Report No. 239
10. Strengthening Prosecution Machinery.
As already pointed out, the prosecution machinery is in shambles. There is need to empower the Directorate of Prosecution with independent powers for effectively supervising the working off PPs/APPs. The recruitment/appointment process should be transparent and objective based on merit and experience. Their conditions of service need to be improved considerably. There must be intensive training and refresher courses and periodical review meetings. It is of utmost importance that vacancies of PPs/APPs are filled up promptly. There is every need to create additional posts as well.
