The National Prosecution Service warmly welcomes the promotional and original appointments of seventy-five (75) prosecutors by President Benigno S. Aquino III. Today, the appointment papers of the said prosecutors were received by the Department, to be transmitted to each of the appointees. It should be underscored that the President appointed in almost all of the offices of the National Prosecution Service.
This wave of appointments to key prosecutorial positions around the country is a promising sign of the administration's commitment to strengthen the prosecution service. With the fair, effective and efficient administration of justice at stake, we expect the appointments to ease and redistribute the heavy workload of our current prosecutorial force.
We eagerly anticipate the release of the other appointments of prosecutors, to enable the NPS to achieve the Department's Zero Backlog Policy, aimed at the expeditious resolution of cases.
