Corzo breaks silence, says Government is wrong
One week after scandal broke with Congress’ approval of the judicial reform, Senate President Juan Manuel Corzo weighed in on the issue and said the Government is wrong to call extraordinary sessions in an effort to sink the reform. As president of the Senate, Corzo explained, he could have kept the reform from being enacted.
The senator insists it was Justice Minister, Juan Carlos Esguerra, who encouraged the congressmen to approve the reform despite the “monkey wrenches” which had indeed already been identified at the time. As far as the so-called “monkey wrenches”, Corzo said he wasn’t behind any of the proposals that emerged from any of the committees and that he was actually the one who requested the Justice Minister’s presence in that meeting.
