Chilean president Ricardo Lagos and Spanish judge Baltasar Garzon will be observers in the judicial reform that is being held in Ecuador, said today Tania Arias, a member of the Judicial Council of Transition (CJT for its Spanish acronym).
“We are coordinating the operational aspects, on what dates and how often they would have to come to the country, their fees,” said Arias.
The creation of an Ecuadorian permanent support team for the observers is also being studding. Arias said it should be a “mixed” group, composed of foreigners and local people.
“We have signed no contract (with Lagos and Garzón). What we already have with them is their commitment, but it has not been formalized,” he said.
