In an interview, Sen. Lacson answers questions related to Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno’s ‘wellness leave’ amid a possible impeachment trial.
Quotes from the interview…
On CJ Sereno’s leave:
“If it’s a wellness leave, all associate justices, much more ang CJ, entitled talaga sa wellness leave. Regular yan eh. So why make an issue out of this?”
“(E)ntitled sila. Kung wellness or regular leave, karapatan naman niya. Very tedious process din at kailangan paghandaan ang depensa sa Senado. Di pwedeng i-assume na madali lang ang pagdadaanan niya rito.”
On Sereno going on leave to prepare for impeachment trial defense:
“It could also do her well kasi para mag-prepare siya, ang defense team niya. Almost inevitable kasi ma-transmit ang impeachment complaint sa Senate. At makakabuti talaga na mag-prepare siya ng defense niya sa Senado.”
On Senate preparations for possible impeachment trial:
“We are prepared. Siyempre constitutional duty namin yan na mag-convert into an impeachment court. So ready kami roon.”
