DOJ urged to file Dengvaxia cases in one court
The Department of Justice (DoJ) has been asked to file Dengvaxia cases in one court if only to expedite the proceedings.
“There is a precedent to filing it in only one court possibly in Manila. We have no problems as the PAO has offices everywhere but if it is filed in different courts, it will unduly delay the case. Otherwise, we may be all gone without us seeing a resolution of these cases in courts,” Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) chief Persida Rueda-Acosta said during a press briefing.
PAO has been assisting families of victims who were inoculated with anti-dengue vaccine Dengvaxia.
The vaccine was being blamed to sickness and even deaths mostly school children who received Dengavaxia.
