Chief justice says efforts lead to an independent judiciary

Santo Domingo.- Supreme Court chief justice Mariano German said Wednesday that he’s committed to an independent judiciary that benefits citizens, expressed in fairness and responsibility to the defendant, never hiding behind a breach of the entrusted task.

He said the judiciary is called to promote more services and better justice, “since peace will come only when justice is served.”

Germán, speaking at the Supreme Court in the presence of president Danilo Medina to mark the Day of the Judiciary, said they’ve worked with an unwavering commitment to transparency, a sound administration of justice, institutional strengthening, promoting timely access to justice and the search for alliances to advance its integrity and quality.

Also present in the ceremony were Senate president Cristina Lizardo, Justice minister Francisco Dominguez, United States ambassador James Brewster, among others.
