Chief Justice Sereno appears to be taking the impeachment case against her in stride even as critics have urged her to resign than be subject to the rigors of a trial.

In an interview with Karen Davila on ANC’s “Headstart” Monday (November 20), Sereno said “it is not that difficult” to for her to deal with the impeachment case because her conscience is clear.

“It is not very diffuclt for me in a sense I just have to keep on telling the truth. Actually, those who are opposing me, they are the ones who have a very complicated life now,” she said.

“Mahirap yatang magsinungaling na kaya nilang patunayan. That would be extremely difficult,” Sereno added.

The Chief Justice said she does not know how the complainant in her impeachment case, abogado Larry Gadon, can claim to have personal knowledge of the allegations against her when she has never met him.

“On many counts, thosse points are actually perjurious. I don’t know him at all,” she said.

Gadon has accused Sereno of committing culpable violations of the Constitution and betrayal of public trust for allegedly failing to declare her multimillion-peso earnings as an abogado in an arbitration case and going on expensive trips, among others.
