The Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday (July 29) instructed all courts to temporarily stop issuing orders to have convicted persons taken to prisons of the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor).

In a circular, Court Administrator Jose Midas Marquez ordered that “the issuance by the courts of commitment orders from the BJMP (Bureau of Jail Management and Penology) jail units to the BuCor is hereby suspended, effective today until August 31 2020.”

“All convicted PDLs (persons deprived of liberty) who should have otherwise been committed to the BuCor shall in the meantime remain and be committed in the BJMP jail units,” he added.

Marquez disclosed he gave to directive in response to the request of BuCor Director General Gerald Bantag.

The court administrator noted that Bantag wrote to him last July 22 asking to temporarily suspend until August 31 the issuance of commitment orders to have persons detained BJMP facilities transferred to BuCor prisons.

The court administrator said Bantag made the request “to prevent the further contamination of Covid-19 among PDL and to minimize the movement of PDL from BJMP to the Bureau of Corrections.”
