Duterte appoints CA justice Henri Inting to Supreme Court

MANILA, Philippines – President Rodrigo Duterte has named Court of Appeals Associate Justice Henri Jean Paul Inting as Supreme Court Associate Justice.

Inting's appointment was confirmed to Rappler by Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra on Monday, May 27. He said Inting's appointment has already been signed by the Chief Executive but Malacañang is yet to release the document to the public.

Inting will be taking the seat in the SC vacated by now Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin. He bested 12 others in the shortlist submitted by the Judicial and Bar Council back in February.

Inting hails from Duterte's hometown of Davao City. He is the younger brother of Socorro Inting, a CA associate justice who was appointed Commission on Elections commissioner by the President in April 2018. 

By the time Duterte steps down in 2022, 13 out of 15  of the Supreme Court's justices will be his appointees. – Rappler.com
