Colombia’s Supreme Court of Justice magistrates on Tuesday indicated that all three candidates for Prosecutor General are completely obsolete.
With this argument, the Court reaffirmed that the fruitlessness of the current shortlisted trio is not due to fault on the part of one candidate in particular, namely the contoversial Juan Angel Palacio, but a culmination of all three nominated by the President of the Republic, Alvaro Uribe.
The Supreme Court is hoping to change all three candidates as opposed to solely replacing the former magistrate of the State Council, Palacio, reported news station Caracol on Wednesday.
Uribe already had said he would replace Palacio, who is implicated in a bribery scandal.
At the end of the review meeting, the Court now awaits the impending decision about the candidates which will be made by the President.
