The “cry of the people” has been heard in the higher ups. Now, the Supreme Court is being scrutinized by some well-known politicians with regard to the numerous Flip-Flopping of Cases. I thought this will never reach the Senate but alas! watchful eyes and ears are now focused on these cases.

Before we spill the beans on this new update, here are the other articles you might want to read first, that is, if you have no idea what I’m talking about here:

Flip Flopping in the Supreme Court – When Will It End?

Okay, let’s move on..

As I have mentioned above, some Senators are already on the tail of the highest court. Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago who is a lawyer and has been a judge,said that

You file two documents. First, a motion pleading with the Court to allow for a second motion for reconsideration, then you file your second motion for reconsideration. My question is, was there an order from the Supreme Court allowing this second motion for reconsideration?
The Supreme Court only has to look into its own internal rules and see if these three requirements have been complied (with)

She also fears that the people will turn their backs on the judicial system and the courts if its credibility becomes tarnished. That is one scary future ahead of us and I can’t fathom what will become of our country as well as the future of our children.

Another Senator, a former justice secretary, revealed that this is not the first time it happened. Apparently,

The SC ruled against the 16 towns in 2010, and then upheld their cityhood early this year.

Well, I haven’t heard about the latter but these issues are keeping me awake sometimes. I believe in the judiciary system and that crime and any serious breaking of the public law must be apprehended.

I’m just wondering, if these has been an ongoing issue with the highest court, can’t the government or the President do something about it?
