After a spate of recent killings targeting judges, the Supreme Court on Tuesday afternoon the creation of a task force that will address the issue.
Based on a report from The STAR, SC urged its committee on security chaired by Justice Marvic Leonen to form a task force that will coordinate with appropriate agencies in addressing the killing of judges following the third justice slain in the last three months.
The high court said it condemns the killing of the judges which weakens the fair decision-making of the law.
In September, an Australian Law professor sent a letter to Philstar.com mentioning that the “Philippines is a very dangerous place for lawyers” following the number of attacks to lawyers and judges.
