Panganiban proud to see ex-CJ Davide’s nephew named a Supreme Court justice
Former Chief Justice Artemio Panganiban sent his congratulations to newly-minted Associate Justice Japar Dimaampao after he was appointed to the Supreme Court.
Dimaampao, 57, was a long-time Court of Appeals justice until he was named by President Rodrigo Duterte as the second Muslim magistrate part of the SC.
Panganiban called the appointment a “long-delayed but well-deserved promotion” for the abogado.
“I know him personally to be as trustworthy as his uncle, retired CJ Hilario G. Davide Jr., as gentle as his aunt Gigi Davide, and as devout a faithful Muslim is to the teachings of Allah, as a good Christian is to the commands of Jesus Christ to love God and neighbor,” he added.
