QC donates court bus to SC

  • March 21, 2017

QUEZON CITY, March 21 (PIA)--The Quezon City government donated a custom-built bus to the Supreme Court to be used as mobile court house in support of the Enhanced Justice on Wheels (EJOW) program.

 

Quezon City is the first local government unit in Metro Manila to make such donation to the Supreme Court. The city’s donation now brings to 10 the total number of mobile courts operated by the SC for its EJOW program.

 

Court Administrator Midas Marquez represented Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno during the turnover held during Monday’s flag-raising ceremony at QC Hall.

 

“Makakaasa po kayong lahat ng mabilis na paggulong ng hustisya dito sa Quezon City sa pamamagitan ng EJOW program at iba pang reporma na ipinatutupad ng Korte Suprema,”   Marquez said.

 

Vice President Leni Robredo was principal witness during the ceremony.

 

In 2012, Quezon City was chosen by the Supreme Court to pilot-host the launching of its Enhanced Justice on Wheels (EJOW) Program to ensure the speedy dispensation of justice, especially those involving poor litigants.

 

The QC government, under Mayor Herbert Bautista, is pouring in a P500 million investment to the judiciary as an affirmation of the city government’s commitment to provide the poor with better access to the justice system.

 

The city government’s investment includes the construction of new justice halls aimed at providing a more spacious area for trial court judges and the justice department building which now houses the City Prosecutor’s Office.

 

Quezon City has also acquired a 3-hectare property in Payatas which will become the site of the new city jail.  (QC PAISO/RJB/SDL/PIA-NCR)
