There is now hope for the more than 40 policemen from Negros Island Region, accused of receiving protection money from a drug syndicate, that the investigations on the allegations against them will be fast-tracked.
Chief Supt. Edmund Gonzales, who assumed yesterday as acting regional police director of Negros Island Region, said he will lobby with Camp Crame for the fast-tracking of the probe against them, to clear those innocent, and punish the guilty ones.
