The Supreme Court (SC) on February 13 issued a resolution directing former senator Bongbong Marcos and Vice President Leni Robredo to stop commenting on the Ilocos Norte politiko’s ongoing electoral protest.
The SC, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), invoked the sub judice rule, which prohibits parties from commenting on ongoing judicial proceedings.
“Further, considering that the revision process is about to commence, the Tribunal directs both protestant and protestee to observe the sub judice rule,” the PET said.
The SC’s ruling came a week after the Marcos and Robredo camps squabbled over the delay in the electoral protest.
Marcos has repeatedly accused the SC of “unfair treatment.”
