SC backs more court branches in Baguio
by Harley F. Palangchao

The Supreme Court Deputy Court Administrator has informed Baguio Rep. Mark Go that they concur with the operation of four additional court branches in Baguio.

Go reported that SC Deputy Court Administrator Raul Villanueva said his office is waiting for the Department of Budget and Management for the issuance of a notice of organization and compensation action for the organization of the four courts to proceed.

The establishment and operation of two additional courts – municipal trial court for cities and regional trial court has been approved by virtue of Republic Act 10696.

Signed by former president Benigno Aquino III in 2015, RA 10696 has directed the Chief Justice, in coordination with the Secretary of the Department of Justice, to immediately include in the court’s program the operation of two additional branches of the MTCC and two additional branches of the RTC in Baguio, the funding of which shall be included in the annual General Appropriations Act.

The funds necessary for the operation of the courts shall be appropriated and released only upon the actual organization of the courts and the appointment of its personnel.

Following commitments from the SC Court Administrator, Go has made some significant requests from the judiciary and the Department of Interior and Local Government during the 2018 national budget deliberation in the House of Representatives.

“Rest assured that we will help the judiciary monitor release of said funds to fully materialize the creation of these additional courts in our city. May I also note that the other branches of the government, like the judiciary, is our able partner in effecting our common objective of serving the people,” Go said.

“The operationalization of these additional branches will aid in decongesting the current case load of other branches that would further improve and expedite the disposition of cases in our lower courts,” he added.

Go likewise mulled for the upgrade of the Baguio City’s Hall of Justice, saying it would warrant to an efficient performance of function of court personnel to fully realize the government’s objective towards a swift delivery of justice for the people.
