MANILA, Philippines — Manila Mayor Isko Moreno yesterday ordered the installation of closed-circuit television (CCTV) system in every courtroom in the city as additional protection for judges.

Moreno said the CCTVs would serve as a deterrent against crimes.

Surveillance cameras will help police respond immediately to any untoward incidents, he said.

Moreno has ordered the deployment of additional policemen and guards to tighten security at the entrances and exits of the city hall.

The local government will also allocate funding for ambulances, according to the mayor.

Moreno said he supports the plan to put up a new Justice Building in Manila.

On Nov. 11, Judge Ma. Teresa Abadilla was shot dead by her clerk of court following an argument inside her own chamber at the Manila Regional Trial Court Branch 45.
