Rule of karma in SC
Let’s face it, people. Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno just got a dose of her own medicine.
When then Solicitor General Francis Jardeleza was being vetted as an applicant for a Supreme Court vacancy, Sereno, as concurrent chair of the Judicial and Bar Council, questioned his qualifications and accused him of being a traitor. In other words, she really hated him that much.
Despite the obvious necessity for her to inhibit herself as the accuser, she did no such thing. She participated with alacrity in all JBC deliberations regarding Jardeleza’s fitness, and gleefully voted to exclude him from the short list.
And now she cries foul that her colleagues who hate her
are showing the same attitude and have voted to kick her out of the Supreme Court? As the saying goes, what goes around, comes around.
Pag-umpugin na lang kaya natin ang mga ulo ng mga justices na ito (Let’s knock these justices’ heads together) and be done with their childish play already!
