The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights accepted the lawsuit filed by former President Rafael Ángel Calderón for the alleged violation of “at least eleven fundamental rights” during the legal process of the Caja-Fischel case.
The former president announced the resolution through his Facebook site. The government of Costa Rica will have three months to respond to the accusations.
I waited six years and two months for this resolution. The Inter-American Court only accepts 15% of the lawsuits it receives and the fact that it accepted mine is a good sign,”
said the former president, indicating that he received the notification on Wednesday.
The ex-leader of the Christian Social Unity Party and who now supports the Republican party took the issue to the IACHR after the Supreme Court of Justice had ratified the sentence to three years in prison for a crime of embezzlement in the case of Caja-Fishel in May 2011. His goal is to clear his name.
The Inter-American Commission, in responding to my complaint, recognizes that there is a basis to carry out the case, which fills me with satisfaction and hope that the truth will come out, justice will be served, and history will be written with veracity,”
wrote a happy Calderón in his social networks.
