Enhanced Justice on Wheels Program of the Supreme Court

posted Sep 5, 2015, 2:01 AM by Barangay Tortugas
The Philippine Judicial Academy in connection with the Enhanced Justice on Wheels of the Supreme Court aims to bring justice closer to the people or to provide people in remote areas adequate and fast access to justice.

It is a mobile court system which acts as a means to provide fast and free resolution of conflicts through conciliation, mediation or adjudication. The released inmates/detainees can be rehabilitated and have a second chance at living a normal life again.

Alongside it is the program to update each Barangay on how to effectively implement Barangay Justice with well known judges who are members of the Justice on Wheels Movement headed by our Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno.

To our delight, we were briefed on important frequently applied RAs and Laws when dealing with barangay justice system such as: a. RA 9262, b. The correct way to apply BPO, TPO, at PPO; c. Juvenile Justice Law, CICL, Mediation and Conciliation process and the skills to use them effectively. Salamat po sa inyong lahat!
