Top Prosecutor digs a deeper hole
Santo Domingo.- Deputy and National Magistrate Council member Josefa Castillo, on Wed. said her and that of senator JosĂ© Igancio Paliza abandoning of the National Palace press room, before Justice minister Jean RodrĂguez concluded his turn, was due to what he was saying wasnâ€™t what was agreed at the meeting of the Council.
She said it was agreed that Rodriguez would apologize and announce his recusal from any evaluation of Supreme Court justice Miriam GermĂˇn, for his questions which implied a lack of ethics.
The first to critique the Justice Minister was Senate president, Reinaldo Pared, who in a tweet admitted outrage with RodrĂguez reneging on the agreement that he wouldnâ€™t comment against German.
Pared said Rodriquez’s reiteration was a “personal matter” and didn’t involve the Council’s members.
“What happened to us was unexpected, we withdrew because he wasnâ€™t adhering to what we agreed,” Castillo said on El Sol de la MaĂ±ana radio.
