Period for NAPOLCOM to decide appeals

Section 23, Rule IV of National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) Memorandum Circular No. 91-002 and Section 3, Rule III of NAPOLCOM Memorandum Circular No. 92-006 substantially provide the same rule:
Sec. 3. Period Within Which to Decide Appealed Cases; Finality of RAB/NAB Decisions. — The NAPOLCOM appellate board concerned shall decide the appealed cases within sixty (60) days from receipt of the entire records of the case from the PNP summary dismissal authority. However, failure of the NAPOLCOM Regional Appellate Board (RAB) to act on the appeal within said period renders the decision final and executory without prejudice to the filing of an appeal by the respondent-appellant with the Secretary of the Department of the Interior and Local Government. The decision rendered by the NAPOLCOM National Appellate Board (NAB) disposing an appealed case shall be final and executory unless a timely Motion for Reconsideration is filed within ten (10) days from receipt thereof, in which case, it shall become final and executory upon receipt by the respondent-appellant of the resolution of the aforesaid board denying, modifying or affirming the decision.
