Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta on Wednesday (November 20) attended the Senate hearing for the proposed budget of the Supreme Court of the Philippines.
CJ Peralta said they have filed their proposal for the courts to have their own marshals to ensure the security of the members of the judiciary, especially the judges.
“We have already submitted our own proposal. I think it’s already in Congress. I think they already presented the bill. I do not know yet in the Senate,” Peralta said.
The chief magistrate reiterates the necessity to have marshals installed in the judiciary in the midst of reports of judges getting killed in some parts of the country. (with details from Nel Maribojoc) /mbmf
