Gils Carbó: 'I've never been called by the Executive branch'
National prosecutor-general Alejandra Gils Carbó affirmed she has "never" been "called by the Executive branch" with requests over cases and assured "the Judicial branch does not purge because it has protection of corporations."
"In my years as prosecutor and prosecutor-general, I've never received calls from the Executive branch," the official affirmed during a radio interview, and added that the political power has "historicaly formed part" of the Judicial decisions.
The official who took office last year to replace Esteban Righi, considered it is "remarkable when the political and economic power" have an impact in the Judicial and affirmed "is an issue it must be debated."
Besides, Gils Carbó demonstrated her support to the idea of judges paying the Income tax and also evaluated that "there should be a time limit for the magistrates, mainly in the Supreme Court."
