Erin Tañada: There is ‘forever’ in law

Oct 25, 2018 @ 15:43

Former Quezon 4th District Representative Erin Tañada said he believes in “forever.”

The Quezon politiko said there is “forever” in law.

Tañada was referring to the principle of Immutability of Final Judgments cited by Makati Regional Trial Court Judge Andres Soriano in his decision to junk the Department of Justice’s petition to issue an arrest warrant against Senator Antonio Trillanes.

“This principle says that there IS such a thing as ‘forever’–in law. And in final judgments. That’s as it should be!” he said

“If we keep resurrecting issues that have already been decided, we will have no end to cases. Judges’ decisions would mean nothing,” Tañada added.
