CJ Peralta Rallies Fellow Ilocanos to Support the Judiciary. Chief Justice Diosdado M. Peralta urges judges and court employees, prosecutors, and lawyers from the Public Assistance Office from Ilocos Norte to support his Ten-Point Program which is primarily geared towards the declogging of the court dockets. Speaking before the large crowd which gathered at the Hall of Justice in Laoag City on February 7, 2020, Chief Justice Peralta also underscored that he wants “a Judiciary that is disciplined.” He extolled his fellow Ilocanos for being hardworking, stressing that he never expected to become the 26th Chief Justice of the Philippines as he shared to them his love for honest, dedicated, and hard work.
