RP, South Africa Judiciaries Sign Cooperation Accord


Chief Justice Reynato S. Puno and Chief Justice Pius N. Langa of the Constitutional Court of South Africa signed in Pretoria yesterday an agreement that would enhance the relations of the two judiciaries, particularly on education and research.
