Critical Notes(4) on Janlokpal (Political Ombudsman) Scheme -Case study Philippine(1C)

No Independent Matching

In her reply to some of PCIJ’s queries, Assistant Ombudsman Evelyn A. Baliton says that the formula had been “approved and accepted” by the MCC. And yet in the Threshold Program’s final report, qualified judgment is rendered on how the Ombudsman actually performed despite its having surpassed the project’s set target.

While the agency may have met its indicator target, as defined in the project, the report noted that the databases and formula differ between the Ombudsman and the Sandiganbayan, even as independent matching of data by agencies like the Justice department has yet to be institutionalized.

Institutionalizing such data-matching is necessary, said the report, “for transparency purposes and to prevent the kind of confusion which occurred where there were, for example, differences in the conviction rate reported by the Ombudsman compared with the records and calculations of the Sandiganbayan.”

It acknowledged that while “the matter” – the use and interpretation of different formulas – was supposedly resolved in the project, “the controversy could have been avoided if uniformity of data standards and definitions were established between the Office of the Special Prosecutor and the records office of the Sandiganbayan.”

The report said that absent institutionalized data-matching and “without a very clear understanding of what is being ‘counted’ when one counts ‘cases,’ the data presented can be very misleading.”

Even tallies from the Ombudsman and the Sandiganbayan on just the number of cases filed per year differ. In her written reply to PCIJ’s queries, Baliton herself says in what seems to be a reference to conviction rates, “The Sandiganbayan uses a formula different from ours. For example, the Sandiganbayan includes in its computation cases (that) did not go into trial, like those archived or dismissed for lack of jurisdiction.”

Both the Sandiganbayan and the Ombudsman’s Office generate official summaries of selected statistics. Unlike the Ombudsman, however, the Sandiganbayan’s regular tallies do not include the conviction rate, although it has a count of cases filed, pending, and disposed of.
