “medical reason”. The excuse of the second one first to attend the canonization of a Cebu “saint” in the Vatican. Then gov. Gwen changed her mind she want her travel ban lifted  because she goes to China for a “an economic conference”. Well well well gov. Gwen is so  high headed she think of herself that of importance being “invited” by the Chinese in Macao. hhhmmm Macao is the “Gambling capital “of South East Asia. Is she planning to court investment from the Chinese to put up a Cebu Casino ? (with commission of course to herself)..Belgian T.V. documentary exposed that Cebu is the “Crime capital” of the Philippines .. BOTH ARE LIARS.

Hold your breath Filipino people and take notice of any overturn of the Hacienda Luisita decision.

    President’s choice for Chief Justice could have hidden millions earned from Piatco caseSUPREME Court (SC) Associate Justice Maria Lourdes Aranal Sereno, who is being eyed by President Benigno Aquino 3rd as replacement of Chief Justice Renato Corona, would face impeachment, perjury and tax-evasion
    charges if she failed to disclose her fat earnings from her stint as part of the government’s legal team in the case involving Fraport AG and Philippine International Air Terminals Co. (Piatco).A reliable source on Wednesday claimed that Sereno’s legal team got a whopping P2.65 billion in salaries and allowances during litigation of the cases filed by Fraport and Piatco against the government. The case stemmed from cancellation of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) 3 contract, which would have allowed Piatco to construct the $650-million airport facility. Fraport filed a compensation case before the World Bank’s International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), while Piatco lodged a damage suit before the International Chamber of Commerce in Singapore. In 2010, ICSID ruled in favor of the Philippine government. An Ad Hoc Committee in Washington, however, overturned the ruling.In her statement of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN), Sereno in 2010 declared assets of P17.9 million.Documents that contain disbursement vouches issued by the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) and confidential requests for payments made by the Office of the Solicitor General to cover the payment for OSG lawyers, International Counsel White and Case law office including experts and consultants including Sereno and her mentor, retired SC Justice Florentino Feliciano, showed that a gargantuan P2.65 billion was released by the government.More than 20 disbursement vouchers were obtained and were paid by MIAA to the OSG to defray expenses and allowances of the legal team of Sereno and Feliciano.“If her total declared assets were only P17.9 million, where were her earnings from the Piatco case? She is part of the legal team in Washington and in Singapore and we saw her during her travels along with Justice Feliciano,” the source of The Manila Times noted.He warned that Sereno could be charged with culpable violation of the Constitution—an impeachable offense—if she did not declare her real earnings from the Piatco case.“Were the correct taxes paid by Justice Sereno with her earnings in the Piatco case? If not, she could also be charged with tax evasion,” the source said.While it is true that Sereno and Associate Justice Antonio Carpio have made public the contents of their SALN, these were just summaries, not detailed statements.The source called for a probe of Sereno’s SALN.According to a court insider who talked to The Times on condition of anonymity, the legal team in the Piatco case made the Philippine government a “milking cow,” seeking allowances for expensive hotels and accommodations on top of princely salaries.Sereno was rewarded by President Aquino with the SC portfolio after winning the case in the first round.But a government official who was also involved in the NAIA 3-Fraport and Piatco case who talked to The Times also on condition of anonymity said that Sereno was just a “documentation lawyer.”“It is totally inaccurate what was published in the newspapers that Sereno appeared to be the head of the legal team in the Piatco case that later on caused her appointment to the Supreme Court. She was just a documentation lawyer after she was tapped by Justice Feliciano into the legal team,” the source said.The source added that “Sereno did not argue at all in the Piatco case because she does not have any experience in litigation.”“Sereno was just a legal researcher. Nothing more, nothing less,” the source said.Carpio and Sereno have sent copies of their respective SALN summaries to the group Kaya Natin Movement for Good Governance and Ethical Leadership and Newsbreak, an online news magazine. Sereno released her SALN on December 28, 2011.Based on her summaries, she had total assets worth P17,996,810.82 and total liabilities of P155,457.17 for the year 2009, for a total net worth of P17,841,353.65. For 2010, she declared total assets of P17,904,510.14 and total liabilities of P142,342.88 for a total net worth of P17,762,167.26.Sereno is being eyed by Malacañang as possible replacement of Corona if he is convicted by the Senate impeachment court. The Manila Times tried to get the side of Sereno through her daughter Pia, but the magistrate refused to be interviewed.

    hope there will be checks and balance not “chicks” and balance…

    For the new CJ Sereno, may your decisions, promulgations and judgments be firm, unbiased, fair, honest, with sense of propriety, morally sound, and most of all, exercised with judicial independence in your stint as CJ for an equivalent of 3 presidencies…the bosses will watch your every move…

        January 25, 2012
        “Accordingly, Sereno lied before the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) in her
        application for the High Court’s post, claiming she was a lecturer at the
        Hague Academy of International Law.
        “That is absolutely false,” a Tribune source said. “She was never a
        lecturer at the Hague Academy.”

        CJ nominees get low grade in mental test

        Published on 24 August 2012 Jomar Canlas, Reporter

        TWO frontrunners in the race for the chief justice got very poor marks
        in the psychological test recently given by the Judicial and Bar Council
        (JBC) to nominees for the position.

        Of the eight nominees in the JBC shortlist, Supreme Court Associate Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno and Solicitor General Francis Jardeleza got the lowest psychological evaluation rating.

        Based on an 11-page Psychiatric and Psychological Report submitted to
        the JBC by a group of two medical psychiatrists and two psychologists,
        Sereno and Jardeleza got a grade of “four” after the tests.
        “I cannot understand JBC right now. It is very clear that if an ordinary lawyer, judge or justice applying for promotion got a grade of four in their psychiatric test, they will not be recommended. But in this case, the ones applying want the chief justice position and the Council still managed to vote for those who got low marks in their psychiatric tests. That is a dangerous precedent,” the source said.

      • KenjiHimura

        Thanks for the info nparvus1202. However, the best evidence is  the 11-page Psychiatric and Psychological Report itself submitted to the JBC by a group of two medical psychiatrists and two psychologists. Perhaps this reporter and its source get a hard copy of the report and have it published to back up its claims otherwise it is mere hearsay.

      • jga94

        There have been attempts to get other CJs or SC justices or even other impeachable officials impeached but none have prospered or were successful until Corona….this just goes to show that it is NOT that easy to have someone removed thru impeachment…..and this meachnism is a NECESSARY in the checks and balance of a democratic country……

        Hindi ganun kadali kasi alam ng mga kongresista na may repercussions….undesirable public opinion which can eventually lead to a lose in subsequent elections….

