SC magistrate denies being source of info in complaint vs Sereno
Supreme Court Associate Justice Teresita Leonardo De Castro denied releasing any information, report or court-related documents to a newspaper reporter.
“I have never released to Jomar Canlas any information, report, or document regarding the work of the Court,” Justice De Castro said in a statement.
The House Committee on Justice wants to summon De Castro, as well as Manila Times reporter Canlas to substantiate allegations of impeachment complainant Atty. Larry Gadon that Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno falsified court documents in 2013. /jpv
