Judiciary employees are wearing black and red to show their protest against President Aquino’s criticisms against the Supreme Court.

Associate Justice Presbitero Velasco, Jr., Associate Justices Mariano Del Castillo and Martin Villarama Jr., and Philippine Judicial Academy Chancellor and retired SC Associate Justice Rodolfo Azcuna also wore black and red during the flag-raising ceremony at the SC.

Aside from PNoy’s criticisms, the employees are also protesting the pending bill in the House of Representatives that threatens to remove the Judiciary Development Fund (JDF) used by the judiciary for their operational expenses, and for justices, judges and court personnel allowances.
