PDP Chapter 6: Pursuing Fair and Swift Administration of Justice

By 2022, the country’s civil, criminal, commercial, and administrative justice systems will be enhanced. Significant reforms will be undertaken to ensure fair and swift administration of justice. Consequently, the country’s ranking in the World Governance Indicator (WGI) rule of law will improve to be in the upper half; the World Justice Project (WJP) fundamental rights and criminal justice indicator to the upper 25 percentile; and WJP civil justice indicator to the upper 20 percentile.

Enhancing systems and rationalizing interdependence among justice sector institutions or actors are essential developmental approaches to provide the timely delivery of justice. There will be harmonized efforts and seamless coordination among the different actors involved in civil, criminal, commercial, and administrative justice. Strategies to implement these are as follows:

 

To enhance civil, criminal, commercial, and administrative justice systems
  • Institutionalize the justice Sector Coordinating Council
  • Strengthen economic justice
  • Deliver justice real-time

 

To improve sector efficiency and accountability
  • Deliver fair and equal justice
  • Enhance accountability through an engaged citizenry
  • Enhance sector efficiency
