Chief Justice Diosdado M. Peralta shares a light moment with members of the Philippine Judges Association during the Testimonial held in his honor as the country’s 26th Chief Justice on November 7, 2019.  During his response, Chief Justice Peralta encouraged judges to continue to work hard in the performance of their duties, saying that “the only way to go up is hard work.” 

In the same event, Chief Justice Peralta also said he would strengthen and improve the security of all judges, noting that he had already instructed the Office of the Court Administrator to propose a bill for the creation of the Philippine Marshall Service for the purpose.  (Caption by Helen Grace D.
