President Ivan Duque, from Barranquilla, urged the Disciplinary Commission to review the rulings that have prevented the application of the Guarantee Law and the sentence of aerial spraying with glyphosate.
Without mentioning it and giving the judges a slap on the wrist, the president specifically referred to the order given by a robed to the national government to refrain from applying the Law of Guarantees, contained in the 2022 Budget. The statements were offered during the installation of the first meeting of the National Commission for Judicial Discipline, which was held yesterday afternoon in the capital of Atlántico.
In its intervention, Duque indicated that the judge’s decision represents an “unprecedented outrage” against the rule of law, for which he urged the Commission to review those decisions.
“Limits should be set in the competence of the judges in this matter. The capacity of the Executive cannot be altered ”, said the president, who also stated:“ It is not understood how rulings appear that seek to prevent compliance with a sanctioned law. Clearly they can set up the demands coming from the articles and contents of the norms that must have their course through the system of guardianship action ”.