        IMO, the impeachment of Corona is not an example of “disgusting politics”….it was the way Corona was appointed CJ that is an example of “disgusting politics”

      • http://www.facebook.com/julian.lennon.31 Julian Lennon

        no one is disagreeing with the impeachment as a democratic tool… but its an undeniable fact as well that ever since the ouster of Marcos and we’ve probably changed presidents 3 or 4 times since then, the succeeding administration has really nothing else in their own agenda other than to go after the previous administration. I dont mean to imply that we simply let them get away with it, but let it be one of the agenda and not the ONLY. 

      • lostRunes

         How pork barrel was used is an example of “disgusting politics”

        How the lawmakers made palusot of not showing their SALN to the public is an example of “disgusting politics”

        Pero it’s a good thing that because of the impeachment, people are closely observing the Supreme Court….noon pa maraming kabulukan ang Judiciary system…hindi lang siya masyadong pinapansin…pero dahil sa impeachment, mnalagay na sa public scrutiny and Judiciary….I say that’s a good thing….

        PS.You –as well as many others here at least–obviously do not like PNoy….but could you please not use derogatory names…it’s so uncalled for…he is the duly elected president….that you cannot deny na he really won….so in deference to the people who voted for him, sana KINDLY just give ut your criticisms in a RESPECTFUL manner…I’m sure ikaw gusto mo ring respetuhim ka….

    Akala ko pa naman, neutral si PNoy. Yuon pala, may string attach. Yan ay ang pagka vote ni Serrano na Current Value ang valuation ng Hacienda LUisita at hindi ang dating napagkasunduan na 1989 price na 173 million pesos. Serano made a dissenting vote, which means she favors the current price which amounts to 10 billion pesos. 

    He he he. You never trust a Chinese word. Never! May string attach pala ang appointment. O.K. Gawin ni PNoy yan na baliktarin NANAMAN ang FINAL AT EXECUTORY AT ETO NA ANG HANGGANAN NG PASENSYA NG PINOY. Baka gusto ni PNoy magkagulu na tayong lahat. Mantakin mo, the first indication that the SC is not independent as it wants to be perceive is when it over turn the decision on the again, FINAL AND EXECUTORY in the case of the FASAP. If this against happen, alam na ng mga Filipino kung sino ang kalaban natin. Baliwala ang pinsala ng NPA kumpara sa nakawan at korruption ng ating Chinese government. Bastusan na!

    • jga94

      What have you got against Filipino-Chinese?

      kaya nga let’s wait and see….remember si Sereno gave a DISSENTING OPINION in the FASAP flipflop case…..in her dissenting opinion:

      “In her Dissenting opinion, Supreme Court Justice Lourdes Sereno wrote, “… If this Court is to adhere to its character as a court of last resort, it must stop giving never-ending refuge to parties who obstinately seek to resist execution of our final decisions on the sole ground of their counsel’s creativity in re-labelling a prohibited second motion for reconsideration, or the changing composition of the three Divisions of this Court. Otherwise, the Court might as well lay to rest in the sepulcher the founding judicial principles of immutability and res judicata.”

      tapos yung opinion ni Serreno tungkol sa HLI compensation…may punto din naman sya…she explained her side why she sided with the 2006 valuation….eh minority sya eh…huwag nyo naman pangunahan sya…di pa nga nakakupo eh puros reklamo na kayo….

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/TI55XLCNTWAACFSQMEP3AOSHPA Mita

    For those who insist on bringing up the HLI issue (which is actually off-topic):  The Supreme Court ruled on 4/24/2012 that HLI compensation for land would be based on 1989 prices.  The ruling is final hence, the amount due to HLI is NOT P10B.  It is the farmer beneficiaries and NOT the government who will ultimately pay the agreed amount over a period of many years.  The government only facilitates the sale by issuing the necessary documentation (ownership docs, bonds, etc) and through Landbank, it also acts as a collection agent for the landowner.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZKPNHSPBMK74VZ3GBIPNTJA7KE Edwin

      babaligtarin yan kahit final…

    • http://www.facebook.com/lolo.mo.73997 Lolo Mo

      Hindi ba final din at executory ang decision ng SC in favor of the FASAP. 5 letters lang galing sa abogado ni Lucio Tan, si Estelito Mendoza, biglang bumaliktad ang mundo ng mga member ng FASAP. O, ANO ANG SAY MO? There is a likely chance that ang salitang FINAL and EXECUTORY NG SC ay anything but that.

      Nakakatakot na ang tema ng SC espacially that all members of our SC has 101% Chinese blood. :You can never predict their actuations. Kaya pala talo lahat ng Labor Issue na dinala sa Supreme Court dahil, pro-investors ang mga damuhong mga JUdge. Mantakin mo, sa PAL, diyan ka na tumanda, 30 years at malapit ka nang mag-retire, bigla kang gagawing contractual. Union busting, yet, our insane Supreme Court just step aside and let Lucio Tan maul the protesting PALEA members? Anong klaseng utak ang may roon ng mga SC Judges. They don’t seems to possess moral ascendancy.

      Remember, ALL SUPREME COURT JUDGES ARE MULTMILLIONAIRES. AND MANY GOT IT AS MEMBER OF THE HIGHEST MAGESTRATE. DO YOU STILL TRUST THESE CLOWNS?

      DURING ERAPS TERM, they accepted Gloria as the next President even if it is illegal. How can you declare gloria when the members of the oppositions walk out of the Senate. Yet, the SC headed by the Chief investigator Hilario Davide in the Senate, Hilario Davide who sworn in Gloria as the next president, Hilario Davide who accepted his appointment as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Hilario Davide who was in favor of Gloria as the legitimate President, even if ERAP was not impeach, ano ang say mo?

      Si kapal moks na si Justice Carpio, gusto pang umambisyon bilang CJ, hindi na siya nahiya, ang pinsan niyang si Conchita CARPIO Morales, head of the Ombudsman, he he he. Walang delikadesa itong mga Chinese sa Supreme Court natin. Walang moral ascendancy. Ang morality ay wala sa kanilang bokabolary. O, ano?

