Review juvenile justice law – Go


MANILA — Former Special Assistant to the President Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go on Monday reiterated the need for a legislative review of the juvenile justice law.

In an interview with reporters after an event with barangay leaders in Batangas, Go, who is gunning for a Senate seat in the 2019 polls, said the Juvenile Justice Act has not been properly implemented as drug syndicates use minors as couriers.

“Alam ko naman na ang mga kabataan ay ayaw maging biktima ng mga sindikatong ito (I know the youth do not want to be victims by these syndicates),” Go said.
