The person who gave statements in this regard was Díaz's lawyer, Lizeth Garrido, who assured that due process and the right to defense would have been affected of the suspended parliamentarian.

“We presented the arguments that the members of the Ethics Commission who had participated in the events should not have voted on ”, he assured when detailing that there were two Ethics parliamentarians among the nine who were with Díaz on the day of the events.

“The Ethics Commission never asked for the names of the nine congressmen and in yesterday's session it was never asked. We even consider that due process and the right to defense have been violated […] I know the names but I am not authorized to do so (provide them)”, replied the lawyer.
