to_dave007 posted a topic in Living In The PhilippinesIn 1978 President Marcos established a system of barangay hearings (more formally called Lupong Tagapayapa, or Lupon) to amicably settle disputes at the barangay level. This was done by Presidential Decree #1508, and the text of that decree appears here: http://www.chanrobles.com/presidentialdecrees/presidentialdecreeno1508.html#.XYKIvHduIrw Does anyone here have FIRST HAND experience with these hearings. Willing to share some stories? I am well aware that many foreigners will say these hearings are "rigged".. or that decisions will always go against foreigners.. or that decisions must be bought to be successful and so on. I want to try at least to dig deeper than that.
