Broadcast journalist Henry Omaga-Diaz will advocate the repair of the country’s courtrooms with dilapidated fixtures and infrastructure this Thursday (Feb 2) in “Krusada.”
Among the grounds cited for Chief Justice Renato Corona’s impeachment is his alleged failure to account for judiciary development funds amounting to billions of pesos, part of which were spent on court rooms that were financed but not created.
Amidst the intense showdown between the prosecution and defense in the impeachment hearing, Henry will reveal in his report the wretched state of Philippine trial courts – from lawyers, parties, and witnesses cramming in very small spaces and judges sharing the same courtrooms, resulting in the unintentional delay of case proceedings.
Henry believes that courtrooms should operate in strategic and decent locations because the state of these structures reflects the quality of justice from the legal system.
“I hope something good would come out of Chief Justice Corona’s trial. I hope that this process will lead to the complete reform of the country’s judicial system that would give citizens the justice they deserve,” Henry stressed.
Listen, take part and be one with Henry’s crusade because it takes more than words to make a stand. Watch “Krusada” this Thursday (Feb 2) after “Bandila” on ABS-CBN, or earlier on DZMM TeleRadyo (SkyCable Channel 26), 9:15 PM.
