NAPOLCOM accepts email filing of documents for PNP administrative cases and complaints
July 23, 2020
With the emergence of the new normal in the whole country, the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) releases additional guidelines on the procedural processes of police administrative cases and complaints.
The NAPOLCOM en banc chaired by Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary and NAPOLCOM Chairman Eduardo M. Año approved Memorandum Circular No. 2020-001, dated June 22, 2020, which prescribes the guidelines on the interruption of reglementary periods and suspension of certain proceedings in NAPOLCOM Memorandum Circular No. 2016-002 entitled “Revised Rules of Procedure before the Administrative Disciplinary Authorities and the Internal Affairs Service (IAS) of the Philippine National Police (PNP).”
NAPOLCOM Vice-Chairman and Executive Officer Atty. Rogelio T. Casurao said that the postponement of reglementary periods for actions in Summary Dismissal, Breach of Internal Discipline, Citizen’s Complaints and Appealed Cases for the period of March 17 until June 15, 2020 is due to the physical restrictions, mobility limitations and work suspensions in the Executive Branch. The interruption also included actions and submissions required from the Disciplinary Authorities and duly authorized officials.
Atty. Casurao clarified that the interruption should not be understood as termination of administrative proceedings against the uniformed members of the PNP. Administrative proceedings that has commenced and/or was concluded during the period of interruption shall remain valid and binding. Resumption of reglementary periods started on June 16, 2020.
“In order to adapt to the new normal and in addition to the existing modes of filing, the Commission shall accept filing through electronic mail (e-mail) of complaint, affidavit, counter-affidavit, pleading, motion, position paper or other communications in Summary Dismissal, Breach of Internal Discipline and Citizen’s Complaints (SBC) to ensure the continuity of proceedings and safety of clients,” Atty. Casurao said.
Hourly checking of the official e-mail address will be strictly implemented. Upon receipt of a new complaint, affidavit, counter-affidavit, pleading, motion, position paper or other communications in SBC, the Disciplinary Authority or its duly authorized official will acknowledge the receipt of the communication indicating the documents forming part of the communication and the number of pages.
For communication that requires certain contents, requirements or solemnities, the Disciplinary Authority or its duly authorized official shall inform the sender as to its conformity or non-conformity. If not conforming, a period of 72 hours will be given to the sender to supply the missing contents, requirements or solemnities.
All communications to be sent via e-mail must be in Portable Document Format (PDF), which also includes conversion to the required format of pieces of evidence for attachment, such as photos.
For pending cases or those for which a Formal Charge has already been issued against the respondent, the Disciplinary Authority shall inform the parties of these new guidelines and confirm if they intend to avail of said electronic mode of filing.
NAPOLCOM M.C. 2020-001 also provides for the suspension of personal appearance/attendance in all stages of proceedings in SBC. Instead, the Commission will utilize recorded videoconferencing or other similar modes of communication dispensing with physical face-to-face interaction. Transcription of recordings will then be saved in a compact disk (CD) or flash drive as part of the records of the case. If videoconferencing is not plausible, personal appearance shall be allowed as long as parties must adhere to the Minimum Public Health Standards set by the Department of Health (DOH).
The Commission also allowed the serving of Processes of SBC (notices, summons, subpoenas and other interlocutory orders or directives) through courier or e-mail, in addition to personal service or registered mail. Parties who intend to be served Processes of SBC via e-mail must submit a written request, under oath, to the Disciplinary Authority providing their official e-mail address. If they want to use the official e-mail address of their counsel, a copy of the counsel’s entry of appearance, engagement contract or retainer agreement must be attached.
As alternative, serving of processes via courier is also permitted with the understanding that the date of actual receipt thereof by the intended recipient shall be considered as the date of service.
“The Commission assures the public and our clients that all communications that would be transmitted through e-mail will be treated with utmost confidentiality as provided for under Section 4 of NAPOLCOM Memorandum Circular No. 2020-001,” Atty. Casurao said.
