Judge Under Investigation For Not Following Protocol of Duties

The High Judicial Council sent the Court a complaint inspection for the director of the OIJ, Jorge Rojas, against Judge Aguilar Carlos Andres Arrieta for supposedly refusing to serve the removal of a body.

This is the death of a woman nine months pregnant in February that happened when a vehicle lost control and hit the house where the woman who was about to give birth was sleeping. This accident occurred in Puriscal.

The complaint states that without any justification, the judge decided to delegate the lifting of the body to judicial workers, contrary to that he ignored the Criminal Procedure Code which mandates the presence of a judge when a violent death occurs.

Criminal analyst, Ewald Acuña, said the complaint is relevant because the judge failed to fulfill his duties as a judge.
