Collection of Legal Research Fee imposed by Presidential Decree No. 200 Amending Republic Act No. 3870

It has been brought to my attention that many of die agencies charged with collecting the additional legal research fee imposed by Presidential Decree No. 200 amending Republic Act No. 3870 are not complying with the mandate of the law.  The law requires tha collection of the additional amount of one percent (1%) of the filing fee imposed but in no case lower than five pesos, in the case of the appellate courts and the additional amount of one percent (1%) of the filing fee imposed, but in no case lower than two pesos, in the case ol all other courts, including all administrative or special courts, agencies or tribunals exercising quasi-judicial functions.

To reinforce and expand the activities adopted in response to growing law-related needs of the country, Executive Order No. 714 dated 1 August 1981l implementing Presidential Decree No. 711, directs that the additional research fees collected shall upon collection be automatically released to the University of the Philippines and immediately deposited in a separate account in any authorized Government depository bank in the name of the National Treasurer as ex-officio Treasurer of U.P. under the U. P. Chapter.

WHEREFORE, you are hereby enjoined to require, and to see to it that your official and employees charged with collection of the aforementioned fees remit the same without delay pursuant to the foregoing paragraphs.

For strict compliance and immediate implementation.

Done in the City of Manila,, this 16th day of December, in the year of Our Lord, nineteen hundred and eighty-one.

President of the Philippines
