Caloocan opens Hall of Justice

By Gigi Munoz-David | Apr. 13, 2013 at 12:01am
Caloocan Rep. Oscar Malapitan on Friday led the inauguration of the P22-million North Caloocan City Hall of Justice for turnover to the Supreme Court this month.

The NCCHJ will house four MTC branches while the present five first-level courts remain at the Justice Hall on 10th Avenue.

In 2007, Republic 9374 was signed creating four MTC branches.

Judges from the regional and metropolitan trial courts, prosecutors, public assistance officials and city councilors attended the inaugural keynoted by SC administrator Midas Marquez.

“The creation of four additional branches is in line with the Supreme Court’s reform program of bringing our courts closer to our people,” he said.

“With the organization of the four new courts, the incoming cases will now be distributed among the nine branches in proportion that will enable the four new courts to catch up with the load of the five earlier courts. In no time, we hope to see all nine branches of MTCs of Caloocan City with manageable case loads of 500 and below.”

Marquez lauded Malapitan recognizing that the “administration of justice is an essential part of good governance and is a shared responsibility of all those in public office whether elected or appointed…It has been said where there is no justice there is no real development.”
