“The activity is very vital to ensure that the implementers of the law especially those who are handling court related and CICL cases should be knowledgeable on pertinent laws for children,” Barrero stressed.

For her part, Department of Justice (DOJ)-10 Assistant City Prosecutor Lawyer Ruby Malanog discussed the salient features of RA 9344 or the Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act of 2006 and stressed that the best interest of the child is the primary consideration of the said act.

“This interest means the totality of the circumstances most congenial to survival, protection and feelings of security of the child and most encouraging to the child’s physical, psychological and emotional development,” Malanog said.

The JJWC is a policy making, coordinating and monitoring body tasked to implement RA 10630. Conducting dialogues and other advocacy campaigns are among the committee’s ways to also strengthen collaborative efforts of the different stakeholders for the paramount interest of poor CICL.(RTP/PIA10)
