MANILA, Philippines — Inaasahan ang mabilis na pag-usad at paglilitis sa mga kaso sa buong bansa.
Ito ay matapos na inilunsad ng Supreme Court, Department of Justice, Department of the Interior and Local Government at Philippine National Police ang electronic subpoena o E-subpoena.
Ayon kay PNP Deputy Director for Operations, Deputy Dir. Gen. Leonardo Espina, mahalaga ang mabilis na transmittal ng subpoena lalo na sa taong sangkot sa illegal drugs at iba pang heinous crime na sinampahan ng kaso ng PNP.
“This time utilizing technology to our advantage. Wala nang dahilan na hindi makakarating ang mga subpoena sa kinauukulan. Wala nang dahilan para sabihing delayed ang dating ng subpeona,” ani Gen. Espina.
Sinabi pa nito na naiiwasan na rin ang paggamit ng papel kaya makatitipid ang pamahalaan at ma-iiwasan na ang delay sa delivery ng subpoena.
Sinabi naman ni Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno na hindi nagiging katanggaptanggap ang mga nadi-dismiss na kaso dahil sa delay ng pagdating ng subpoena.
“Kapag nagpadala sila ng subpoena na ayon sa tradisyunal na pamamaraan na papel ang ginagamit ay mga dalawang buwan po maaring abutin bago makarating ang subpeonang ipinadala ng korte sa pulis station at maari rin pong huli na at tapos na ang naka-schedule na hearing,” paliwanag ni CJ Sereno.
Idinagdag naman ni DILG Sec. Mar Roxas na wala na ang “just-tiis” sa halip na justice o “OK na yan syndrome” na sinabi naman ni DOJ Sec. Leila de lima.
Ani Roxas, “Committed po kami at committed tayong lahat na ung “just-tiis” ay magiging tunay na justice .”
Pahayag naman ng Kalihim ng Kagawaran ng Katarungan, “For far too long, our system is characterized by inefficiency and delay, fragmentation and lack of action, the result is a lost of trust. Confidence by the citizen in the ability and dedication of government to deliver the one public good that is desired and needed by all — the cry for justice.”
Sa E-subpoena system, mangangailangan lamang ng computer units, internet connections, private mail account, user name at password na pamamahalaan ng clerk of court, court administrator at ng PNP-Directorate for Investigation and Detective Management (PNP-DIDM).
Base sa tala ng DIDM nasa 700-800 subpoena bawat araw ang kanilang natatanggap nationwide.
Sa pamamagitan ng e-subpoena, naniniwala silang wala nang kaso na madi -dismiss dahil sa non- appearance ng akusado o nag-aakusa. (LEA YLAGAN, UNTV News)
MANILA, Philippines – The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) on Wednesday directed local government units (LGU) to resume their road-clearing operations after more than seven months of suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic.
DILG Secretary Eduardo Año said the resumption of road clearing operations will officially start on November 16, depending on the quarantine classification of LGUs.
LGUs will have about two months or until January 15, 2021 to comply with the directive, he added.
“We hope that the LGUs, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, will show the same enthusiasm and positive results that they were able to achieve last year as we aim for safer and accessible roads free from illegal and potentially hazardous encroachments,” Año said in a statement.
“Despite the January 15 deadline, we wish to remind the LGUs that road-clearing operation is year-long endeavor, kaya kailangan natin ang kanilang commitment at pakikiisa,” he added.
Under DILG Memorandum Circular 2020-145, Año said that the resumption of road-clearing operations will vary, in different degrees, depending on the quarantine classification of a certain area.
Areas under modified general community quarantine (MGCQ) levels should render full implementation of road clearing operations.
Those under general community quarantine (GCQ) will execute the partial implementation of the program while the road-clearing efforts in areas under modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) and ECQ will remain suspended.
Early this week, President Rodrigo Duterte placed the entire National Capital Region and other areas of the country under GCQ for the whole month of November with no region in the country placed under the strictest community quarantine classification.
Under the DILG memorandum, road obstructions such as vehicular terminals except in areas designated by the LGUs; vending sites; house encroachments that obstruct the right-of-way; debris, waste materials, and other junked items, among others must be cleared off roadways.
Structures or obstructions erected for locally stranded individuals must also be removed upon return to their intended destination.
