      Solicitor General Jose Calida announced this morning: “I’m filing quo warranto proceedings to oust University of the Philippines Siliman Librarian Paul Desiderio for using office time in tweeting and tagging me for quoting C.S. Lewis, the author of Snow White and the Eight Dwarves, and I will implead UP President Diego Concepcion and UP Diliman Chancellor Lucio Tan for allowing this travesty of literacy.”

     This was the response of the solicitor general after the University of the Philippines Diliman Librarian tweeted the following at 6:41pm April 10, which was reported in inquirer.net the other day:

{Tweet from @UPDLibrary: “Last night, @SolGenCalida shared a great quote but a fact check shows that it is incorrectly attributed to C.S. Lewis.

(embedded, tweet from @SolGenCalida): “Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching” -C.S. Lewis }

      When asked for the legal basis for quo warranto proceedings against the UP Diliman Librarian and UP officials, the solicitor general replied: “If the Supreme Court can entertain quo warranto proceedings against the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, what more, or what less, against a mere librarian and against state university officials.”
       The solicitor general concluded the press conference by saying: “To paraphrase my Ateneo constitutional law professor Joaquin Bernal, “The business of a UP Librarian… is not sufficiently described… when you merely say that… it is to file books, or to make card catalogs… It is to file books grandly! According to book cover color… and to make great … pop-up card catalogs.”
