Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia is pushing through with her plan to remove the Marcelo Fernan Hall of Justice at the Capitol compound in Cebu City.

The Marcelo Fernan Palace of Justice was declared unfit for occupancy after it sustained damage in the magnitude 7.2 earthquake in 2013.

Garcia said that she has informed Supreme Court Associate Justice Marvic Leonen about the matter during his visit to the Capitol on May 31. (

Leonen reportedly promised to channel the matter to Chief Justice Alexander Gesmundo.

“He is aware that it is really an eyesore. As a matter of fact, it presents a stark contrast to our Capitol building so we hope that this issue will finally be resolved,” said Garcia.