  • Albert Einstien

    NEWS: MANILA TIMES 8/24/2012  
    Of the eight nominees in the JBC shortlist, Supreme Court Associate Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno and Solicitor General Francis Jardeleza got the lowest psychological evaluation rating.Based on an 11-page Psychiatric and Psychological Report submitted to the JBC by a group of two medical psychiatrists and two psychologists, Sereno and Jardeleza got a grade of “four” after the tests.An unimpeachable source, who disclosed the contents of the documents, said that the report was verified and noted by a lawyer whose name shall not be revealed in accordance with the doctor-patient confidentiality rule. Copies of the psychological report were distributed to JBC members during their July 19, 2012 preliminary meeting. The report bore the markings “Strictly Confidential.”On the first page, it was explained that all of the candidates who applied for the position of chief justice shall be graded under the “Five Point Numerical Rating System.” A grade of 1 shall be considered as the highest or most superior, 3 shall be the median and five shall be the lowest or a failing mark.A court insider lamented that JBC is becoming a “puppet” of Malacañang because of the inclusion of candidates who almost flunked the psychological test in its shortlist.“I cannot understand JBC right now. It is very clear that if an ordinary lawyer, judge or justice applying for promotion got a grade of four in their psychiatric test, they will not be recommended. But in this case, the ones applying want the chief justice position and the Council still managed to vote for those who got low marks in their psychiatric tests. That is a dangerous precedent,” the source said. President Benigno Aquino 3rd has until August 27 to appoint a new chief justice.DepressiveSereno was interviewed on July 18, 2012, but despite her low mark, the JBC included her in the shortlist of nominees after she got six votes.Under the existing policy of the JBC, an applicant to any position in the judiciary who garnered a grade of 4 will no longer be recommended. A candidate who got a grade of 5 shall automatically be rejected for being “mentally disturbed.”In the case of Sereno, the report said that she keeps a smiling face to project that she is happy. According to the report, Sereno is “dramatic and emotional, she appears energetic and all smiles and agreeable, but with religious preoccupation in almost all significant aspects of her life. She projects a happy mood but has depressive markers too. There is a strong tendency to make decisions based on current mood thus, outcome is highly subjective and self-righteous,” the report said.

      Yan ang gusto ko sa Democracy natin, lumalabas ang katotohanan. He he he. Baliw pala. He he he. Dalawa na sila ni moymoy. Mantakin mo, si Robredo, gusto pang gawing bayani! 

      Kung hindi ba naman baliw. Kung hindi mayabang at matigas ang ulo ni Robredo, sana buhay pa siya. Sinabi na ng Naga Tower na hindi papayag sa flight ni Robredo, ang ginawa ng kumag, tumawag sa cell-phone, kinausap ang NAGA Tower upang buksan ang Airport. Yan ba ang gagawin mong bayani. Akala niya sasantuhin siya ni kamatayan dahil DILG Chief siya. HE he he. Hindi ko pinagtatawanan ang nangyari ke Robredo, ngunit, sa katigasan ng ulo, na aksedente tuloy.

      Mabudi RAW SIYANG TAO, ngunit ang pagiging over acting sa dami ng acculate at ceremonya na binigay sa kanya, mukang may bahid Chinese ang nangyayari. Dahil ba Chinese ang parents ni Robredo, Chinese din si PNoy, at si Roxas, gagawin ninyong Bayani si Robredong matigas ang ulo?

      The spinmaster who is spewing this is probably the same one who came up with the PNoy spurious psychological report during the campaign which turned out to be a downright lie…..if the source is so unimpeachable….why isn’t there a name?

      Ang galing talaga….ang pipilian nilang panira ay yung mga bagay tulad ng psychological test na inherently ay private/personal in nature kaya may confidentiality clause na kasama…..tapos yung mga tests na ganito subject ito to interpretation only by a qualified expert….I do not know of any one test that if given can give the “personality” of someone just based on a score esp. kung isa lang test….kaya nga experts/qualified persons lang yung nagbibigay ng mga tests kapag sa court na…….hindi yung mga tests na katulad na binibigay sa mga magazine/yung mga online personality chuva………sounds made up to me…….

      kaya nagkaka-argument yung mga against FOI bill…kasi andaming nagkalat na nagmamarunong….maggagawa ng sariling interpretation o kaya pagtatagpi-tagpiin ang mga bagay-bagay para maging isang bagay na kapakipakinabang sa sariling interes…..

    I just verified in the Manila Times Aug. 24, 2012 edition that indeed Serrano was one of the two CJ aspirant who get the lowest in the Psychiatric evaluation. At ang sabi pa ng writer, the JBC by selecting a poorly rated candidate as the next Chief Justice is unprecedented. He  he he. This is really one for the book. I even catalogue this new in my Computer so I will not be mistaken if I quote it again in the near future. 

    Sira na ang candidate, sira rin ang JBC, at sira rin ang nagappoint sa kanya bilang final CJ. Saan kaya pupunta itong bansa natin kung may sakit sa ulo ang Executive, tapos, he he he. Pinili rin niya ang isang sira ang ulo bilang CJ. Ops, wala nang urungan. 18 years na tayong magdurusa under a poorly rated psychological evaluation candidate.

Sa batas, eto ang tinatawag na Just Compensation.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/DMQAY7DYUDLP25XC3P6QTWRXLE A

        point number 1. Bakit current fair market value ang batayan eh di ba dapat noong una pa na implement iyang AGRARIAN? sa halip stock certificates ang binigay ng mga tenants. Who should be accountable bakit sobrang delay iyang implementation ng agrarian reform sa Hacienda Luisita?

        point number 2. Ikaw ang tanongin ko, okey lang ba sa iyo na pigilan ka pag-alis ng bansa na wala pang WARRANT OF ARREST laban sa iyo?

      yung si Atty Rowena Carpio.

      madalas sya lumabas sa channel 7 nung impeachment.

      kung may huhusga man kay Sereno, hayaan na natin ang simbahang katoliko.

      baka mauwi lang sa moral ascendancy ulit ang away, kung lumabas sa media.

      basta ako, libog na libog na ako kay Sereno.

    Compared to the last person  to the position,  this was an excellent appointment which hopefully will begin in the transformation of an S.C. sans patronage system.  But then we should also be cautious about high expectation.  Not too long ago it was the late Jaime cardinal Sin who lauded the ascension of Gloria Pidal to the presidency claiming she will do what is right for the country. We all know what happened to Juan dela Cruz ‘kaban’ under her watch.

  • twitgurl

    itong serena na ito ang nag panukala na bigyan ng malaking compensation ang mga cojuanco na TAX ng taong bayan ang pambabayad? ano ba ang nagawa nitomg serena na ito at siya ang napili? dahil ba TUTA at LAPDOG siya ni panot? galit siya dati sa administration dahil tuta ni gloria si corona eh gawain din pla ni panot.. ang dami jan na mas deserving na hindi nasali sa listahan dahil alam nila ppapagalitan sila ni panot..

