MANILA, Philippines- Inanunsyo ni Chief Justice Alexander Gesmundo na ang pagsasagawa ng court proceedings sa pamamagitan ng video conferencing ay magpapatuloy kahit matapos na ang COVID-19 pandemic alinsunod sa pagsisikap na gawing “technology-driven”ang hudikatura.

Inanunsyo ito ng Chief Justice sa Philippine Bar Association’s (PBA) 130th Foundation Day at Law Day Celebration nitong Biyernes.

“In line with our efforts towards a technology-driven Judiciary, we have decided to allow the conduct of all court proceedings through videoconferencing even after the end of the pandemic,” sabi ni Gesmundo.

“The SC Committee on Virtual Hearings and Electronic Testimony is now working on the rules,” patuloy niya.

Hinikayat din ni Gesmundo ang PBA “to help lead the way” sa pagkakasa ng Supreme Court ng inobasyon sa buong hudikatura.

“In particular, I hope the PBA can lend its resources, expertise, and networks to raise awareness about the reforms we are pursuing,” aniya.

Hinikayat din niya ang PBA “to push for both the adoption of these reforms in the judiciary,” at ang “adaptation of your peers in the profession to innovations and technological advances.”

“I urge you to invest in the skills and resources needed to enable the shift that we envision,” giit ni Gesmundo.

“Together, we can usher in the new standard of justice in real-time — and in doing so, cultivate a wider, deeper, fuller adherence to the rule of law in our country,” aniya pa.

Inihayag ni Gesmundo na nag pagsasagawa ng virtual court proceedings ay kahanay ng Strategic Plan for Judicial Innovations 2022-2027 (SPJI) ng Korte Suprema, na ayon kay Gesmundo, “weaves together the many different ideas, aspirations, plans, and proposals of the Court En Banc for the pursuit of one overarching goal: The delivery of justice real time.”

Base pa kay Gesmundo, ang SPJI ay istratehiya na pinagagana ng Innovation Agenda na target rebyuhin ang administrative setup at operasyon sa ilang Judiciary offices at lumikha at magtatag ng information and communications technology infrastructure para sa Philippine Judiciary.

Tatlong resulta ang tinatarget: efficiency, innovation, at access, base sa apat na guiding principles; “timely and fair justice, transparent and accountable justice, equal and inclusive justice, and technologically adaptive management.” RNT/SA
