A QUEZON City-based publishing company has donated some P40,000 worth of law books to the Naval Forces Western Mindanao(Navforwem) Law Library, an official announced Thursday.
The donation of more than 50 law books were handed over on Tuesday by Girlie Jacala, sales manager of Central Books Supply, Incorporated, and were received by Captain Federico Magpantay, Jr., on behalf of Rear Admiral Rene Medina, Naval Forces Western Mindanao commander.
Magpantay, a staff of the Judge Advocate of Navforwem, said the books form part of the command’s collection of legal references compiled in its Law Library that is intended for use of Philippine Navy organic personnel in the prosecution of cases filed by the command.
He said these legal references are significant in the performance of the command’s mission under the prosecution aspect since references are now readily available at hand and accessible to future use in cases when a legal matter take place.
He said the establishment of the Navforwem Law library is in line with the efforts of the command to enhance its capabilities not only in the pursuit of those belonging to lawless terrorist groups but also against other criminal offenders.
