Dear Judge Soriano,
Isang maikling mensahe mula kay Atty. Mel Sta. Maria.
JUDGE ANDRES SORIANO of RTC Branch 148 Makati is in a very special position. I cannot recall any future decision of a court lower than the Supreme Court to be so much anticipated with all holding their breath. I hope he does it right. The only correct route is to free Senator Trillanes from the wrong revocation of his amnesty. HOW GREAT it is for a lower court to reverse the actions of the mighty Presidency, rule that the latter gravely abused discretion,and give life to the axiom: LET JUSTICE BE DONE THOUGH THE HEAVENS FALL “.
This will be check-and-balance in its full operation pursuant to the letter and spirit of the Constitution. And if Judge Soriano does so, a “lowly” court, not the Supreme Court, may be the one to again resurrect the failing perception of judicial independence among the citizenry.
Let us all pray for Judge Andres Soriano.
Ang dami po naming nagdadasal for you.
Umaasa Na Ang Tama Ang Mananaig,
