Asia Foundation Helps Address Bottlenecks of Criminal Cases in Philippines Supreme Court
September 11, 2018 — The Manila Bulletin reports on the Philippines Supreme Court’s progress in processing and resolving criminal cases more efficiently since the implementation of the Revised Guidelines of Continuous Trial in Criminal Cases. The revised guidelines, which were put into practice in September of last year, aims to streamline procedure and create stricter requirements that improve the performance of processing criminal cases.
The Revised Guidelines on Continuous Trial in Criminal Cases took effect on September 1, 2017 after it was piloted in 54 trial courts in Metro Manila.
The program was implemented with support from The Asia Foundation and the American Bar Association, with funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
“We are successful because of the technical and funding support from our development partners that helped us in this initiative,” [Supreme Court Associate Justice Diosdado] Peralta said.
