DoJ chief to take ‘wellness’ leave 

JUSTICE Secretary Jesus Crispin C. Remulla will take a 10-day “wellness” leave for undisclosed reasons, the Department of Justice (DoJ) said on Monday. 

His leave is effective immediately, it said in a statement, without providing more details. 

Justice Undersecretary Raul T. Vasquez will take charge in his absence, Mr. Remulla told reporters in a Viber message.  

Mr. Remulla underwent a medical checkup last week and was supposed to return to work on Thursday, but he took the rest of the week off.  

He was supposed to deliver a speech at a DoJ event on Monday. Mr. Vasquez read his speech instead and announced his leave there. — John Victor D. Ordoñez
