A new petition by the Integrated Bar of the Philippines has recently been added to the case. Both ask for the cancellation or revocation of the notice of withdrawal. The response of the Office of the Solicitor General to the petitions is here along with audio files of the proceedings.

The PCICC was heard on 28 August and the Senators on 4 September with a brief presentation of arguments, and extensive questioning by the Supreme Court sitting en banc, signifying the importance of the matter.

The third and last day of hearings of the case took place on 9 October The government, represented by the Solicitor General, was heard, with the proceedings taking just over an hour and a half. The Integrated Bar of the Philippines was included in the proceedings at the last hearing — but did not have the opportunity to present arguments before the court. All parties now have thirty days within which to file written memoranda, after which the court will pronounce its decision.

As an aside — but not entirely unrelated — the first hearing of the petitioners coincided with the first day in office of the Supreme Court Chief Justice Teresita De Castro — an appointment mired in controversy, due to the unseemly ousting of the previous Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno in May of this year.

The hearings for the Senators was also delayed, due to the denial of a motion for the jailed opposition senator Leila de Lima — one of the senators who has approached the court in this case — to argue the case before the Supreme Court.

In continuing turmoil,on the day of the hearing for the Senators, an arrest warrant issued by the President revoking a previous amnesty against another one of the six petitioner senators — also a key opponent of the President — was made public.

And continuing the trend of significant legal events at each of the three hearings, the last hearing was the last day in office of the Chief Justice , after a day term. She was not present at the last hearing, and will not participate in the decision of the court in this matter. Legal arguments The arguments at the Philippine Supreme Court were based on domestic law as well as international law. The posts do not address all the nuances of domestic law, but present the more contested arguments at the hearings.
