Thirty-one new prosecutors have been appointed to the Department of Justice (DOJ), Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra announced.
Guevarra said these new prosecutors have been assigned to various posts of the DOJ’s National Prosecution Service (NPS) in the country.
The Secretary said they have already taken their oaths of office last September 17 before President Rodrigo Duterte.
“More to follow,” he assured.
Previously, Guevarra expressed the need of the DOJ for around half a thousand prosecutors nationwide.
“In fairness, slowly in batches naglalabas sila ng appointments,” he had said.
