President Benigno Aquino III has appointed 72 new prosecutors that will fill up the 20-percent vacancy in the National Prosecution Service.

In a statement Friday, the Department of Justice, of which the NPS is under, said the new prosecutors would be assigned in Regions IV, VI, VII and X.

“This is a timely development and a positive progress in the National Prosecution Service. The Department needs warm bodies to effectively discharge its mandate amidst the increase in cases filed with the department,” said Justice Secretary Leila de Lima.

She reminded the newly assigned prosecutors to abide by the Code of Conduct for Prosecutors.

“We need men and women of high integrity to man the frontlines of the department,” de Lima said.

“I am confident yhat we can achieve our vision for an expeditious administration of justice through honest and dedicated personnel,” she added. —Mark Merueñas/KBK, GMA News
