Interrupted Salutatorian Krisel Mallari Sues School
Santo Nino Parochial School is interrupting her future this time.
(SPOT.ph) The battle continues for Krisel Mallari and Santo Niño Parochial School, still involving documents, but this time, the stakes are a little higher. Mallari's petition has moved from the lower court to the Court of Appeals, with the former ruling in favor of the school withholding her certificate of good moral character. Mallari must submit the document to the University of Santo Tomas to complete her enrollment.
The Quezon City court had rendered her petition moot on the grounds that the Department of Education had already ordered the school to issue the document on May 18. However, Santo Niño Parochial School refused to release the certificate of good moral character despite the order, saying "it's not required by law."
