Justice Peralta in charge of Trillanes Supreme Court petition

MANILA, Philippines – The Supreme Court (SC) petition of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV was raffled off Friday, September 7, to Associate Justice Diosdado Peralta, a court insider confirmed to Rappler.
The special raffle was conducted on Friday after Trillanes’ lawyer requested for one. Special raffles are allowed for urgent matters, based on the SC’s internal rules.

The internal rules could have also allowed Peralta to make a recommendation also on Friday, but the Supreme Court closed at 5 pm without one.
As such, the petition will be tackled Tuesday, September 11, when the en banc meets.
Peralta’s recommendation as member-in-charge will carry some weight in determining Trillanes’ fate.
The most immediate concern for Trillanes is whether or not the Supreme Court will vote to grant him a temporary restraining order (TRO). If it does, Trillanes can finally leave the Senate premises where he has been holed up since September 4, to shield himself from a possible military arrest.
