In response, the high court eventually issued a modified JAR, in

which public prosecutors are allowed to use sworn statements that
had been used during preliminary investigation or inquest in place of
new judicial affidavits.
Private lawyers, however, were not covered by the modified JAR and
were still required to prepare judicial affidavits for their clients.
In its latest resolution, the SC said it will later decide whether to
extend the modification for another year or start requiring public
prosecutors to observe the JAR starting January 1, 2014.
In the same resolution, the high court also instructed the NPS, which
is under the Department of Justice, as well as the Prosecutors'
League of the Philippines, to work closely with the SC SubCommittee on the Revision of the Rules of Criminal Procedure over
the JAR.
The NPS and the PLP should help “in developing comprehensive and
truly meaningful changes that will minimize the problems of delay in
the criminal justice system,” the SC said.
The SC sub-committee is headed by Associate Justice Diosdado
Peralta. — Mark Merueñas/KBK, GMA News
