The section was operationalized starting with Tuesday, currently consisting of one chief-prosecutor, one deputy-chief and three implementation prosecutors.

“About 1,400 cases will be taken over. It is an important volume of cases. It will start its activity today, we will have a press statement,” the general prosecutor told journalists on Tuesday.
