SC stands by Caguioa’s impartiality, calls Bongbong Marcos’ accusations ’empty’

Sep 4, 2018 @ 14:17

The Supreme Court (SC), sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), stood by Associate Justice Benjamin Caguioa’s impartiality.

The SC, in its ruling junking former senator Bongbong Marcos’ motion for inhibition against Caguioa, said “the mere imputation of bias or partiality is not enough ground for inhibition.”

Marcos said Caguioa was biased in favor of Vice President Leni Robredo in his electoral protest against her.

“Protestant’s empty allegations regarding Justice Caguioa’s fraternal relations with President Aquino are only just that – empty,” the PET said.

“Weighed against protestant’s imagined misgivings, the foregoing shows that Justice Caguioa’s conduct of the matters involved in this protest has been nothing but impartial,” the PET added.
