Supreme Court regains our trust!?

We are glad that Pres. Noy's chosen one for the Supreme Court has proven that the SC is an indpendent body that is NOT beholden to anyone.Just now, the Supreme Court has issued a TRO (temporary restraining order) for the implementation of the Cybercrime Prevention Law after accepting 15 petitions for its decision on the constitutionality of the law after the law was passed by the Senate/Congress and put into law by President Nonoy Aquino last September 12, 2012.

Noy should not get mad over this virtual slap on his palms, nor think of retaliation against the SC. By the constitution, the SC is the mandated LONE supreme power to determine the constitutionality of any acts, ordinances or laws. Noy should be happy that he was not allowed to sink deeper into the quagmire of foolishness or an accomplice party to some sleight of hand int the Senate proceedings, especially the surreptitious entry of Libel provisions in the RA 10175.

The ambiguous and dangerous law must now be resubmitted to both Congress and Senate.
and hopefully any provisions which infringe on the inalienable rights and civil liberties, or are not in consonance with constitution or current International legal oblications must not even see the light of day!

We hope that the SC will be consistent in its decisions, and not wait too long for anger of the people to boil over!
