Ceila Peñalba takes office as electoral prosecutor

Temas:

Substitute Electora Prosecutor Ceila Peñalba was sworn in as the acting prosecutor, a month after she was appointed by President Juan Carlos Varela. 

Peñalba made it clear that she will take the reins of the office, as Varela has ordered, and the office will not sink.

She is standing in for Electoral Prosecutor Eduardo Peñaloza, who is on vacation until April. Peñaloza has also faced strong criticism over his handling on investigations into the use of state resources during the 2014 campaign. he faces two criminal complaints in the matter.

José Félix González, who had been designated as the head of the office by Peñaloza, will return to his post as regional director of the agency in Chiriquí. he pledged, however, to challenge the appointment before the Supreme Court and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.
