SUBJECT: TRANSFER OF NATIONAL PRISONERS TO THE BUREAU OF CORRECTIONS IN MUNTINLUPA CITY.

Reports have been received by this Office that notwithstanding the issuance of Circular No. 4-92-A dated 20 April 1992, some judges still do not issue mittimuses for the transfer of national prisoners to the New Bilibid Prison of the Bureau of Corrections in Muntinlupa City. Transfer of national prisoners could not be effected without the necessary court mittimus or committment order to national prisons.cralaw

For this purpose, prisoners at or confined in provincial, city and municipal jails and sentenced by lower courts to prison terms exceeding three (3) years, whether or not they have appealed, are considered national prisoners. *

In view thereof, and in order to decongest provincial, city and municipal jails, all trial judges concerned are hereby directed to issue the corresponding mittimuses or committment orders of national prisoners immediately after their conviction so that they may be remitted or transferred to the New Bilibid Prison of the Bureau of Corrections in Muntinlupa City.cralaw
