Chief Justice Teresita Leonardo-De Castro has accepted the courtesy dismissal of Public Information Office Chief, lawyer Theodore Te.

Te & # 39; s term as spokesperson for the Supreme Court is co-terminus with deposed chief judge Maria Lourdes Sereno. His position was expanded when Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio, along with divisional chairmen of the High Court, including De Castro, signed his extension pending the appointment of a new Chief Justice.

Te, in his letter of resignation, also urged the High Court to retain all the staff of the Public Information Office (PIO), some of whom did not take plantilla positions.

Last week Te de Castro met to finish the case before he resigned on 7 September.

De Castro appointed lawyer Ma. Victoria Gleoresty Guerra, deputy head of the SC PIO as a substitute for Te.

Guerra previously served as the spokesperson for the Supreme Court after Court Administrator Jose Midas Marquez left the SC PIO and until the appointment of Te. / CBB
