SC declares holiday on December 23 in courts
The Office of the Court Administrator came up with a circular on Monday declaring December 23 a holiday in the judiciary.
In OCA No. 225-2019, a skeletal force was however required in all first and second level courts to attend to and act on urgent matters.
The circular added that all judges and court personnel who will work on December 23 shall be entitled to one day compensatory time off.
The circular was signed by Court Administrator Jose Midas Marquez. #