At sa tingin mo ngayong si Sereno ang CJ eh kaya niyang baliktarin ang final na decision ng previous SC para lang mapasaya ang Pangulong Noynoy? Isang boto lang si Sereno di ba?

      • Abnoy’s Mongoloidism

        parekoy, mali naman yan. kaya lang naman napasa-cojuangco ang Luisita ay dahil sa loan ng GSIS. hindi naman pera ng mga cojuangco ang ginamit sa pambili sa Luisita.

        basta ako, nalilibugan pa rin ako kay sereno. at yan ang pinakaimportante. wag nga lang lumabas sa media na isa syang lesbiyana, baka sampahan sya ng kaso ng simbahang katoliko.

      • joshmale2004

        May sinabi ba akong minana ng mga Cojuangco ang HLI? Wala naman ata di ba? Pakibasa ulit tanong ko. Ang tanong ko lang ay kung payag siya sa presyong ibibigay sa kanya. Sagot ka ng sagot di mo pala naiintindihan sinulat ko. Wala naman akong binanggit tungkol sa mga Cojuangco at HLI ah.

      • twitgurl

        MInana? FYI lang hnd sa mga cojuanco yang lupa na yan.. sa gobyerno yan na pinahiram lang sa mga cojuanco..

      • joshmale2004

        Teka. Wala naman akong sinabing minana ng mga Cojuangco ang HLI ah. Kaw lang tinatanong ko ng ibang senaryo. Ang punto ko sa tanong ko sa yo eh kung payag ka sa pricing na ibibigay sa yo. Yun ang sagutin mo. Wag mo lagyan ng ibang lyrics ang sinulat ko. hehe. Kalayo naman sagot mo sa tanong ko.

      • twitgurl

        kung akin talaga ang lupa.. at pera ko ang pinambili at kung nakasalut sa batas papayag ako.. pero ang kaibahan eh yng mga cojuanco eh hnd nmn sa kanila yung lupa bkit pinagpipilitan nila? magisip ka nmn kuya.. hnd sa mga cojuanco ka yang lupa na yan bkit kung maka asta sila eh sa kanila at babayran pa sila.. nag iisip kb? halatang TUTA ka ni panot..

      kami nga rito, libog na libog sa kanya.

      yun nga lang, may long time lesbyan lover siya.

      baka masilip ng media, patay na.

By the way, in Western Countries with parliamentary form of  government we call this judicial body THE HIGH COURT OF JUSTICE. We expect speedy reforms in this particular branch of our government.

    This signals the end of the reign of the notorious Hermosisima in influencing Judicial appointments and probably the end also of the 8 Tyrants’ reign of dysfunctional Justice ! I’m very happy for her as she was my first choice among those in shortlist who did not get a vote from the notorious Hermosisima ! That probably explains why she only get 6 votes from JBC, but that single vote is a blessing in disguise as Carpio tops the vote at 7 but missed the boat in turn, I hope he is sport enough to lend a hand to her ! That’s a small fact that most people never learned from the notoriety of Hermosisima who operates under the radar for GoLiar for very long time of over 10 years in the JBC and thus giving us the bad quality of judges and justices !

    I read her different dissenting opinions and she always had a point why she dissents.

    Well at least our CJ goes through the legal and proper process. She will definitely be far better than the the midnight appointed CJ.

    Even now we can look forward to Gloria Arroyo ceasing to feign
    life threatening sickness and illnesses. 

    New CJ Sereno will see to it that justice is much more speedily 
    delivered and done in the numerous very serious cases awaiting
    judgment day for both Gloria and Mike Arroyo. Yes indeed, there’s
    the danger both Mike and Gloria may suddenly succumb to serious
    illness, but this time no longer feigned but for real. Good riddance
    to the two of them.  

    Ditto with the Marcoses. And ditto perhaps even to kicked out 
    ex-CJ Renato Corona and lots of others who became unusually 
    wealthy and overburdened with accusations and allegations of 
    ill gotten wealth while holding key government post and/or political
    office.

    You just cannot dismissed the arrfarrf remnants of the Kissamygloass Club members in this forum.  Unlike the former eskambag who got kicked out of the supreme court recently, the eskambag, whom for the most part,  had worked in the office of GMA, the new lady supreme court chief justice happened to have been appointed by Benigno Cojuangco Aquino III to fill up a vacancy.  She did not work in the presidential office prior to her appointment to the S.C. bench nor was she ever connected to any government offices unlike the eskambag who got thrown out of the S.C.

    To the arrfarrf never happy crowd of the Kissamgloass Club, Benigno Cojuangco Aquino III got elected way back 2010, it is now 2012 and he will be president till 2016 whether or not you like it.  Give it a rest.

Let see if she has the interest of the poor ,without being selective.

    • yesyesyo

      HLI is a closed case. The SC said they will not entertain any motion on the case. Wala na talagang ibang isyu. LOSER!

      • spearheads

        Paano ako magiging loser unggoy? Ikaw nga dyan ang patay na patay kay Carpio maging CJ dahil hero mo si concheata moral-less? Ngyaon feeling winner ka unggoy? Ilang ulit kong sinabi dito na walang tsamba si Carpio. Ang isiningit ko lang ay dark horse si Zamora. Pero noon pang nagpapatalbugan si Henares at De Lima palagi kong post na saling pusa lang yong dalawa para di halatang si serena ang malaking isda sa supreme court. Sinabi ko pa na kahit sinong pipiliin ni PNoy ay magiging beholden sa kanya. Nagpost rin ako na drama lang yong sabi ni PNoy na dissatisfied siya dahil lahat ng binoto ni Musngi ay pasok maliban kay Bautista. Kuha mo na unggoy? Sinong loser ngayon?

      • yesyesyo

         Haba ng litanya mo. nonsense. you really sound a sore LOSER!

  • johndcross1

    A wise choice Mr. President.  A very young and energetic Chief Justice and the first female at that sets a good start.  This is want we want Madame Chief Justice:  Clean-up the judiciary by removing corrupt, intellectually unfit, lazy judges, prosecutors and personels; fill-up vacant judgeship positions; faster resolution of cases; abolish bonuses not allowed or authorized in the budget; build more courtrooms, etc.  This is just some of the few reforms that the Filipino people will be expecting from you.  CONGRATULATIONS TO JUSTICE LOURDES SERENO FOR A WELL-DESERVED PROMOTION! By the Grace of God you will succeed.

    Now that we have decent people in the DOJ, OMBUDSMAN, SC, I hope they start working to start sending crooks to jail.

