Erin Tañada lauds Makati RTC judge for ‘defending’ law
Former Quezon 4th District Representative Erin Tañada lauded Makati Regional Trial Court Judge Andres Soriano for “bravely defending the law.”
Soriano on October 22 junked the Deparment of Justice’s petition for an arrest warrant and a hold departure order against Senator Antonio Trillanes.
“It could not have been easy to decide the way he did in Senator Trillanes’ case,” Tañada said.
He said Soriano should be emulated.
“We should have more of this: more fortitude, greater strength, and true grit. These are what we need in times of rampant political reprisals,” Tañada said.
If he had ruled otherwise, too many of the most sacred doctrines underpinning our legal system will be thrown into shadow–particularly the principle of Immutability of Final Judgments,” he added.
