Faeldon asks SC yet again to nullify Senate arrest order
Former Bureau of Customs (BOC) Commissioner Nicanor Faeldon has again urged the Supreme Court (SC) to immediately act on his petition to nullify the arrest order issued by the Senate against him.
The former BOC Chief has been transferred to the Pasay City Jail on Tuesday morning following an argument with the senators during the resumption of the hearing on the P6.4-billion shabu shipment.
“If there is still any lingering doubt in the minds of the Honorable Justices of this Court, that the provisional reliefs prayed for by the Petitioner are absolutely necessary under the premises, then Respondent Sen. [Richard] Gordon’s latest public display of bullying, pomposity and utter abuse of power, should be more than enough,” Faeldon said in his very urgent motion to resolve, which was submitted Tuesday morning.
However, he failed to secure immediate relief from the SC as it was not included in the agenda during its regular weekly en banc (full court) session.
The newly appointed deputy administrator for operations of the Office of Civil Defense (OCD) on Monday asked the Supreme Court to nullify the order of arrest and detention issued by the Senate last Sept. 7, 2017. /jpv
