Negros judiciary staging
‘court holiday’ today, too


Members of the judiciary in Negros Occidental are joining a nationwide court holiday today in solidarity with Chief Justice Renato Corona who has been impeached by members of the House of Representatives.

This was announced by Bacolod Regional Trial Court Judge Franklin Demonteverde, national president of the Philippine Judges Association, yesterday.

The House impeachment complaint accused Corona of "betrayal of public trust" in making decisions favorable to former president Gloria Arroyo, while also accusing him of personal corruption for allegedly siphoning money from judicial funds.moremoremore
