SS would not take these supposed assurances hook, line and sinker. He’d rather wait for the guarantees of our very own Cong. Celso L. Lobregat, who to SS, has the mastery of the proposed Bangsamoo Basic Law. We say this in reaction to declarations Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque made here over the weekend, that Zamboanga city is not included in the territory for the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law.

Roque asserted, Zamboangueños must not be afraid because if Zamboanga will be included in the Bangsa Moro entity, then Davao will most likely be included because Davao is near Maguindanao which is the seat of power of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.

Zamboanga city though near Basilan and Sulu is not considered contiguous, Roque added.

In spite though of SS’s doubts, expression of hopes that Roque is correct, is asserted just the same.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

On other concerns, Roque also declared, ”Laos na ang mga NPA(NPA’s are a spent force,) and they are already out of tune,”

Roque said that Communist China from which the CPP-NPA derived their ideology, and which Pres. Duterte says they have stopped manifesting, has now taken a new approach after growing into one of the most industrialized countries in the world.

“Kaya sa mga NPA, hellowww why are you still fighting the government,” Roque teased.

Roque on the sides threw a snipe at former Pres. Benigno Aquino,II, with a mockery,  “Itong gobyerno ni President Duterte ay hindi Noynoy o atras abante,” (back and front” stepping) opning Noy Noy Aquino is lacking in competence and decisiveness.

Roque, having so claimed earlier, is  indeed proving to be a stinging bee.

Professing that Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno of the Supreme Court (SC) must respect the rule of law and the constitutional process ,Associate Justice Noel Tijal urged Sereno to show up at the hearing conducted by the House Committee on Justice in connection with the impeachment complaint filed against her.

And he warned, if Sereno remains obstinate in refusing to recognize the impeachment process, she would be violating the Constitution, which SC justices are mandated to uphold and defend. Sereno, he twitted, should be a role model when it comes to respecting the Constitution.

With those apparent unsolicited advice, it shows the junior justice may have certain serious issues against his chief.

Ateneo eked out defending champion  La Salle, in a squeaker of an 88-86 win as it rode on Isaac Go’s decisive three-point with 24.7 scanty seconds left in the game. This came three weeks after Go missed a point-blank attempt that denied the Eagles a 14-game sweep in the eliminations.

And defeated De La Salle stood proud  still as it paid its ultimate compliment in a display of true sportsmanship.