Also those white collar crooks who have robbed the poor and middle class Filipinos, like that Delfin Lee, or the owners of CAP education plans, etc.

    Lahat ng Pinoy sa boong mundo kasama na lahat ng kamag anakan ko na nakabantay sa unang kasong ilalabas ng SC sa pamumuno ng bagong CJ, na maraming nagdududa dahil sa unang appointed ng bagong Pangulo ng Pinas at sya din ang na appoint na CJ, kung pro Aquino/Cojangco family and associate ba or hindi ang pabor ng decision sa kaso.

    I personally believe the president made an excellent choice. I go for the reasoning presented by Sen. Santiago supporting the selection of Sereno. 

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/DMQAY7DYUDLP25XC3P6QTWRXLE A

  • Cal_Reznick

    Yup…President definitely picked the right choice to make sure the Hacienda Luisita issue benefits him.

    So to be clear Ms. CJ, make sure the Hacienda Luisita issue benefits your boss President. Or else your tenure will be shorter that your predecessors.

    With that out of the way…congrats! All the best!

    • FORTHE GOOD

      The SC already gave a final judgment of the HLI issue. Move on cal. lumang tugtugin na yan.

      • Cal_Reznick

        I’ve seen worse in the PI. Unfortunately, nothing is ever final, good or bad.

      • FORTHE GOOD

         That was the time of CJ corona – the days of flip flopping SC is done.

      • hanna sanchez

        Definitely not an opinion – It’s a FACT.

      • Cal_Reznick

        Ok, a fact that nothing is ever final in the PI.

        This CJ will be deciding everything to benefit the President, good or bad.

      • hanna sanchez

         That’s an opinion, YOUR OPINION.

      • Cal_Reznick

        Not much thought provoking or insightful posts coming from you huh?

        Anyway, if you choose to be stubborn and ignorant to some political realities there is not much i can do.

        I suppose i can entertain you by going back and forth posting “That’s your opinion” – “That’s your opinion” – “That’s your opinion” etc..etc…etc…

        But what good does that do me. If you believe that the new CJ will go against the President then enjoy yourself with that thought. I, however, cannot be that naive.

    • Sarong9146

       In
      April, Sereno was among the justices who voted against having the Department of
      Agrarian Reform pay for Cojuangco-owned Hacienda Luisita based on 1989 rates. The Cojuangcos had been asking for compensation
      based on the current land value, around P1 million per hectare, or around P5
      billion, from the government. Hindi ba obvious!!!!

      • Cal_Reznick

        Maybe…however, please expound if possible.

      • hanna sanchez

        Read the whole transcript of Sereno’s argument para maliwanagan ka. In the supreme court lahat ng mga associate justices’ opinion ay tama. But the decision is based on numbers and not on public opinion especially on unfounded public opinion like yours.

  • drew_casta

    I’m curiously looking forward to what Mareng Winnie would write about this matter. But then, whatever she writes doesn’t matter. 

  • californiaflip

    She may make a good CJ, but don’t get overexcited about an extended Sereno term, she can be impeached for something as minor as plagiarism or her plane can crash. Pag masyadong pinahihirapan ang mga trapo sa Pilipinas itutumba ka. . ..

    • boyod

      tama ka brod, so we have to pray earnestly for Her 

    • hanna sanchez

       Taongbayan bro, hindi trapo. The impeachment became successful because the filipino people supported. Nobody can be impeached without the public support.

      • californiaflip

        Some Trapos were behind the impeachment, nakisawsaw. But I believe Robredo’s plane was sabotaged by adding diesel to the plane fuel, the way Gov Nantes died.

      • hanna sanchez

         Nakisawsaw lang and not behind. Iba yon bro. As to sabotage angle, as to my opinion it’s too far from reality I guess.

  • FORTHE GOOD

    Mabuhay ka CJ Sereno!

    FIRST WOMAN CHIEF JUSTICE

    ANA: “Nu’ng August 15 eh tinanong ko – (Ang ibig sabihin ba ng tumatanda nang paurong eh bumabata ang edad nu’ng matatandang SC justices na kasama sa shortlist?)”

    LISA: “At sagot ka naman sa tanong mo – (Ay, wala kang insight, ‘ga. ‘Yung argumento kasi ni Sr Justice Carpio eh magiging demoralized daw ang Judiciary kapag outsider ang pipiliing CJ ni PNoy. Pero sabi naman ni CDQ eh self-serving ang argumentong ito porke gustong lumaktaw ahead of the line ni Carpio.)”

    CION: “Natupad ang sinabi ko ng 101% – (Eh di, huwag nang magpaatras ng edad. Dapat piliin ni PNoy ang insider na tunay na bata, si Asso Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno, o, ‘di ba?) – Tumpak-na-tumpak ako!!!”

  • Ron, Jr. Larus

    Jusice Sereno is an excellent choice.  She has the idealism of youth, the knowledge of law as academician, a taste of actual law practice, and some experience in the workings of the Supreme Court.  Of course she probably has weaknesses somewhere, like everybody else; but then the mighty sword of Impeachment and the wrath of an aroused citizenry fanned by a vigilant mass media should take care that she does not venture too far from the right path. I am most confident that she will make a good CJ at least for the next five to ten years.

    Of the eight nominees in the JBC shortlist, Supreme Court Associate Justice Ma.

  • silvershade

    Marami pang mga kasong mabibigat laban sa mga Cojuangco, hindi lang ang hacienda Luisita.  And all of them will be won by the Cojuangcos through the intercession of CJ Sereno.  But there are 14 other justices who will surely block every Sereno’s move.  Insulto at sampal sa mukha ni Carpio at ng other justices ang pagkahirang kay Sereno, knowing that she’s only a newcomer at na-bypass silang lahat especially Carpio.  Lintik lang ang walang ganti!

    we have to always pray for her safety till the last day in the Supreme Cpourt

  • kulittwit

    HLI na naman.LOL!! The SC has already made a final judgment on that. You are a certified LOSER silvershade.

    • hanna sanchez

       True. And it won’t be reversed as corona did on FASAP case. Some people think people are the same. Wala na sanang impeachment kung ganoon.

    • PepingCo

      The SC decision that HLI is covered by CARP IS final. Its the compensation decision thats not final. It was Sereno who dissented that HLI be paid with using 2006 pricing and that will amount to billions for PNoy’s KamagAnak Inc. SC decision was to pay HLI less than P200M but its on appeal. If Sereno’s appointment is not connected to HLI’s appeal ( for just compensation in the words of PNoy), then HLI should withdraw their SC appeal.
      The other thing to watch out for is the PET election case of Mar Roxas vs. VP Binay. The SC CJ presides over the PET.
      In the spirit of truth and fairness, Sereno should now inhibit herself in these 2 cases pending in the SC.

