Atty. Midas Marquez, a court administrator meant to testify at the impeachment case versus Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno was present at the birthday party of the impeachment complainant, Atty. Lorenzo Gadon last March.

A Facebook post by Vivian Velez, showed Marquez in a photo with Velez which apparently was taken during said birthday celebration.

“We only get together when there’s a good reason and last night was a great one. It was the birthday bash of our very good friend Atty. Larry Gadon at Cafe Del Mar. Thanks SLG, we had so much fun… with Pompy, close friends and associates,” Velez said.

According to Gadon however, the party was allegedly open to the public, and there were people who were not his guests.

“The party was in a bar not exclusive to me and my guests. In fact may ibang nasa bar na hindi ko bisita, the bar was open to public,” Gadon said in a text message.

“Maraming mga sosyal at sikat nagpupunta dun. He probably was there [because] its (sic) open to public and being sikat nag take photo mga tao."

The Sereno camp declined to give a comment on the issue.

“I hope you understand, the [Chief Justice] does not wish to speculate on those photos,” Sereno spokesperson Josalyn Deinla said.

The birthday bash also saw former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, former congressman Omar Fajardo and his wife Department of Trade and Industry Assistant Secretary Ameenah Fajardo and Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption chair Dante Jimenez as guests.

Marquez will testify in the impeachment case.

The lawyer will speak about allegations against the Chief Justice, including Sereno’s alleged creation of a Judicial Decentralization Office and her alleged delaying of retirement and survivorship benefits of judges and justices.
