Sereno should not be dragged into PIATCO case, her spokesman says

/ 07:25 PM June 08, 2018

Former Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno should not be dragged in the case involving the Philippine International Air Terminals Company (PIATCO) which she had previously represented, one of her spokesmen said on Friday.

Atty. Jojo Lacanilao said in a text message, “CJ Sereno is not a party to the case, which is between the government and PIATCO.”

Lacanilao issued the statement following the Court of Appeals’ recent ruling that declared as illegal the compensation received by the government’s legal team which included Sereno.

He said Sereno received the payment for her legal services “in good faith.”

“She was hired by government as lawyer and she accepted the engagement in good faith. She was one of the lawyers that helped the government win the case against PIATCO,” he added.  /vvp
