Appointed Secretary of Justice justifies request for reports to be returned to her

The designated interim secretary of Justice Wandymar Burgos Vargas, indicated tonight that she requested that reports be given to her "to find out what they were about."

Their expressions arise hours after he left in light of the fact that, hours before being fired by Governor Wanda Vázquez Garced, former Secretary of Justice Dennise Longo Quiñones had recommended the appointment of an independent special prosecutor (FEI) against the president herself and several figures close to her, according to sources with direct knowledge of the situation.

Those referrals were requested back today by Burgos Vargas, according to the persons consulted, with the purpose of “re-evaluating them.”

In written expressions, the official maintained that “during the Today, July 6, 2020, at a time when I was in the process of an orderly transition in the Auxiliary Secretariat for Civil Affairs, by email I was notified of a he informed us that they had been signed last Friday and the delivery had been coordinated with the OPFEI (Office of the Panel on the Independent Special Prosecutor). "

" In addition, I am told that the agent was on his way to the OPFEI office for delivery. Given this, I requested that the agent be instructed to deliver to the Secretary's Office. The above is in response to an interest in knowing what the reports were about and especially when said delivery was being made on the date I am serving as Secretary of Justice "he said.

Burgos Vargas added that it was never notified of the report, for which he appointed the prosecutor Inés del C. Carrau Martínez to assist in the transition process of the investigative and criminal area. This will also act as undersecretary of Justice.

"That it be made absolutely clear to the entire People of Puerto Rico, that all investigations that have merit will be carried out to the last consequences, against any person." [19659010]
