The Constitutional Chamber requested a report by the Department of Legal Medicine of the Judicial Investigation Agency (OIJ) due to the retention of bodies caused by the strike of the workers of the Judicial Power.
After an amparo appeal filed by the Ombudsman’s Office, directors and heads of the department have 48 hours to inform the magistrates about the bodies that have not been delivered to their relatives due to the strike that began on Wednesday last week.
Since the beginning of last week, various workers of the Judiciary, including forensic doctors and related employees, have held a strike that has paralyzed the autopsy and delivery service. It is estimated that the remains of 15 people are stranded in the face of such inactivity.
Employees of the Judiciary, including forensic experts, are on a strike due to the fact that legislators refused to use a bill provided by the sector as a contribution to the reform of the Pension Regime of the Judiciary.
In addition to the services rendered by the Morgue, they also failed to hear trials and receive complaints for minor offenses.
