Philstar.com reports that Atty. Jose Midas Marquez "rejected yesterday, June 5, calls for him to resign as court administrator of the Supreme Court (SC) following the removal of Renato Corona as chief justice." For the record Marquez had already relinquished his duties as SC spokesperson.

 

Aside from critics calling for his resignation, Marquez is also facing another possible obstacle. The Philstar.com report noted: "Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said Marquez should be held to account for alleged anomalies in the $21-million loan the World Bank (WB) granted to the judiciary."

 

According to the report, Lacierda also pointed out that "Marquez can be removed if all SC justices decide to oust him." The report quoted Lacierda, who said, "There is a Presidential Decree 828 where (Marquez) can be removed for just cause." Lacierda, however, emphasized that "it’s up to the SC" to decide Marquez’s fate.
