Public told to settle conflicts before lupons
by DILG release

Feuding neighbors do not need to go to the courts to settle their disputes because they can seek help in their own barangays through their Lupong Tagapamayapa.

This was stressed by Department of the Interior and Local Government Sec. Eduardo M. Año during the Lupong Tagapamayapa Incentives Awards (LTIA) ceremony held recently in Manila.

“Do not hesitate to go to the Lupong Tagapamayapa in your barangay if you are involved in a neighborhood spat. The Lupong Tagapamayapa can serve as the go-between which can help resolve your issues in a shorter period of time than when you go directly to court to seek redress. On top of that, you will also save money that you would have spent for litigation costs,” said Año.

He said all disputes, civil and criminal in nature, where parties actually reside in the same city or municipality may be handled by the Lupong Tagapama-yapa.

Among the cases that are within the bounds of authority of the Lupong Tagapamayapa are: alarms and scandals; less serious physical injuries; slight physical injuries and maltreatment; unlawful arrest; light and grave coercion; simple seduction; issuing checks without sufficient funds; removal, sale, or pledge of mortgaged property; and qualified trespass to dwelling (without use of violence and intimidation).

Based on reports submitted to the DILG’s Bureau of Local Government Supervision, last year alone, the 39,322 lupon nationwide received 468,682 cases, of which 75.82 percent or 355,392 cases were amicably settled.
