MANILA, June 4, 2013—The Supreme Court (SC) has rescheduled the oral arguments of the controversial Republic Act (RA) 10354 earlier programmed to be deliberated on June 18 to July 9.
The SC cited new filed petitions and motion to intervene as reasons to move the date of the much awaited oral arguments.
Late this May, students from various schools filed the eleventh petition while The Couples for Christ Foundation for Family and Life (CFC-FFL) a Philippine-based Catholic charismatic lay community that emphasizes family life renewal and evangelization, yesterday filed at the Supreme Court its own petition calling for the voiding of the RH law on constitutional grounds.
However, no notice was issued if the preliminary conference scheduled on June 6 will be moved. (Angelique Guevarra)
