The government of Alberto Fernndez at this time maintains a wide open action front regarding possible modifications in the composition and in the actions of the Justice. While trying to move forward with the new law on the Public Prosecutor’s Office and the judicial reform, which are still waiting to be approved in the Chamber of Deputies, the creation of a project is in process that will surely bring as much or more controversy than the two mentioned above.
It is about the creation of an “intermediate court” that would be called “arbitrary”, which roughly seeks to limit the actions of the Supreme Court of Justice in causes of corruption.
Specifically, the new court would have among its powers the possibility of analyzing procedural resources in corruption cases, a task that currently corresponds to the Supreme Court.
Officers from the wing closest to the President They confirmed that the project “is being put together” and they do not rule out that it is ready to be presented on the agenda of the extraordinary sessions.
It was one of the recommendations that the Advisory Council, made up of the Mendoza judge Omar Palermo, gave to Alberto Fernndez just over a month ago.
In case of moving forward and finally being approved, the conformation of the new tribunal cut in corruption cases, just at a time when the highest court was criticized by the vice president, Cristina Fernndez de Kirchner, and when a request was presented signed by officials and militants to grant a “pardon or amnesty” to former vice president Amado Boudou .
The “positive” argument that the Government uses is that, with this court, the task of the Court will be considerably lightened since it will not have to deal with a large part of the 23,000 cases that come to it per year.
In this sense, they understand that “the Court should take the lead in these reforms”, but criticize that so far “it has not given the slightest signal.”
