If it is not Midas Marquez who ordered a judicial holiday, who did it then? The world wonders!
All is not well with out judicial branch, one of the three co-equal branches of government.
We all knew that court employees trooped to the Supreme Court in defence of and display of sympathy to the Honorable Chief Justice Renato Corona. Someone in the SC has issued some texts hinting of a court holiday (be in the office but do no work) and strangely no one is going forward to admit that such an order was given out (no one did it realy!).
The SC spokesman Midas Marquez denied on television that he issued a court holiday, but he cannot deny that he has sent text messages to higher local court officials. YOu cant charge him with perjury as he was telling the TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH.
So it is possible that in the confusion of the interpretation of the text messages, people of the courts system simply took the rest of the day off, not only to show solidarity for the embattled CJ but also took an opportunity as one can say to visit the malls.
The world should not wonder! Only and only in the Philippines. Who cares who ordered a judicial holiday?? :)
