PLO conducts jail visitation free legal assistance

Provincial Legal Office
September 23, 2016 
               
    The Provincial Legal Office (PLO) through the leadership of Governor Ramil L. Hernandez, conducted jail visitation on September 21, 2016 from 8:00 AM until 12:00 NN at the Laguna Provincial Jail (LPJ), Sta. Cruz, Laguna.  This activity is a collaborative effort led by the Provincial Attorney, Atty. Rodel T. Paderayon, together with Atty. Reynante Vibal  (Legal Office), Atty. Roy Arriola (RD, Siniloan), and lawyers from Pubic Attorney’s Offices – Atty. Artemis Q. Badando, Atty. Ezerh M. Alejandro, Atty. Xavier Elbert Gordula, Atty. Edgardo Marilim of IBP, Laguna, and Laguna Provincial Jail Officers through OIC-Provincial Warden Raymond M. Tantoco. 
 
    The free legal aid extended to LPJ inmates aimed to answer the problem of jail congestion and to improve the administration of justice, as well as to protect the rights of the accused for speedy trial, particularly, those imprisoned for a period equal to or longer than the penalty imposed for the offenses of which they were charged. 
 
    Most of the interviewed inmates were charged for Violations of RA 9165 (Dangerous Drugs Act) Sections 5, 11 & 12, attempted homicide, homicide, parricide, statutory rape, carnapping, illegal possession of firearms, slight physical injury and such other cases.  Their concerns are being evaluated for appropriate action.
