CJ Reynato Puno: Manila Times’ Person of the Year

The Manila Times has chosen Chief Justice Reynato S. Puno as Person of the Year.

The paper also published today some select quotations from the Chief Justice and his official profile.

The Times made a good choice. With the cooperation of other justices, CJ Puno steered the court to the forefront and coerced the entire government to seriously address long-festering problems of extrajudicial executions, enforced disappearances and  other violations of human rights.  Puno’s activist actions highlighted the fascism and repression of de facto President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.
