MANILA, Philippines — Malacañang has approved the appointment of 50 prosecutors at the Department of Justice to speed up the resolution of complaints against government officials, DOJ Secretary Menardo Guevarra reported yesterday.

On Jan. 19, Guevarra announced the appointment of 24 DOJ prosecutors. The DOJ on Saturday released the second list containing the names of 26 more prosecutors.

This is the first and second batch of appointments of prosecutors for the year.
