Masbate BM Arevalo lauds appointment of his frat brod as SC justice


Masbate Senior Provincial Board Member Jason Arevalo hailed the appointment of his frat brod as the newest member of the Supreme Court.

“Cheers, Senior Brod Jhosep Lopez, to your appointment as new Associate Justice of the Supreme Court,” Arevalo said.

Justice Lopez, who was an associate justice at the Court of Appeals prior to this appointment, replaced Justice Priscilla Baltazar-Padilla.

Baltazar-Padilla took an early retirement last November citing health reasons.

Arevalo, a lawyer and a product of UP College of Law, also said that he’s hoping for the success of his frat brod at his stint at the high court.

“We pray for your success as a magistrate of the High Court, for you to always dispense justice according to the law, to always maintain moral independence, to follow the footsteps of our other Sigma Rhoan justices like Chief Justice Marcelo Fernan and the best Chief Justice this nation never had, Antonio Carpio, among others,” said.

“As members of the UP Law-based Sigma Rho, Seekers of the Right we always are!” he added.
