GMA wants to appoint next Sandiganbayan chief

Posted by akosistella on April 6, 2010


MANILA, Philippines – President Arroyo is poised to make another controversial appointment, this time to replace Sandiganbayan Presiding Justice Norberto Geraldez, who died barely a month after heading the court under which administration foes want her tried for corruption after the end of her presidency.

Malacañang said it is possible for the President to appoint a new Sandiganbayan presiding justice after the death of Geraldez last Sunday from pancreatic cancer complications. He was 60.

The President, under the Constitution, is barred from appointing officials 60 days before the elections – or beginning March 10 – and until the end of her term on June 30.
