Irked by CJ Sereno's insistence that Pres. Duterte might have a hand in the moves to oust her from the Supreme Court, Pres. Duterte said he would make sure that the Chief Magistrated would be impeached.

Pres. Duterte was quoted as saying "I already told Chief Justice Sereno, I am not into the habit to go after my enemy. I have no history on that," Pres. Duterte said during an interview with reporters in Davao City before flying to China to participate in the Boao Forum Asia on Tuesday, April 10, 2018.



The 73-year-old President added further that "I am telling you that I never interfered (in the impeachment trial against you). Now, you keep on blabbering. I will punch you. I will help any investigator. I will really punch you. So I'm putting you on notice that I am now your enemy and you have to be out of the Supreme Court," he added.

Pres. Duterte's statement against CJ Sereno came out as part of the President's response on the Chief Justice remark earlier Monday.
