Iloilo lawyers say no to cut in judiciary budget

PIA Press Release

Iloilo lawyers say no to cut in judiciary budget

Iloilo (8 December) -- Ilonggo lawyers are also supporting the protest of the members of the Judiciary against proposed reduction in their budget for 2011.

Integrated Bar of the Philippines-Iloilo president Atty. Marvin Daquilanea said that aside from this, they are also protesting the non-implementation of the salary increases for judges, despite the fact that other agencies already had done so.

"It is unfair that judges are receiving salaries lower than the other court personnel," Daquilanea said.

He also said that the reduction in the budget of the Judiciary would mean smaller manpower and inadequate resources for this branch of the government.

As a form of protest, Daquilanea said they will be wearing black arm bands every Monday during Flag Ceremonies, until their protest is heard and answered. (PIA6/ESS)
