As recalled, the president of the Council of Ministers, Aníbal Torres, questioned the National Board of Justice this Friday for not investigating the Nation's prosecutor in the face of events he claimed they are “public denunciations” against her.

“Faced with these public denunciations of what happened in the Prosecutor's Office of the Nation, what is the JNJ doing? Nothing nothing. And in exchange for what do we pay them those succulent salaries that they receive?”, he said this Friday at an event with authorities in Tarapoto.

The prime minister reiterated his criticism against the JNJ after stating that this entity not only appoints prosecutors and judges, but also evaluates them.

“It controls their functional exercise and if they incur serious violations, of course they should investigate immediately”, Torres Vásquez pointed out.
