The Remaining Members Of The CNM Made Their Positions Available


The four remaining members of the National Council of the Magistracy (CNM) announced that they have placed their posts at the disposal of the Congress of the Republic.

Orlando Velásquez, president of the CNM; Elsa Aragón; Hebert Marcelo and Baltazar Morales indicated through a statement that they have not committed any criminal acts so they are not willing to resign. Nevertheless, they will do whatever the Congress considers appropriate.

“The advisory council members of the CNM express before the country that we do not cling to the office that was conferred by constitutional mandate and we do not renounce because none of us has committed an irregular act that merits our vacancy, removal or resignation”, says the document, according to Gestión.

However, given the current situation that seriously affects the justice system of Peru and the CNM, it is that they decide to make their posts available.

They also expressed their support and the broad willingness to the proposals related to the reform of the judicial system of Peru.

According to Velásquez, the suspension of Judge César Hinostroza Pariachi, and the vacancy procedure of the directors Iván Noguera, have received the appropriate sanctions corresponding to corruption cases that involve judges and CNM members.

He also said that it is necessary to apologize to the country for not having seen in time the problems that had been taking place “at their side” until the audios appeared, according to information from Gestión.
