Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista is scheduled to turn over to the Supreme Court (SC) a custom-built bus fitted with facilities where court proceedings can be held.

“I look forward to seeing more mobile courts to help facilitate the resolution of simple cases in the city,” Mayor Bautista said.

This was announced by ” Bistek” even as the city government is building a new Hall of Justice to give the judiciary a decent and conducive workplace .

The new building, which will be known as the QC Justice Hall Annex, forms part of the P500-million investment for the judiciary under the administration of Mayor Bautista. Its construction is aimed at providing a more spacious area for trial courts.

Bautista said the city’s development program for the judiciary also highlights the continuing effort of the QC government to strengthen its relationship with the pillars of the criminal justice system.

The Justice Hall Annex will be built adjacent to the six-storey Justice Cecilia Muñoz-Palma building in the QC Hall compound, which houses the prosecution service, offices of parole and probation, public attorneys and the Integrated Bar of the Philippines – QC Chapter.

Apart from the construction of a new justice building, the city’s investments for the judiciary will also include the renovation of the old Hall of Justice.

According to City Administrator Aldrin Cuña, once completed, the trifecta of buildings shall make up the QC Justice Complex.
