LOOK | Petisyon ni Sen. Delima ibinasura ng Korte sa boto na 9-6

Voting 9-6, the Supreme Court (SC) en banc on Tuesday, October 10, junked the petition of Senator Leila de Lima, saying it is the Muntinlupa Regional Trial Court (RTC), rather than the anti-graft court Sandiganbayan, that has jurisdiction over the drug trade cases filed against her.
She will remain in jail at the custodial center in Camp Crame.
In dismissing the senator's petition, the SC gave the 3 branches of Muntinlupa RTC handling her cases the go-signal to continue with their proceedings
This also means that De Lima's case will not be handled by the Office of the Ombudsman, but by the RTC under the judiciary.
The 4 Justices who came from the Sandiganbayan, including newly-appointed Associate Justice Alexander Gesmundo, voted against De Lima.
So far, Branches 204 and 205 have issued arrest warrants. The one issued in February by Branch 204 Judge Juanita Guerrero was the subject of De Lima's petition, saying the Judge committed grave abuse of discretion.
The SC decision marks another episode in the battle of De Lima, staunchest critic of President Rodrigo Duterte
