0 72

Work in courts located in Manila is suspended on the day of the Traslacion.

This was announced by Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno ordering work suspension in the Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, and trial courts in Manila on Jan. 9.

“Anticipating difficulty of travel to and from the courts located in the City of Manila due to the annual procession of the Black Nazarene, the Chief Justice has suspended work in the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeals, and the Trial Courts of the First and Second Level in the City of Manila on the 9th of January 2018,” the Supreme Court advisory said.

Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada earlier suspended classes in all levels and work in local government for the Black Nazarene procession, which draws millions of devotees to the city.

He stressed that the suspension was for “public order, safety, convenience, and to reduce traffic congestion.”

Suspension of work in national government offices located in Manila, as well as work in private offices, are left to the discretion of their respective management.
