MANILA, Philippines — The House justice committee on Wednesday dismissed the second impeachment complaint filed against Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno after it was found insufficient in form.


Only five solons found the second complaint sufficient, while 28 voted against it due to “flawed” verification.  


Ilocos Norte Rep. Rodolfo Fariñas said the impeachment complaint against Sereno filed by Dante Jimenez of the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption and Eligio Mallari of the Vanguard of the Philippine Constitution was not properly notarized.


The same committee had earlier deemed the first complaint filed by lawyer Larry Gadon sufficient in form and substance. Thirty panel members agreed with COOP-NATCO party-list Rep. Anthony Bravo to declare the validity of lawyer Gadon’s complaint, while only four lawmakers voted against it.

Sereno's spokesperson Carlo Cruz in a televised interview said their camp is “happy that the VACC complaint has been dismissed, but we are disturbed that Gadon complaint has been deemed sufficient.”

The justice committee, after hearing and by a majority vote of all its members, shall submit a resolution within 60 days. The resolution will then be calendared for consideration by the House within 10 session days.


A vote of at least one-third of all House members is necessary either to affirm a favorable resolution with the articles of impeachment of the committee or override its contrary resolution. This translates to at least 98 members of the House given there are 292 congressmen at present.


The Senate has the sole power to try and decide all cases of impeachment.