    • KapitanBagwis

       pasensya ka na….maraming nagpipilit na mag post ng comment pero hindi alam ang sinasabi

  • $20926843

    Although sereno is an insider but she is the most junior among the Associate Justices having served the SC same years  as her inconsequential autistic benefactor.  With seniority now thrown into the wastebasket expect major turbulence in the SC as these holdover senior justices will not take this sitting down. From hereon, she will have to earn their respect if she wants a smooth working of the SC…..and it will not be easy.

    A lady head of the LTO
    And now….a lady Chief Justice….
    And next maybe, a lady Interior Secretary to replace the good Robredo

    All in the name of women empowerment

    All that’s left for President Noy to complete his women empowerment in government is a first lady…when will it be…no one knows…

    hope there will be checks and balance not “chicks” and balance…

    Whether CJ Sereno would become an image of an independent, reformed and efficiently effective judiciary and not succumb to the whims of the President and his 3 successors in her stint…this is still has to be seen…unless she does the Corona doctrine (what is final is not final and resort to flip-flops), the law will be used against her…

    CJ Sereno, your duty to the Filipinos in the quest for the country’s justice has began. Start clean and end clean…

    • EOJ

      There are about 20 cabinet secretaries. what’s your problem with women in govt service?

  • wawa2172

    I am not playing the KJ side…i have praised the appointment of Sereno as CJ earlier. However what struck me was the JBC result on mental test (or psychological test ) where Sereno got the lowest score among the nominees. I don’t have any question on her IQ because she wont pass the bar if she is a moron but what I am saying is her mental stability to stay with the SC in a long time and 18 years, she is 52 and 70 years of age siya mag re-retire. Well, the I have co-workers who have retired at age of 65 and mukhang hirap na sila sa work. Justice Cuevas or Enrile maybe old and still sharp at their age but somehow their mental abilities does not really demand the pressure that a CJ wil handle. 18 years maybe to long for a term of a CJ dapat ito ay may fixed and shorter term din. In our company, managerial works are often reshuffled to avoid monotony at works and para mag karoon nang bagong sigla sa trabaho. Simply 18 years is too long for reforms, marami sa atin have tendency to relax after being appointed in a position, two to three years, nababagot na sa work, lalo pa sa 18 years. Somehow the perks of being a CJ is enormous and with the vast power she will have a profitable daily life. Still, hindi pa natin alam kung ano ang magagawa ni Sereno. Ok lang ang 18 years sa magaling na CJ but mag titiis tayo if she turns out to be a bad one. Let us just cross our fingers and do the sign of the cross. Marami na ring pumalpak sa appointees ni Noy and Sereno may not really be the BEST choice in his list. Remember na di gusto ni Noy ang short list nang JBC.

    • http://www.facebook.com/lolo.mo.73997 Lolo Mo

      Ang tagal nga 18 years. Many President will come and go. Ang hirap nito, why did JBC accepted a candidate with low psychological test result. Why? Ano ang findings, sadistic, liar, greedy, the Filipino people are at a lost, what particular gauge where those two candidates branded with law rating. 

      The people has the right to know, transparency…….. Ba, baka mamaya, maging werewolf yan, but just the same, there could be a significant finding. Why not reveal it. Psychological exam is very important. It portents what is to come, the tendency and it may even affect the judgement of the case in the SC. Who knows. And 18 years. That’s too long.

      Let’s amind the ruling of SC tenure.

    • KapitanBagwis

       Who is perfect?

      • wawa2172

         No one, Sereno score made her to pass the bar exam, she didn’t get a perfect score. She did not get a perfect score when JBC voted and made a short list for the position, Noy said he dislikes the short list submitted by the JBC but conceded that he must make a choice based on the list. Whose perfect..only GOD is.

      • KapitanBagwis

        Good that you know that only God is perfect. You must also know that it is the president’s prerogative to pick who he believed is best for the position of Chief Justice, taking into consideration all aspects of his choiced’s capacity and capabilty to do the job. It is not for us to criticize the president’s appointee and more so a Chief Justice, when we aren’t even RTC judges.

      • wawa2172

         Did I question the president president prerogative who he believe is the best for the CJ? I did not kapitan, what I merely presented was the two sides of my opinion the first was praising the appointment of Sereno and the other was the negative side citing the the JBC  result of her psychological test where she got the lowest score. Can I not criticize the president, you are wrong kapitan, I am his boss as he said and this is a democratic country unless you are thinking that we are in dictatorship. If the president can criticize the JBC who has the sole authority to provide him with the short list where he made his choice of a CJ, then what would prevent a common man to air his opinion on the appointment he made. Our is a free country kapitan. I do not have to be an RTC judge to give an opinion to an issue, it is my right as enshrined in the the constitution. Did I trash talk on the President appoint on Sereno? My answer is NO. Again I praised the appointment of Sereno  as CJ but cited his pysho result as the lowest among the nominees…I rest my case.

      • KapitanBagwis

        Yes you are right.

      Hindi malayo ang sinabi mo. Alam naman nating si PNoy at si Roxas ang nagpapatakbo sa show kaya buhos ang publicity ni Robredo. Iba na kung close friends ang namatay, gustong gawing bayani. Pwersahan na ang nangyayari.O.K. gawin inyong DILG ang Mrs. Our Chinese government is not particular of the qualification, basta kilala nila at kakosa nilang Chinese, O.K. na sa kanila.

      Ang hirap nito, bulsa ni Juan de la Cruz ang nakataya. Millions and millions of pesos na ang nagastos dahil ke Robredo. Kung hindi ba matigas ang ulo ni Robredo when he insist in flying to NAGA in spite of the Towers disapproving it, sana buhay pa siya.Eh, ang lagay, ni override niya ang Standard Procedure. Alam ng Tower na delikado ang flight due to sunset limitation, insist parin si Robredo. Walang alternate airport ang flight ni Robredo. And Manila Airport is too far.

      For me, it is not right to declare so much attention to a person who caused his death.Kaya lang, ba, si PNoy yata ang nagpapatakbo. Alam naman nating matigas rin ang ulo ni PNoy. During the batch hostage taking, sabi niya “Heads will roll.” Noong ang mga kaibigan niya ang nadale, sila EXGeneral Versoza, si Mayor Lim, si Robredo at si Puno, hindi niya tinupad ang sinabi niya. Mga stubborn talaga.

  • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

    Sereno is not noted to be an activist student and lawyer during her younger days but she has gained some reputation for integrity as a lawyer who doesn’t sell her soul. In fact before the PIATCO case where she was hired as the workhorse of Justice Feliciano (ret), she lived a simple life. That case gave her the financial break where I heard she made at least P20 million, her share from  from Justice Feliciano’s P1 billion lawyer’s fees, as private international lawyer of the Phil govet in the arbitration cases concerning PIATCO case.

    Hope power doesn’t possess her as years unfold, and worst corrupts her. That she should guard… because power is a an overpowering force and dangerous partner in life as Robredo repeatedly told his wife when he was still alive.

    She must remember what the slave always reminds and whispers to the Roman general’s ears – “Respice te, hominem te memento” (“Look behind you, remember you are only a man”).

    Life is fleeting so one must guard that power never possesses him/her. Only a very few indeed can resist power. Marcos, Gloria and almost everybody fell victim to it (I dont know if there was any among the Roman generals did not fall victim to power.) Slowly in fact Noynoy has shown power has entered into his psyche already as he forgets his propaganda lip service declaration kayo ang mga boss ko!

    • pepengkabayo

       Baka sufficient na yong 20million kamong lawyer’s fee.
      Mahirap ng ubusin…at malaki naman ata ang sueldo ng Chief Justice.

      Bakit naman may Latin ka pa at para sa lalaki yon quote, babae si Sereno.

      CheGuevara ka pa naman, CheGuevara quotes:

      Live your life not celebrating victories, but overcoming defeats.
      The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall.
      Much more definitive and much more lasting than all the gold that one can accumulate is the gratitude of a people.

        Bits of history:

        In ancient Athens, women had no legal personhood and were assumed to be part of the oikos headed by the male kyrios.

        According to English Common Law, which developed from the 12th century onward, all property which a wife held at the time of a marriage became a possession of her husband. Eventually English courts forbade a husband’s transferring property without the consent of his wife, but he still retained the right to manage it and to receive the money which it produced. French married women suffered from restrictions on their legal capacity which were removed only in 1965.

        During the 19th century some women began to agitate for the right to vote and participate in government and law making.[54] Other women opposed suffrage like Helen Kendrick Johnson, whose prescient 1897 work Woman and the Republic contains perhaps the best arguments against women’s suffrage of the time.[55]The ideals of women’s suffrage developed alongside that of universal suffrage and today women’s suffrage is considered a right (under the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women).[citation needed] During the 19th century the right to vote was gradually extended in many countries and women started to campaign for their right to vote. In 1893 New Zealand became the first country to give women the right to vote on a national level. Australia gave women the right to vote in 1902.[44] A number of Nordic countries gave women the right to vote in the early 20th century – Finland (1906), Norway (1913), Denmark and Iceland (1915). With the end of the First World War many other countries followed – the Netherlands (1917), Austria, Azerbaijan,[56] Canada, Czechoslovakia, Georgia, Poland,and Sweden (1918), Germany and Luxembourg (1919), and the United States (1920) . Spain gave women the right to vote in 1931, France in 1944, Belgium, Italy, Romania and Yugoslavia in 1946. Switzerland gave women the right to vote in 1971, and Liechtenstein in 1984.[44]

        In Latin America some countries gave women the right to vote in the first half of the 20th century – Ecuador (1929), Brazil (1932), El Salvador (1939), Dominican Republic (1942), Guatemala (1956) and Argentina (1946). In India, under colonial rule, universal suffrage was granted in 1935. Other Asian countries gave women the right to vote in the mid 20th century – Japan (1945), China (1947) and Indonesia (1955). In Africa women generally got the right to vote along with men through universal suffrage – Liberia (1947), Uganda (1958) and Nigeria (1960). In many countries in the Middle East universal suffrage was acquired after the Second World War, although in others, such as Kuwait, suffrage is very limited.[44] On 16 May 2005, the Parliament of Kuwait extended suffrage to women by a 35–23 vote.

  • PepingCo

    Finally, a new CJ. Things to watch out for under CJ Sereno’s early days in office.

    The SC decision that HLI is covered by CARP IS final. Its the compensation decision thats not final. It was Sereno who dissented that HLI be paid with using 2006 pricing and that will amount to billions for PNoy’s KamagAnak Inc. SC decision was to pay HLI less than P200M but its on appeal. If Sereno’s appointment is not connected to HLI’s appeal ( for just compensation in the words of PNoy), then HLI should withdraw their SC appeal.

    The other thing to watch out for is the PET election case of Mar Roxas vs. VP Binay. The SC CJ presides over the PET.

    In the spirit of truth and fairness, Sereno should now inhibit herself in these 2 cases pending in the SC.

    This was my fearless forecast during the impeachment trial. Sereno”s appointment has 2 purposes: 1. To protect Budoy’s idiotic follies. 2. To ensure an 18 year insurance protection to the Aquino-Cojuanco clan’s Hacienda Luisita and their other business and political interests. 

    Sereno got a 4 in the psycho test conducted by the JBC. In college, 4 is an incomplete grade so this means that Sereno is “kulang ang pag-iisip” like her appointer.

    The best description of Sereno’s appointment as Chief Justice was that of former CJ Corona “The appointment of Sereno speaks for itself”.  The inclusion of HLI to agrarian reform is final but the just compensation is what is now the Cojuangco family is after and only Sereno has the guts to protect the interest of the Cojuangco family. Please remember that another appointment for Associate Justice is forthcoming that will increase the voting percentage in favor of the Cojuangco Motion for Reconsideration (MR) regarding just compensation.  Expect a delay in the distribution until after the appointees of GMA in SC are gone when their retirement comes a few years from now. That is the reform agenda Pnoy is after!

    This appointment is also good news to GMA as Morales being a close relative to Carpio will be offended and am sure the case against GMA will not prosper considering that their is no legal basis to file it in court.  Plunder is a case where the respondent benefited from it at least P50 M but the respondent never on record got anything or traces of corruption.

    • joe__bloggs

      De Lima was part of the human shield for then AJ Sereno along with those two ladies from BIR and COA. De Lima was just too engrossed with herself to notice.
      Turned out she was an excellent choice as she was still taking the flak even after she was left out of the list!
      It was always going to be one from the “ranks” and that narrowed the list to those appointees of President Aquino. Sereno was top of this list.

