Deja vu: SC justices’ decision a throwback to 1973?

Sharing is caring!

In light of the decision of the Supreme Court justice to oust Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno from her post by voting for the quo warranto plea against her, many have expressed concern that this will have a huge blow to democracy.

Columnist Manuel L. Quezon III compared the current roster of justices to the justices who refused to stood up against dictatorship in 1973.

“The Supreme Court of January, 1973 is no longer alone as the most shameful court in our history; the Supreme Court of May, 2018 joins it in infamy, and exceeds it,” he tweeted.

“Yeah and like that 1973 SC, the people will just watch,” Twitter page Editors of Manila replied.

Will history repeat itself?
