BUSINESS groups consolidated themselves to attack what they say are corrupt justices, claiming the country’s justice system can be reformed if these judges and legal personalities are probed.
The newly formed coalition that calls itself the Judicial Reform Initiative or JRI boasts of having members “the country’s most influential business organizations and civil society groups.”
The JRI is currently composed of members of the Financial Executives Institute of the Philippines (Finex), Management Association of the Philippines (MAP), Institute of Corporate Directors (ICD), Harvard Law School Alumni Association (HLSAA Philippines), Philippine Association of Law Schools (PALS), Movement for Restoration of Peace and Order (MRPO), American Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club of Manila and Operation Clean Hands.
The JRI, in a statement released over the weekend, said it is clamoring for a review and publication of the performance of judges and justices nationwide.
The group is also lobbying for a creation of a special body “to investigate judges and justices suspected of corruption or any wrong-doing.”
