MetadataShow full item record
The Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) yesterday asked the Supreme Court (SC) to grant them more time to confer with the fishermen from Zambales and Palawan who are their clients in the petition for a writ of kalikasan. IBP national president Domingo Egon Cayosa said they needed to meet with the fishermen so they could properly respond to the claims made by the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) that 19 of the fishermen withdrew as petitioners in the case. “Considering the new allegations by the Office of the Solicitor General, the handling lawyers will request the Supreme Court for time to confer with the fishermen in Zambales and in Palawan so that they can more appropriately act on the developments in the case,” said Cayosa in a one-page statement.
