Duterte names new Sandiganbayan justice

January 16, 2019

PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte has appointed former Makati Regional Trial Court Judge Ronald Moreno as associate justice of the Sandiganbayan.

Duterte appointed Moreno on June 8, 2018 but his appointment paper was only released to the media yesterday.

Moreno replaced former Sandiganbayan associate justice Alexander Gesmundo who was appointed to the Supreme Court.

Moreno was appointed as presiding judge of Makati RTC Branch 147 by then president Benigno Aquino III in 2012.

Moreno earned his law degree from the University of Santo Tomas.  With Efren Montano
