Instead of facing complainants, Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno sent a battery of lawyers to answer the impeachment charges hurled against her before the House Committee on Justice. Chairman Reynaldo Umali (2nd District, Oriental Mindoro) and Majority Floor Leader Rep. Rodolfo Fariñas (1st District, Ilocos Norte) led fellow legislators in probing Atty. Lorenzo Gadon in order for him to substantiate allegations against the Chief Justice. Gadon accused Sereno of committing 27 acts amounting to impeachable offenses on four grounds, specifically culpable violations of the Constitution (11 acts), corruption (3 acts), other high crimes (4 acts) and betrayal of public trust (9 acts). The impeachment complaint was initially endorsed by 25 House Members. / FG/PC
