The National Prosecution Service warmly welcomes the promotional and original appointments of one hundred twenty (120) prosecutors by President Benigno S. Aquino III. Today, the appointment papers of the said prosecutors were received by the Department of Justice, 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.
The NPS has maintained consistently that the appointment of prosecutors is critical to the administration's commitment to strengthen the prosecution service.
As we expect these appointments to ease and redistribute the heavy workload of our current prosecutorial force, the NPS eagerly anticipates the release of the other appointments of prosecutors, to achieve the DOJ's Zero Backlog Policy, aimed at the expeditious resolution of cases.
