Alcantar optimistic on judicial complex plan

By NITZ ARANCON, Correspondent .

IT’S been four years since a fire destroyed the Hall of Justice on Hayes Street but until now, the promise of building a judicial complex that would house all the courts and prosecution offices here remains to be an idea.

Regional Executive Judge Dennis Alcantar however remains optimistic even as he announced that he and the new officers of the local chapter of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) would be working to speed up the construction of the judicial complex in the city.

If plans don’t miscarry, the judicial complex would be built in Sitio Taguanao, Barangay Indahag, near the still-to-be-finished convention center.

The plan is to build a new home for the Court of Appeals-Mindanao station, the Regional Trial Court, the Municipal Trial Circuit Court, and prosecution offices.

Alcantar said the Supreme Court is still waiting for a budget for the planned project.

He said this during the IBP induction on Monday night. The judge administered the oath of the new set of officers of the IBP-Misamis Oriental.

The new IBP officers are lawyers Carlo Antonio Almirante, president; Katrina Mordeno, vice president; Teresa Blanco, secretary; Cesar Bagaipo, treasurer; Anna Cabanlas Caros, auditor; and Rex Raagas, PRO.

Sworn in as IBP directors were lawyers Kit Laurel Llego, Jairo Ladera, Kevin Jay Celestino, Johanne Emmanuel Agustin, Karol Chaim Bartolome,  and Eddie Cuaresma,  immediate past president.

Almirante, the new IBP chapter president, said he would continue what Cuaresma, his predecessor, started.  

Almirante and the other IBP officers were elected during the IBP assembly at Grand Caprice in Feb. 23. Their office terms would be  until 2021.
