After being vacant for three months, a junior associate of the law firm of Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea was appointed undersecretary at the Department of Justice (DOJ).
Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said Malacanang has approved the appointment of lawyer Jon Paulo Salvahan as DOJ undersecretary. He filled the post vacated by former DOJ spokesman and Undersecretary Markk Perete who resigned last Oct. 1.
“We’ll review the distribution of areas of responsibility ASAP (as soon as possible),” Guevarra assured.
Salvahan was a junior partner at Medialdea, Bella, and Suarez law firm. It was the same law firm of Guevarra when it was known as the Medialdea, Ata, Bello, Guevarra and Suarez law firm.
