MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Leni Robredo flunked her first try at the bar exams. Now she’s at risk of being disbarred.
The Judicial Bar Council (JBC) is seeking to disbar the Vice President for violation of her lawyer’s oath.
”By continuing to go against the decision of the duly-constituted Supreme Court in ousting Maria Lourdes Sereno from her post as Chief Justice, Atty. Robredo is all but going against her oath to abide by the law. She therefore has no business being in the law profession” a spokesperson for JBC told The Adobo Chronicles.
The High Court recently affirmed its 8-6 decision ousting Sereno with a similar 8-6 vote on the latter’s Motion for Reconsideration.
JBC added that Robredo’s actions is tantamount to contempt of court.
