In a Senate probe on Tuesday on the issue of drug-recycling police officers or “ninja cops,” Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said that the case is currently undergoing automatic review, adding that he has already instructed state prosecutors to expedite its resolution.

“All records are with us so I hope within a month’s time, a resolution will be issued by the Department of Justice one way or another,” Guevarra said.
