The National Union of People’s Lawyers issued this statement today on the Supreme Court’s DAP ruling:
4 February 2015
Court ruling on DAP:
Message is loud and clear: Pnoy & Abad messed up
The Supreme Court latest unanimous DAP ruling – even if more legally nuanced & precise – essentially and basically affirms the patent unconstitutionality of the acts of President BS Aquino thru DBM Sec Abad.
Contrary to another contorted and self-serving reading by the Palace, the Decision strengthened calls and moves for accountability and liability for such gross and wholesale juggling of public funds into one huge presidential kitty.
It implicitly validated the recourse to impeachment proceedings that were already propitious at the first instance it reared its ugly head.
The message is loud and clear except to those who remain incurably narcissist and self-righteous they could do no wrong.#
