In an interview with the Chairman of the Isabel Provincial Youth Forum IPYF Joe Faoso said though investigating corruption cases takes more time and resources, police investigations, generally should be concluded promptly.

He said put an end to matters that bother citizens.

Police said there are 75 cases currently in the hands of the corruption team but out of those 75 there are 10 active cases.

He said these cases are in various stages of progress and they are all being reviewed under the Police’s new triage system.
