PHILIPPINES: Court Workers Sing, Dance For Transparency

11 November 2003

SunStar Network (Philippines) reports that court employees, instead of chanting protest lines, sang old-time favorites and danced to boogey tunes as they demanded transparency in the disbursement of the Judiciary Development Fund (JDF).

Wearing red shirts or red armbands, the court employees called for a salary increase and transparency in the disbursement of the Judiciary Development Fund (JDF).

The alleged misuse of the JDF prompted Reps. Felix William Fuentebella, of Camarines Sur, and Gilberto Teodoro, of Tarlac, to file an impeachment complaint, which was subsequently endorsed by more than 80 congressmen.
