Supreme Court to set up ICT infra, beef up manpower to improve judicial system

THE COUNTRY’S top magistrate has committed continued improvements in the judicial system, including the establishment of an information and communication technology infrastructure (ICT) “to improve case management and court administration,” according to the business sector-led Judicial Reform Initiative (JRI).

In a statement on Thursday, JRI said they met with Supreme Court Chief Justice Alexander G. Gesmundo on June 7, where they discussed programs for speeding up legal processes.

The court plans to create new positions such as Judicial Region Court Administrators and Trial Court Managers to complement the planned migration to a more digital system.

JRI also pushed for the implementation of mandated periods on the resolution of cases as provided under the Constitution. Article VIII, Section 15 of the Constitution states that “all cases or matters…must be decided or resolved within (24) months from date of submission for the (Supreme Court), and, unless reduced by the (Supreme Court), (12) months for all lower collegiate courts, and three months for all other lower courts.”

JRI said the Supreme Court also “plans to complete the revision and consolidation of the Rules of Court within a two-year time frame.”

JRI Chairperson Sherisa P. Nuesa and President Jose Jerome R. Pascual said these plans demonstrate “the serious commitment of the (Supreme Court) to improve court governance and speed up delivery of justice, which should contribute to a positive economic climate and the attainment of related United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.” — Bianca Angelica D.
