Fallout from Duterte's Scuttling Supreme Court

Philippines authoritarian leader Rodrigo Duterte has turned the South East Asia nation’s Supreme Court (SC) into his lap dog.
“I’m putting you on notice that I’m your enemy and you have to be out of the Supreme Court”, said Duterte publicly to SC Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, on 9 April. (See Inquirer article: Duterte Declares war on Sereno)

Duterte’s “Enemy”, Chief Justice Sereno Challenges Duterte to Resign
A soft, whispered voice from the brighter but forgotten past calls out for Duterte to resign. It’s like the hole that is made in the ocean when you remove a drop of water. Who?
