Sereno expresses sadness over friend’s murder
Ousted chief justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno on Wednesday expressed sadness over the murder of her friend, Camarines Sur Judge Ricky Begino.
“Judge Ricky served with idealism especially pronounced when he led the Philippine Trial Judges League in 2016 to 2017. He was a kind and good human being and his family, with whom the Chief Justice condoles, must be grieving his loss. So many lawyers, prosecutors and judges have tasted violent death in the recent years.
The Chief Justice is relieved with the prompt action of authorities in his case, but requests them to address the increasing frequency of violent attacks against our people, including those involved in the administration of justice,” Sereno said.