Parked ambulance and public emergency vehicles; checkpoints established by IATF, LGUs, PNP, and AFP; and temporary obstructions caused by the establishment of bike lanes, however, are exempted from removal, the DILG said.
Año said that results of road clearing efforts conducted by the LGU will be subjected to validation from January 18 to 22, 2021.
The DILG chief reiterated that LGUs that will fail to comply with the presidential directive will face administrative charges.
In his State of the Nation Address last year, Duterte ordered the DILG and LGUs to reclaim all public roads being used for private ends.
The road clearing operations were suspended in March in line with efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19.
MANILA, Philippines – The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) on Wednesday warned the public and local government units of individuals allegedly posing as DILG senior officials and offering to provide emergency relief aid in exchange for money.
DILG spokesperson, Undersecretary Jonathan Malaya issued the warning following reports from the department’s regional and field offices and LGUs on receiving calls or messages from people pretending to be DILG officials supposedly arranging for COVID-19 or emergency assistance.
“Pinapayuhan po natin ang ating mga LGUs at ang publiko na mag-ingat sa mga walang hiyang mandurugas na sindikato na nagpapakilalang taga DILG at nangingikil ng pera kapalit ng umano’y ayuda,” Malaya said in a statement.
“Kahit po ang inyong lingkod ay ilang beses ng ginamit ang pangalan para makapanloko. Kailanman ay hindi tayo nanghihingi ng pera sa kahit sinong Mayor, Vice Mayor, o kapitan kapalit ng serbisyo publiko na binibigay ng DILG,” he added.
Malaya cited the report of Tuburan, Cebu Mayor Danilo Diamante who received repeated calls from someone who introduced himself as a DILG undersecretary.
Malaya said the caller asked Diamante for money supposedly to cover for the shipping of 1,500 cavans of rice to be given as assistance to his town. The caller also allegedly instructed the mayor to pin a certain SB member for alleged involvement in illegal drugs, which the latter vehemently denied.
The DILG official said the Philippine National Police-Crime Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG) has been alerted about the matter.
He also urged LGUs and the public to be wary and to verify first with the DILG if they happen to be contacted by a person claiming to be connected to the department.
“Kung sinuman sa inyo ang makatanggap ng tawag o texts sa mga taong nagpakilalang ako o sinuman sa mga DILG top officials, magsumbong o makipag-ugnayan po kayo kaagad sa pinakamalapit na police station para mahuli at maparusahan ang mga impostor na ito,” he said.
Malaya clarified that the DILG routes official communications to its regional and field offices and all LGUs via official channels and not through mere texts or calls.
MANILA, Philippines – The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) on Tuesday directed all local government units (LGU) and police commanders to make sure that all private and public cemeteries, memorial parks, and columbariums are closed during the Undas period.
In a statement, DILG Secretary Eduardo Año reminded local authorities to close cemeteries from October 29 to November 4 to prevent any form of mass gathering amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, as previously ordered by President Rodrigo Duterte.
“September pa lang po nagbigay na ng kautusan ang Pangulo. We expect all LGUs to cooperate by ensuring that cemeteries within their localities are closed. Ito’y para walang mass gathering ngayong panahon ng pandemya,” Año said.
He also mandated all police chiefs across the country to make sure that health and safety protocols are strictly enforced as people begin to flock to cemeteries for the observation of Undas ahead of the closure period.
“The local police commanders and the mayors by now should have discussed the rules that would be implemented per locality but all these local rules that would be crafted should conform to the guidelines set by the IATF (Inter-Agency Task Force),” he said.
The number of visitors in cemeteries, memorial parks, and columbariums shall also be limited to only 30 percent of the venue’s capacity, with all those entering required to wear face masks and face shields and observe physical distancing.
Año also said that PNP assistance desks must be set up with regular foot patrol to ensure that IATF regulations on the number of people are followed.
The DILG chief said Undas this year will be different from the usual observance as he urged the public for their consideration and patience since the health crisis is not yet over.
“During the pandemic, we are asking for the people’s cooperation by not going to the cemeteries, staying at home from October 29 to November 4, 2020, and visiting their departed relatives days before or weeks after the closure,” he said.
“Maaari naman pong makadalaw sa mga sementeryo ang ating mga kababayan kahit anong edad bago o matapos ang itinakda at ipinagbabawal na mga araw. Ito naman po ay para rin sa kabutihan ng nakararami,” he added.
