Legislator Epsy Campbell, from the Citizen Action Party (PAC), denounced on Wednesday that the Supreme Court of Justice (CSJ) is cloning permits for 302 job positions.
Campbell explained that the CSJ is creating 302 vacancies from January 17th, through a mechanism consisting of permits with pay, but using the same codes. Of the total seats, 232 are for judges and 73 administrative. She pointed out that this will cost the State more than ¢8 billion.
The legislator indicated that this was decided by the Superior Council of the Judiciary on December 7th and therefore demanded that they provide the details of the permits with salary.
The presiding magistrate, Carlos Chinchilla, participated that day, although the one who usually participates is the vice-president magistrate (…) They illegally approved the cloning of the seats in the middle of a fiscal crisis,”
said Campbell in an intervention in the Legislative Plenary.
She added that Chinchilla incurs an illegal act by only doing administrative tasks.
I urge the President of the Court to suspend the execution of that agreement and to render clear accounts and give explanations to the people,”
