CJ Sereno tells judges: Do your job. Zone out of politics

Oct 12, 2017 @ 17:25

Supreme Court (SC) Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno dissuaded magistrates nationwide from protesting against the impeachment complaint she is facing.

“I did not come here to, as some would advise, rally the troops and ask you to wear armbands or hold placards for me,” Sereno said during the annual convention of Philippine Trial Judges League Inc.

“I know that, ultimately, such political maneuverings can only erode our branch of government in the long-term, however gratifying it may be at the moment. I have no interest in feeding my ego,” she said.

Instead, the Chief Justice urged judges to focus on their work as dispenser of truth and justice.

“Remain steadfast in the conduct of your duties; zone out of politics, and decide on your cases with openness, sobriety, and fairness,” she stated.

Sereno explained this is the “greatest demonstration of support” they can give her.
