Chief Justice Lucas P. Bersamin is warmly welcomed by Presiding Justice Roman G. Del Rosario, the Associate Justices, officials, and employees of the Court of Tax Appeals (CTA) during his visit on January 16, 2019 at the CTA compound in Diliman, Quezon City.  In his address, the Chief Justice emphasized the important role of the CTA in the Judiciary. “Your institution, the CTA, is an important cog in the wheels of Justice in this country. So, let us respect the CTA and for all that it has stood for in our Judicial System.” “As head of the Judiciary…I cannot but be humble towards all of you, for my being so is the only way by which I could say thank you enough,” he added. This is the chief magistrate’s first visit to an appellate court since his appointment to the highest post in the Judiciary on November 28, 2018. (Caption by Darylle Evie Mae C.
