SJ Associate Justice Mariano Castillo May also Face Impeachment Charge

A Supreme Court associate justice may soon face the Senate Impeachment Court after the House Committee on Justice declared Tuesday the ouster complaint lodged against Mariano del Castillo as having sufficient grounds.

There were debates on whether or not the House panel has jurisdiction over the impeachment charge following accusations of plagiarism and the committee has voted in favor of impeaching del Castillo.

The said SC Justice has been accused of betraying public trust after supposedly plagiarizing a ruling that concerns comfort women.
