In compliance with the Court of Appeals resolution, the Santo Niño Parochial School issued a certificate for Krisel Mallari on Thursday. But whether it was to certify her “good moral character” was another issue.

“We will not defy the court in so far as the order of issuing a certificate of good moral character but the court cannot dictate what we are going to state in that certificate,” the school’s lawyer Maritonie Renee Resureccion told the Philippine Daily Inquirer.


The school has not been officially notified of the contempt case filed by the Mallaris but the lawyer said they welcomed it as an opportunity for their side to be heard.

“We will issue the certificate without prejudice to our filing of a motion for reconsideration,” Resurreccion said, adding that they were also considering filing a petition for certiorari in the Supreme Court.
