People vs Vera; G.R. No. L-45685; 16 Nov 1937; 65 SCRA 56

FACTS:
While awaiting new trial, Cu Unjeng appealed for probation alleging that he is innocent of the crime he was convicted. Judge Vera upon the request of private respondent allowed the petition to be set for hearing.

ISSUE(S):
Whether or not there is undue delegation of power.

HELD:
YES. There is undue delegation of power because there is no set standard provided by Congress on new provincial boards must act in carrying out a system of probation. The provincial boards of the various provinces are to determine for themselves, whether the probation law shall apply to their provinces or not.
