Chill lang kahit may impeachment threat: Sereno says ‘truth is our bedrock’
Supreme Court (SC) Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno assured she remains “chill” despite the impeachment complaint against her.
“To tell you the truth, I do not feel as embattled as the news stories may portray me to be,” she said.
“As one of my younger staff remarked, ‘Ang chill ni CJ, bagay ang pangalan — Sereno, as in serene… Kalmado’,” Sereno recounted.
The Chief Justice explained she remains chill “because I know that the truth is on my side.”
“And in a time of constant spin, when narratives are coopted to serve the personal agenda of a few, the truth is our bedrock,” she said.
“Alam kong hindi ako nagsinungaling, hindi ako nandaya, hindi ako nanlamang ng kapwa, at ginawa ko nang tama ang trabaho ko bilang Punong Mahistrado,” Sereno pointed out.
“I have enough faith in the truth to sleep soundly at night; I have enough faith in our people, and in our democratic systems, to know that narratives built on lies will eventually crumble,” she assured.
