ITO ang panawagan ng Filipino League of Advocates for Good Governance-Maharlika (FLAG-Maharlika) ukol sa pagiging chairperson ni Supreme Court Associate Justice Marvic Leonen ng 2020-21 Bar Examinations.
Ito ang kabuuang press statement ng nasabing organisasyon:
We appeal to Supreme Court Justice Marvic Leonen’s good sense to spare thousands who are aspiring to be lawyers by voluntary giving-up his position as 2020 /21 Bar Examinations Chairperson, since he cannot be fit mentally and physically to handle these all-too important examinations.
This call comes amidst the prospect of Associate Justice Leonen’s very busy schedule, especially since he will be preoccupied with the necessary preparations for his defenses at the House committee hearings.
It will be unfair to the examinees, their families and all stakeholders if he will not be able to fully devote his time, energy and focus for the coming bar exams.
We hope Associate Justice Leonen will heed this appeal as he needs all the time in the world today more than ever to prepare to answer the verified impeachment complaint filed against him in the House of Representatives, and to clear his desk of ageing cases in the Supreme Court as well as the unresolved cases in the House of Representatives Electoral Tribunal where he sits as its chairman.
May Associate Justice Leonen see the wisdom in resigning as 2020 /21 Bar Examinations Chairperson for good.
