President Benigno S. Aquino III will visit this province on Thursday (April 14) to keynote the 23rd National Convention of the Prosecutors League of the Philippines (PLP) that is being held at the KCC Convention Center here from April 13 to 15, 2011.
Joining the President for the event will be Justice Secretary Leila De Lima, Public Works Secretary Rogelio Singson, Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala, Transportation Secretary Jose De Jesus and Science and Technology Secretary Mario Montejo.
Upon his arrival, the President and his party will be welcomed by local officials led by General Santos City Mayor Darlene Antonino-Custodio, Mindanao Development Authority chairperson Luwalhati Antonino, and Prosecutors League of the Philippines president and chairman Jonathan Lledo.
Members of the PLP hold annual conventions to update its members on the latest in criminal investigation and prosecution.
This year’s convention will center discussions on, among others, Republic Act 10071 or the Prosecution Service Act of 2010.
The Act created the National Prosecution Service (NPS) which will be responsible for the preliminary investigation and prosecution of all cases involving violations of the country’s laws.
The PLP is a non-stock, non-sectarian and non-political association of active and former public prosecutors and prosecuting attorneys in the National Prosecution Service of the Department of Justice. (PNA)
