Chief Justice Lucas P. Bersamin receives from General Santos City Mayor Ronel C. Rivera the symbolic key to the two-storey Archive Building at the Hall of Justice, Lagao, General Santos City on April 29, 2019. Also in photo is Court Administrator Jose Midas P. Marquez and Deputy Court Administrator Leo T. Madrazo (partly hidden). The building, donated by the General Santos City local government, will be the storage area for court records, old files, and papers. Chief Justice Bersamin says that the building will also ensure that courthouses in the city “will have more space for people who would not compete with records and papers in the corridors of the courthouse. Even better yet, this building will enable the Judiciary to eliminate the eyesore and fire hazards that the extra records and old files have posed through the years.“ (Caption by Jay B.
