Court says President can't ban Subic car imports

THE COURT of Appeals has ruled that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's ban on the importation of used vehicles was unconstitutional.

In a 31-page ruling on Feb. 14, the appellate court's 4th Division upheld an Olongapo court ruling which nullified Executive Order 156, which prohibited the importation of used motor vehicles, saying that it had no legal basis.

"There is no law granting the President of the Republic of the Philippines authority to prohibit the importation of used motor vehicles. Consequently, we rule that Executive Order No. 156 has no constitutional and statutory basis and is therefore, invalid,” said the decision penned by Justice Perlita Tria Tirona.

The court said the executive department could not claim that Ms Arroyo issued the order based on her exercise of police power. Inquirer News Service
