According to lawyer Otto Rolando Gómez García, the FECI ceased to be valid from the moment that the International Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala (CICIG) stopped operating in the country, as its creation was due to an agreement between the CICIG and the Public Ministry (MP), 13 years ago.
“It was created (the FECI) by clandestine apparatuses and since this stormy prosecutor’s office began, it has dedicated itself to persecuting any person it is convenient for them to destroy,” says Gómez, on his Twitter account.
The lawyer points out that the unconstitutionality arises from the moment that the current head of the MP, Consuelo Porras, created the Agreement 59-2019 to guarantee the continuity of the FECI in the country, from September 4, 2019.
According to him, said entity has operated illegally, which is why he was assisted by Leonel Enrique Castañeda Tejada to present the unconstitutionality.
