Monitoring

Expanded Supreme Court Appointments Watch (SCAW), Local monitoring of judicial and quasi-judicial bodies, SC justices’ judicial philosophy monitoring, matrixing and reporting, Judicial web channel and Philippine Judicial Portal, and Monitoring of Special Cases

Expanded SC

Appointments Watch

Expanded Supreme Court Appointments Watch (SCAW). Building on the gains of past experiences in advocating for a more transparent and accountable nomination and appointment process for the Supreme Court, the Project will expand the monitoring to the appointments to the lower courts (Court of Appeals, Regional Trial Courts, Municipal Trial Courts) by developing a mechanism that will enable local CSOs to contribute to the appointments process for justices and trial court judges in their respective areas. The national CSO network that will be established shall form the backbone of a nationwide network of CSOs that will be mobilized for monitoring appointments to the judiciary.

Judicial &

Quasi Judicial Bodies

Local monitoring of judicial and quasi-judicial bodies. Through the active participation of the members of the national CSO network, the Project will enable the formulation and implementation of a national monitoring system that will have the capacity to cover both general concerns about the performance of judicial/quasi-judicial bodies, and specific aspects such as appointments and judiciary budget, and monitoring of selected cases.

 

In three years, the Project is expected to produce concrete and credible data that will serve as relevant inputs to discussion of changes in the justice system.

Judicial Philosophy

Database

SC justices’ judicial philosophy monitoring, matrixing and reporting. The Project will facilitate the creation of a panel of legal experts (composed of retired justices, professors, and practitioners renowned for their independence and integrity) who will initially determine the different judicial philosophies by which the incumbent justices may be measured, as well as design the parameters and methodology for classification.

 

This component includes training of legal researchers, academics, and lawyers, and translating findings of Judicial Philosophies into a database which will be accessible to the public via the Philippine Judicial Portal website.

Judicial Web Channel

Judicial web channel and Philippine Judicial Portal. The Project will support the development of a ‘Philippine Judicial Portal’ website and web channel that will enable public viewing of judicial proceedings of selected important cases via webcast and livestream, promoting transparency and integrity.

 

In addition to providing a venue for open discussion and analysis and for educating the general public on judicial processes, it allows CSOs to engage in justice sector monitoring, and to network, interact, share information, and move advocacies forward. It also serves as an online resource center that hosts the ‘Judicial Philosophy Database.’

Special Cases

Monitoring of Special Cases. In addition to serving as a mechanism for monitoring the general performance of judicial/quasi-judicial agencies, the established national CSO network will also undertake a more focused monitoring of specific types of cases. The selected special cases can include environmental cases (in relation to the implementation of the special rules for environmental cases); cases involving extrajudicial killings (EJKs), enforced disappearances, and torture; and high-profile cases involving corruption (plunder cases).
