MALAYBALAY CITY (MindaNews/23 June) – The Supreme Court dismissed the petition which sought to declare as unconstitutional the Bangsamoro Basic Law.

According to www.abs-cbnnews.com in a report posted Tuesday afternoon, SC Public Information Office chief Atty. Theodore Te said the petition filed by Rolando Rojo Mijares was dismissed “for being premature.”

Congress will restart deliberations on the BBL when it resumes sessions next month.

At the same time, the SC ordered the consolidation of separate petitions against the Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro and Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro filed by the Philippine Constitution Association (Philconsa) and former Negros Oriental Representative Jacinto Paras.

The high court also ordered the respondents in both petitions to submit their respective comments to the petitions and prayer for temporary restraining order (TRO) within a period of 10 days, the ABS-CBN report said.

The Philconsa petition named as respondents SC Associate Justice Marvic Leonen, former chairman of the government panel, who negotiated and executed the FAB; Miriam Coronel Ferrer, present chairman of the government panel, who negotiated and executed the CAB; the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, represented by Mohagher Igbal; Budget Secretary Florencio Abad; and the Commission on Audit.

Paras’ petition named as respondents in Paras’ petition are Ferrer, Senen Bacani, Yasmin Busran-Lao, Mehil Sadain, and Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process Teresita Deles.

Te said Leonen has voluntarily inhibited from these petitions and “any future cases involving the Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro, the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro, and the Bangsamoro Basic Law”. (MindaNews)

  1. Lawyer Oliver Lozano today expressed
    confidence that the Supreme Court will
    sustain the Petition to nullify the
    Framework Agreement to establish a Bangsa Moro Republic. The petition was filed
    on Dec. 13, 2012 by Atty. Ely Pamatong
    assisted by Atty. Lozano on the
    ground that the agreement is unconstitutional for lack of adequate public consultation
    as provided by the constitution.

    Lozano said that pending debate on
    the BBL, the common demand for social justice thru massive economic development
    should be promptly implemented as enunciated by Sen. Bongbong Marcos.

    He said that without social justice
    peace in Mindanao will remain elusive and illusive. You may have mountains of BBL but have also
    mounting victims of social injustice, you cannot end the Mindanao conflict. July 8,