  • Alajero

    ….i don’t know Justice Sereno…the only thing i know about her is…she was appointed by AQUINO….knowing his lazy set of mind…it seems convenient …that he will choose his most recent appointee…more power to the new chief…and may your serve the office very well…

    • $20733759

      “Lazy mind” you say?? Look at it this way. Our brilliant PNoy just figuratively “shot two birds with one stone” !! Why? Because he just appointed the first lady chief justice, one who possess qualities way above the others and who will serve the judiciary in that capacity for the next 18 years, mind you. And, thats just the first stone. The second stone, so to speak, is that PNoy will still appoint her replacement and that is the added bonus to the Filipino people’s quest for a revitalized Supreme Court, get it!!. Cunning, yes. Lazy, Never!

      • Alajero

        …yes…a lazy mind cannot just wake up one day..as brilliant…his choices are short in imagination….it’s more of the same…but, i trust justice sereno…in the same way that i trust xcj corona….what matter most is the independence….we will be watching justice sereno…i hope she does her job very well….

       Correction, there is no Thief Justice in the plantilla of SC only Chief Justice…he he he. Magagalit sa iyo si Sereno niyan she was appointed by Pnoy to replace Corona. And correction, the senate impeachment court did not convict Corona for thief but rather non declaration of asset and liabilites walang sinabing nag nakaw si Corona else nasa kulungan na siya ngayon kasama is Rolito Go sa NBP.

      • john wilst

         Corona did not declare because he will be caught. He just make himself looks idiot so that filipino people will not send him to jail.

      • wawa2172

         he he he…grabe talaga ang ngitngit mo kay Corona huh. I hope you wont mind if I have to make a correction to your  statement. It is not the Filipino people that will send him to jail its the evidences presented in court  and again, he did not steal from government coffer as noted but only the none declaration of his SALN specifically the dollar account. In regular court the evidence will not have any bearing since the dollar account is protected by the bank secrecy law. The law must be amended so that those in the government must be liable for none disclosure of dollar account. The truth of the matter is our lawmakers will not allow the amendment because it will place them on difficult situation.Marami silang sekrito at sila ang magigisa sa sariling mantika. Hind nga yata naipakita ang dollar account ni Corona when he allowed the impeachment court of do it to the dismay of Sen. Chiz. It could have been  a precedent for others to divulge their account. So mind you, pag katapos ma convict si Corona, was there a bill pass in congress to amend the bank secrecy law? May na publish ba na SALN? Naparusahan ba ang nga dala ng tismis at fake na evidences sa impeachment court? History will be against us, we impeached somebody, it cost a lot of time and money for the government but no laws are pass para di na maulit ito.

  • http://www.yahoo.com JOSE RIZAL

    Basing on her “gossipy & tabloid-type” dissenting opinion, she will do anything & everything (just like De Lima & Omb. Carpio-Morales) as an avenging “angel” for the vindictiveness & glory of His Medicority, no more no less.
    But could she make her way for the votes of those wise, brillant & mature Justices…ah, there’s a way out on it…it’s the SC’s budget & allotment to the Justices…just like what Abad is doing on the CDF/Pork barrel…
    Hahahaha!  Man or woman CJ…it doesn’t matter.  Where “JUDICIAL REFORMS” can be defined, nowadays, as bending the substance of the law just to be a “CHEEKY CJ” to His Mediocrity.
    Hahahaha! Objectivism and not political patronage…  

    • jian_sadako

       At least she was appointed by the President who has a legitimate mandate from the People. Rather than appointed to the position by a person whose presidency is questionable? But in the end, only time can tell as what you are saying are mere speculation. She has anyway 18 years of service ahead well beyond Pnoy.

      In any case, you’ll have your chance every election to have your voice be heard. And hopefully by then aside from criticizing, you also provide solutions and suggestions.

    By opting to be continuously delusional, your mind and heart will also be filled with innuendos and baseless allegations, you will have no satisfaction or peace of mind.
     
    Hacienda Luisita is a closed page of the history.
     
    If you even try to observe what Gloria did against President Cory, here they are:
     
    1.  Presidential pardon on the assasins who conspired with each other to kill the late Sen Aquino.

    2. Ordering the recall of the presidential security detail of Pres Cory Aquino thus exposing Pres Cory Aquino for assassination too.

    3. Ordering the erstwhile Chief Justice Corona to hasten the HLI decision and making sure that the computation of compensation to the Cojuangcos is vlaued years before the decision on land reform is promulgated. The SC decision happened in 2011 but according to Corona the valuation should be the 1989. That year when Pres Cory pushed for the estate’s land reform and the farmers in the Hacienda voted for stocks option. You can only assume that such heavy-handed decision could only happen during marcos dictatorship. Of course gloria arooyo was a small girl dictator too.

    Gloria Arroyo was the president of the country for 9.5 years and yet she did not push for the land reform decision on Arroyo land holdings in Negros. As of the last news bit from Negros Oriental, out of more than 100 farmers, there will be only 14 or so farmers who will be the beneficiaries in the land reform. The Arroyos manipulated the poor sugar cane workers so much that every time you come across this case, it will leave a bad taste in the mouth.

    • wawa2172

      Hmm…please make the record straight on land valuation on item 3. It was not Corona who made the decision to pegged it to 1989 valuation but the en banc of justices. A case was filed on the HLI and it was clear that the Cojuangco’s cheated on the farmers who are  the true owners of the hacienda in the beginning. The Central Bank and GSIS loans in 1950’s was for the farmers to acquire the vast lands which Cojuangcos deprived them. As far as Arroyo’s land in Negros is concern, cases must be filed in court to have it subjected to CARP. Now that Sereno is the CJ, you think she can solely declare that the Arroyo land should be distributed to the farmers as like in the HLI? The SC decision is collegial not dictatorial.

      On item 1, it is a presidential prerogative to give presidential pardon and so The Pandak handed it to the killer of the late Sen Aquino on humanitarian ground. If God can forgive Paul who had killed hundreds of believers then how much more The Pandak who is vested with power to give pardon to criminals. You did not mention that the killers were already old having served their terms at NBP for years and are sickly some of them already died while in prison. You did not also mentioned that the killers were soldiers just following orders from the masterminds who are yet to be identified and sentence in court. Are you familiar with Dacer-Corbito case, its similar, the CA and the president absolved Ping on the issue.

      On item 2, its a political decision, away babae at sila lang ang may alam. They were best of friend at the start, the president in power giving preference to the wills of the former president until nag ka pikonan. Cory stand by The Pandak on EDSA II then later turn her back against her and even ask forgiveness to convicted plunderer ERAP for helping to kick him out. Cory, the Pandak and ERAP are former presidents who contributed to our miseries right now.
