New denunciations include President Varela

President Varela

Three new denunciations have landed on the table of the National Assembly Credential Committee,  including one targeting President Juan Carlos Varela.

They are added  to 12 other complaints already resting  with the committee  against magistrates of the Supreme Court of and Vice President, Isabel de Saint Malo de Alvarado

Denunciations against Supreme Court Judges are handled by the Credentials Committee while the Court deals with complaints against deputies,  an arrangement largely believed to deliver a quid quo pro or mutual back-scratching exercise.

The committee, which itself the focus of civil society as it is the center of a political crisis over its makeup, and is facing confrontation with the government administration plans to start evaluating the complaints on Tuesday next week, likely generating more controversy.
