TAGAYTAY— Christopher Lawrence ‘Kuya Bong’ Go today lauded the role judges play in the society, and vowed to enhance their welfare which will increase the efficiency in the delivery of justice.
“Narito ako upang magbigay suporta sa Philippine Judges Association (PJA). It will give me the opportunity to learn about some pressing issues upang mapag aralan how to improve their welfare of course. Alam niyo sa pagpapataguyod ng batas at katarungan, malaki po ang ginagampanan ng ating Regional Trial Court (RTC) Judges,” he said during an ambush interview in the 2018 midterm convention of the Philippine Judges Association.
Kuya Bong Go said he will look into the proposal of different measures for the welfare of the judges as their function is one of the pillars that supports democracy.
“Marami po tayong dapat gawin dito. We will further review the proposal to create the Philippine Marshal System. Mahalaga masiguro natin ang kaligtasan ng mga huwes, pag-aralan natin ang mungkahi. Susuriin din natin ‘yung exemption ng salaries of judges from Salary Standardization. Proposed creation of Office of Judges at-Large.” Go said during an ambush interview.
Kuya Bong Go said RTC Judges play an essential role in advancing the law and justice in the Philippines hence, vowed to extend his assistance. He can serve as bridge of the public to President Duterte in his private capacity.
“Titingnan natin ito. Ako naman, in my capacity now as private citizen, ay sabi ko tutulong ako bilang inyong tulay sa Pangulo at kung ano ang pwede kong gawin. Kung sa Kongreso ay tutulong po kami. Kung anuman po ang mas makakabuti sa ating mga huwes,” Go said.
Kuya Bong Go also lauded Tagaytay City for being part of President Duterte’s fight against drugs.
“I am happy na na-declare ‘yung Tagaytay City as an area or city that is deemed drug free. Walang drug pusher and traders or no laboratories or resorts used for drug session. I think Tagaytay is the 2nd Cavite town that was declared drug free after Mendez. So tuloy-tuloy po ito at sana po ay at least join our government or kay Pangulong Duterte. Dahil seryoso siya sa kaniyang kampanya laban sa droga at hindi po siya titigil hanggang sa huling araw ng kaniyang termino,” he said.
Moreover, Kuya Bong Go also said one of his advocacies will be the expansion of Malasakit Centers nationwide.
“Sa ngayon priority ko talaga kapag nanalo is Malasakit Center, to improve health medical services throughout the country,” Go said.
After attending the 2018 Midterm Convention of the Philippine Judges Association, Kuya Bong Go proceeded to SMX Convention in Mall of Asia to commend the mechanical engineers as they hold their 66th Philippine Society of Mechanical Engineers (PSME) Convention.
PSME is being tapped by the government offices for technical advice, notably in the field of public and workplace safety. For Kuya Bong Go, mechanical engineers play a vital role in the industrialization of the country.
