Nov 9, 2017 @ 17:46

Supreme Court (SC) Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno believes an independent judiciary would entice more investments in the country.

Because of this, Sereno urged the government to make sure of this if wants the country to prosper.

“All investors who intend to invest for the long term look for stable rule-of-law institutions: independent, non-politicized and professional judiciary, prosecutors, investigators, law enforcement and anti-corruption officials,” she said during the recent 55th Philippine Economic Society (PES) annual meeting.

With this in mind, Sereno pointed out “all government leaders must ensure that they support, not weaken institutions.”

“Institutions build a nation. Strong institutions enable nations to prosper,” she stressed.​
