SC Justice lectures Lagman after insisting that Marawi Crisis cannot be consider as ‘rebellion

Lagman stuck to his old argument and said the raising of an ISIS flag is the terror groups' longtime resort to "cheap propaganda."


Supreme Court Justice Mariano del Castillo told Albay First District Representative Edcel Lagman that the situation in Marawi City can be considered as act of rebellion.

"They're precisely putting up their flag there to supplant the authority of the local government of their own, in effect they're trying to remove the allegiance of Marawi City from the government," Del Castillo told Albay First District Representative Edcel Lagman, who argued for the minority lawmakers group of petitioners.

He slammed President Rodrigo Duterte’s report to congress, which Lagman labeled as full of lies and falsities.

Lagman stressed that President Duterte didn’t consulted the defense secretary or the generals before declaring martial law.

“It stands to reason that when the President exercises a very serious, extraordinary power, he must be supported by the necessary coordination, recommendation, and consultation from the ranking officials of the defense and military sectors,” Lagman said.

He also said that the video of Isnilon Hapilon planning to takeover of Marawi City that convinced the senators to support the martial law declaration was recovered two days after martial law was declared so it’s not the basis of President Duterte to declare martial law.

Justice del Castillo asked Lagman if the lawmaker already visited Marawi City since the crisis erupted to which Lagman answered no.


del Castillo said that petitioners cannot say martial law in Mindanao if they didn’t personally visited Marawi City and experienced the real situation in the place.

“So it would be too difficult to say that the situation there does not amount to rebellion. You’ve not been there, you’re not on the ground, you don’t know the situation there. How can you dispute now the findings of sufficiency of factual bases for the declaration?” del Castillo said.

The SC Justice said that many soldiers already died and people already evacuated in their homes because of the war in Marawi City and he asked Lagman why he’s so worried about the martial law in Mindanao.

“The military casualty count as of last Sunday is already 58 soldiers, Congressman, dead soldiers of ours. And there are 25,000 evacuees now in Iligan City. So for you the situation is still not that serious for Martial Law to … I mean, Martial Law will only be with us for 60 days, assuming that he [Duterte] won’t lift the proclamation earlier. With all the safeguards, I don’t know why you are so worried.” del Castillo told Lagman.
