'Justice on wheels' in the Philippines

Eight custom-made buses with judges onboard seek to deliver justice to victims of overburdened court system.

    There are currently tens of thousands of under-trial prisoners still waiting to see a judge, and the Supreme Court has now introduced a radical new way to dispense justice.

    Eight custom-made buses are travelling the country with judges trying cases from inside the vehicles.
