Supreme Court Associate Justice Andres Reyes Jr. said the ouster of former Chief Justices Renato Corona and Maria Lourdes Sereno was an eye-opener for the judiciary.

During the search for Chief Justice with the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) on Thursday, Reyes said: “It’s a wake-up call for us to be always on our toes, and to always be adherent to our Constitution.”

Reyes was appointed by President Rodrigo Duterte to the SC in July 2017.

Reyes, one of the youngest members of the High Court, was asked how he would work with the other members of the SC who were more senior than him.

He said that he worked with some of the SC justices when he was the presiding justice of the Court of Appeals (CA).

He also assured that if he becomes the Chief Justice, he would have to consult with them as a collegial body, just like what they do in an en banc session.

“The Supreme Court is the bastion of democracy and the Supreme Court will follow what is dictated in the Constitution,” he said.

Asked on the ouster of former Chief Justices Renato Corona and Maria Lourdes Sereno, Reyes said “

He penned a ruling declaring as unconstitutional then justice secretary Leila de Lima’s Department Order No. 41, which authorizes the Secretary of Justice to issue Hold Departure Orders, Watch List Orders, or Allow Departure Orders.
