Associate Justice of the Supreme Court (SC) Teresita Leonardo-de Castro today stood as one of the witnesses as the House committee on justice continued its hearing to determine whether there is probable cause in the impeachment complaint filed by Atty. Lorenzo Gadon against Supreme Court Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno. House Majority Leader Rep. Rodolfo Fariñas commented on the rare occurrence to have a magistrate appear as witness in such deliberations, calling de Castro's attendance and agreement to testify as "unprecedented." SC Court Administrator Midas Marquez also appeared today as a witness, answering questions from the justice committee members. / CMBE / GE
