When the offense is committed outside the territorial jurisdiction of these courts, a party may immediately petition the Supreme Court for change of venue if it is desired that these cases be tried in these courts.  

The following guidelines shall be observed:chanroblesvirtuallawlibrary  

    [1] These cases shall undergo mandatory continous trial but shall be terminated within sixty (60) days from initial trial. Judgment thereon shall be rendered within thirty (30) days from the time the case is submitted for decision, unless a shorter period is otherwise provided by law.  

    No postponement or continuance shall be allowed except for clearly meritorious reasons. The filing of motions or pleadings for dilatory purposes shall constitute direct contempt and shall be accordingly penalized.  

    [2] All cases covered by this Order where trial has already commenced, shall continue to be heard by the branches to which these were originally assigned.  

    [3] The Executive Judges concerned shall exclude the designated Special Criminal Courts from the raffle of other civil and criminal cases whenever in their judgment the caseload of these courts shall prevent them from conducting daily trials of the special cases herein specified.  

    The branches thus designated shall continue to perform the functions of Special Criminal Courts even after the retirement, transfer, or detail of the incumbent judges herein named. Their successors, whether permanent or temporary, shall act as Presiding Judges of these special courts unless the Court directs otherwise.  

This Order amends and supersedes Administrative Order No. 173-94 dated 18 September 1994.  

This Order shall take effect immediately.  

3 May 1996.
