By Greg Tataro, Jr.

TANDAG CITY, Surigao del Sur, Mar. 5 (PIA) – The Office of the Clerk of Court under the Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 40 here is still accepting applicants for court-annexed mediators for Surigao del Sur.

As stated, applicants must possess a Bachelor’s Degree, at least 30 years of age, of good moral character, and willing to learn new skills and to render public service aside from being proficient in both oral and written communication in English and Filipino.

Daryl Oso, RTC Branch 40-Office of the Clerk of Court information officer, announced that the deadline for the submission of application was set on or before March 8, 2018, adding that interview would follow at the Hall of Justice (HOJ) at around 10:00 a.m. on the same day.  However, Oso stressed that orientation would first be conducted an hour before that.
In a separate but detailed announcement issued through the same court under Executive Judge Rufo Naragas, applicants were earlier advised to submit their application letter and other pertinent papers addressed to:  Atty. Brenda Jay Angeles-Mendoza, Chief of Office for PMC, Philippine Mediation Center Office, 5th Floor, SC-CA Multipurpose Building, Padre Faura Street, Ermita, City of Manila. 

It can be recalled that an “Orientation Conference with Stakeholders on Court-Annexed Mediation” led by Atty. Lilian Baribal-Co was held at Villa Maria Luisa (VML) Hotel in Tandag City on February 8, 2018.  The event was well attended according to Oso.

“Court-Annexed Mediation is a voluntary process conducted under the auspices of the court by referring the parties to the Philippine Mediation Center (PMC) Unit for the settlement of their dispute, assisted by a Mediator accredited by the Supreme Court,” it was learned.
