The recently sworn Attorney General of the Republic, Miriam Germán Brito, said she has aspirations for justice without privileges and without mistreatment, in addition to appealing to transparency.
Regarding the alleged cases of corruption pending in the courts, Judge Germán Brito said that upon arrival at the Attorney General’s Office, the first thing she will do is carry out an inventory.
“I am a person who is not going to dirt my soul with grudges and miserable feelings,” she indicated when questioned about the situation between her and the outgoing attorney Jean Alain Rodríguez.
While when questioned by the media, the also newly appointed Deputy Attorney, Yeni Berenice Reynoso, did not offer any comments.
