Committee on Justice
House of Representatives
Constitution Hills, Quezon City
Dear Chairman Umali,
I write to earnestly request Your Honor to extend your liberality in allowing me to propound clarificatory or cross-examination questions to Supreme Court Associate Justice Teresita L. de Castro in the event she appears as a witness in the impeachment proceedings.
Following the doctrine that every rule has an exception, I am making this urgent request as an exception to the ruling of the Chair and the Committee on Justice that non-members of the committee can attend but not participate in the proceedings.
I shall truly appreciate your favorable response.
Warmest personal regards.
Very truly yours,
EDCEL C. LAGMAN
