Manila Trial court judge says perjury case vs Lozada gives the court power to summon First Couple

Judge Lorredo, in his order for Jun Lozada’s arraignment on Thursday, raises very interesting legal points. Advising Mike Defensor to drop the complaint, he points out that if Defensor insists in pursuing it the First Couple can be summoned by the Court as hostile witnesses, if the defense asks for it, and arrested if they refuse.
Should the police refuse to serve the warrants, he says, some of the political opposition — among them former Manila police chief and now Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim, and former PNP chief and now senator Panfilo Lacson — may be deputized to serve and implement the arrest warrants.

The order is reprinted in full by Vera Files.
