“Congress is to blame for high pensions”
The heated debate surrounding the ‘exorbitant’ pensions enjoyed by some Government officials will begin today but there will be one noticeable absence: the State Council. Its president, Gustavo Gómez, talked about the issue and concluded that judges will only apply what Congress has determined.
“The value of a pension is not decided by judges but by Congress. High pensions have been created by politicians and the administrations of the past 20 years,” Gómez said, adding that the public has been misled in the whole debate.
