Yesterday the National Judicial Council of Transition (CJT) dismissed the alleged irregularities in the formation of the National Court of Justice (CNJ). Such findings were pointed out during the international oversight observation in the Ecuadorian judicial system reform.
After 17 days to avoid a reaction to the pronouncement made by such instance, the CJT reported to the Citizen Participation Council (CPC), which was explained during a press conference where they stated that the 44 recommendations were duly fulfilled.
However, Paulo Rodriguez and Tania Arias, from CJT, gave no explanation of how four of the current judges of the National Court of Justice got high scores in a contest that proved to be “flawed“, as revealed in the report of 132 pages of the oversight.
While Tania Arias said “to the Judicial Council, the National Court of Justice is legitimate elected under the Constitution (…) To the Judicial Council this is a case closed,” she said.
