MANILA, Philippines – On Wednesday, August 28, Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno will face senior journalists, including Rappler’s Maria Ressa, in a rare press conference.
The meet-up with the press comes a full year since she assumed the top post in the highest court, where she has introduced reforms but also made decisions consistently siding with the President who appointed her.
At 53, Sereno is the youngest Chief Justice to be appointed in recent history. She is the first female to hold the position, and will occupy that for 17 more years.
