From the Presidential Spokesperson – On CJ Sereno’s wellness leave

The decision of Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno to file a wellness leave is a personal matter.

We are confident that there would be no interruption on the day-to-day operations of the High Court and services would continue unhampered.

As the Chief Justice takes her wellness leave, we hope she would take this as an opportunity to reflect on her time and legacy at the Supreme Court and to consider what would be best for the institution which she heads as top magistrate.
