On Tuesday afternoon, Rolando González, legislator from the National Liberation Party (PLN) held the decision of the Constitutional Chamber to accept the complaint filed against the President of the Republic, Luis Guillermo Solís, and Foreign Minister Manuel González, for their refusal to deliver reports from the embassy of Costa Rica in Brazil.
I celebrate the fact that the Court wants to delve into the subject and process it according to law. I’m not telling the Court what to do, only to solve this and set a precedent. For me, the Court’s decision will clarify the constitutionality of the proceedings,”
said Rolando González.
The legislator asked the Chancellor the reports on September 29th, during an interpellation in the legislative branch, but the Minister only gave him 7 out of 19 reports. Later, on October 3rd, the Government issued a decree declaring the other 12 documents as top secret.
They allegedly contain information that would have led a government delegation headed by Solís to withdraw from the last General Assembly of the United Nations (UN), on September 20th, when Brazilian President Michael Temer, was going to give his speech.
