Cortizo sanctions law allowing probes of top officials


Posted 28/11/2021

President Laurentino Cortizo sanctioned Law No. 258 on November 26, which returns to the Supreme Court of Justice (CSJ) the power to administratively investigate officials, such as ministers and the Comptroller General of the Republic.

The new norm was published on November 26 in the Official Gazette

After its promulgation, the CSJ may investigate common crimes or misdemeanors committed by the attorneys general of the Nation and Administration, the members of the National Assembly, and the magistrates of the Electoral Tribunal.
