Meanwhile, the Free Legal Assistance Group in Central Visayas (FLAG-7) issued a statement against the decision of the High Court to oust Sereno.

“The integrated bar of the Philippines, various lawyers’ groups, all decent Filipinos, and noted constitutionalists led by supreme court retire justice Vicente Mendoza, have branded the decision as illegal and unconstitutional,” Read the official statement from the FLAG-7 issued on May 14.
