CIRCULAR NO. 4-92-A.
CIRCULAR NO. 4-92-A
[Amending Circular No. 4-92]

TO:  ALL JUDGES OF THE REGIONAL TRIAL COURTS, SHARI’A DISTRICT COURTS, METROPOLITAN TRIAL COURTS, MUNICIPAL TRIAL COURTS IN CITIES, MUNICIPAL TRIAL COURTS, MUNICIPAL CIRCUIT TRIAL COURTS AND SHARI’A CIRCUIT TRIAL COURTS

SUBJECT: TRANSFER OF NATIONAL PRISONERS TO THE BUREAU OF CORRECTIONS IN MUNTINLUPA, METRO MANILA.

It has come to the attention of the Supreme Court that some judges refuse to issue mittimuses for the transfer of prisoners sentenced to imprisonment for more than three [3] years to the Bureau of Corrections in Muntinlupa, Metro Manila, for the reason that their cases are on appeal.cralaw

For this purpose, prisoners detained at provincial 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.cralaw

    [P. D. 29]. (Note: Under Presidential Decree No. 29, prisoners sentenced to not more than one [1] year are classified as municipal prisoners; those sentenced to one [1] year and one [1] day to not more than three [3] years are classified as city/provincial prisoners; those sentenced for three [3] years and one [1] day and above are classified as national prisoners).
In order to decongest provincial, city and municipal jails and to effect better control and supervision over national prisoners, all trial judges concerned are hereby directed to issue the corresponding mittimuses or commitment orders of national prisoners immediately after their conviction so that they may be remitted or transferred to the Bureau of Corrections in Muntinlupa, Metro Manila.
