IBP lauds court ruling in Trillanes case
The Integrated Bar of the Philippines on Tuesday lauded the Makati regional trial court in junking the government’s motion for the issuance of an arrest warrant against opposition Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV.
“We salute the judge of Branch 148 of the Makati RTC with his decision. Ang IBP ay nagpapasalamat na sa wakas nadesiyunan na ang isyung ito,” IBP Executive Vice President Domingo Cayosa said.
“What is good is that rule of law ang masunod hindi ‘yung salita o ngawngaw ng pulitiko o ‘yung gusto ng nasa poder, kung ano ‘yung proseso na nakasaad sa Saligang Batas,” he added.
Cayosa expressed hope that with the judge’s decision, other courts in the country would also expedite their rulings on the various cases being tried in their sala.
“Sana nga ganito kabilis ang libo- libo pang kaso na naghihintay ng desisyon at katarungan,” he added.
