Ecuadorian Justice Court Created

Ecuadorian Justice Court Created

Quito, Dec 17 (Prensa Latina) The National Justice Court (CNJ) of Ecuador is finally set up Wednesday after almost two months with no head, to hand over positions to judges and elect officials.

Judge Jose Vicente Troya, responsible for electing the 20 leaders, stated Tuesday that the CNJ will have the first meeting to swear in members. Troya stressed the gathering will establish rules to appoint presidents of the State body, substituting the previous Justice Supreme Court (CSJ).

The possession ceremony will take place at 10:00 local time (15:00 UTC) in that building in northern Quito.

The new judges will be temporarily in their posts until the countries appoint presidents in 2009, with the application of procedures established in the current Constitution since October.

The resumption of functions from the top Ecuadorian justice entity takes place after almost two months of inactivity of that organization, due to the denial of most of judges from the former CSJ to continue labors in the CNJ.

That situation provoked the Constitutional Court makes a statement, providing vacant seats of that administrative justice body were filled by former judges, and presidents of provincial entities.
