Supreme Court justices must leave now, famous attorney says
Santo Domingo.- The famous attorney Vinicio Castillo Semán yesterday said the Supreme Court’s (SCJ) current justices must be replaced urgently because in his view, its members no longer have the conditions to punish delinquents and organized crime with the full weight of the law.
He said the courts has essentially been concerned with protecting the criminals the proceedoings, without realizing that the victims are the ones jeopardized, and society with them. “That’s the reason the judges concentrate in the analysis of the procedures, leaving the actual facts in a second place.”
Interviewed on Digital 15, Castillo added that the judges resort to the “guaranteeing” Procedural Code Penal, letting thugs go unpunished and consequently, stimulating crime and drug trafficking in the country.
