THE SUPREME Court (SC) has reprimanded ousted chief justice Maria Lourdes P.A. Sereno for her previous remarks against her peers and for violating the sub judice rule when she publicly discussed her ouster petition. The high court’s spokesperson, Theodore O. Te, told reporters that the SC decided in an en banc session on Tuesday to give Ms. Sereno “a stern warning that a repetition of the same acts will merit a heavier penalty.” Sought for comment, Ms. Sereno’s spokesperson, lawyer Anacleto “Jojo” A. Lacanilao III, told BusinessWorld in a text message, “We have not received the copy of the resolution. (Ms. Sereno) is reserving her comments until she sees the resolution.” — Dane Angelo M. Enerio
