WATCH: Chief Justice Peralta meets the press

Live

For the 2nd time this year, Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta will have a press conference with justice reporters on Friday, October 23.

Just like the last time, the press conference will be held online via Zoom.

Since the time of ousted chief justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, the Supreme Court has held press conferences with the chief justice only once a year. Lately, it has gotten to the habit of holding a press conference with a newly-appointed chief justice.

Peralta slightly breaks from the "dignified silence" practice of the Court by holding two press conferences in just 4 months. The Supreme Court says it's also to mark Peralta's 1st anniversary as chief justice.

Peralta is expected to take questions from the justice media related to the Supreme Court's decisions in the pandemic.

The Philippine judiciary has recently taken a hit because of the death of 3-month-old baby River Nasino, described by the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) as "falling into the cracks of the justice system."

There's also pressure on the Supreme Court to act with the full-swing implementation of the feared anti-terror law.

Tune in to the press conference 9 am, Friday, October 23.
