The Philippine Constitution Association, through the initiative of Manuel (Lolong) M. Lazaro and Ferdinand Martin G. Romualdez, chairman and president, respectively, entreats the Supreme Court to consider the letter of the three (3) Court of Appeals (CA) Justices reporting the unexpected unorthodox reaction of the House of Representatives on the Writ of Habeas Corpus issued as an administrative matter.
This is the judicial process to enable the Supreme Court to resolve the clashing postures in order to avert a constitutional crisis, Philconsa said. The SC as the final arbiter of constitutional questions/legal controversies shall interpret and allocate the jurisdictional boundaries of the rights and obligations of the parties involved when a writ of habeas corpus is issued.
Philconsa is confident the House of Representatives shall honor and implement whatever Resolution/Decision the Supreme Court may render. In the remote event the House still refuses to honor and execute the Resolution/Decision of the Supreme Court in the administrative matter, the President shall undoubtedly execute or implement the decision of the Supreme Court, as mandated by his oath of office to preserve and defend the Constitution and execute its laws.
