OFFICIALS and employees of the Department of Justice (DOJ) led by Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin “Boying” Remulla joined the entire nation in mourning the passing of former President Fidel V. Ramos.
Remulla said Ramos will be remembered as a pillar in improving the justice system in the country.
He remembered that Ramos, in one of his speeches in 1992, said: “I am determined to see that our people become satisfied with the justice system. This is the only way they can appreciate the meaning of the words ‘Rule of Law.’”
One of Ramos’s legacies as the country’s 12thPresident, Remulla said, was his order to include, as an integral part of the continuing education and training of personnel in the department, was the study of human rights.
Aside from this, Ramos also authorized Registries of Deeds to occupy or continue to occupy office spaces assigned to them in buildings that have been constructed or will be constructed to building plans approved under the Justice System Infrastructure Program (JUSIP) to ensure the protection and preservation of land titles.
“The DOJ will always remember President Ramos and honor him by adhering to his words: ‘Justice is a Government project: Do not delay,’” Remulla said.
