DBP Backs Public Transport Sector Recovery

DBP is working closely with the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) in finding financial solutions to aid the country's transportation sector due to the difficulties presented by the pandemic.

“The EU Delegation reaffirms its commitment to strengthening the justice sector in the country as it remains a key element in our cooperation portfolio”, said Mr.Thomas Wiersing, Charged’ Affaires of the EU Delegation.

Wiersing noted that the European Union, through the GOJUST Programme, provides valuable support for the development and implementation of the National Justice Information System (NJIS) providing a strong automated information management system.

The DOJ and the DILG signed an agreement to implement data sharing for the single carpeta system, making it possible to generate, share and analyse data on criminal cases. The single carpeta system, which forms part of the National Justice Information System (NJIS), unifies jail records where corrections agencies like BuCor and BJMP will refer to only one portal.

Furthermore, the DOJ, DILG and their respective agencies, in an Agreement with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), will have the latter develop and host the NJIS
information exchange platform.

The two Agreements contribute to the strengthening of case and data information management between various law enforcement and corrections agencies. “We are pleased that the EU is able to help develop a National Justice Information System which could , in time, integrate other automated systems and institutional databases such as the eCourts system, prosecution case management system and other databases in a coordinated manner”, he said. “This will be a valuable contribution to the automation efforts of the government.”

Due to the momentum generated by the activities and initiatives supported by the GOJUST Programme, the goal of strengthening cooperation, communication and coordination among the various justice sector agencies are further realized.
