The session was scheduled for 10:00 am, but started an hour late because the judges received a visit from Pastor Evelio Reyes.
After hours of deliberation, the judges decided to nominate a special committee of five judges for this task, said Danilo Izaguirre, spokesman for the CSJ. The committee is composed of Jorge Alberto Rivera, who will preside; Rosa de Lourdes Paz, Jacobo Antonio Calix, Carlos David Calix and Oscar Fernando Chinchilla.
These senior judges will be responsible for assessing the request of Congress and write a draft opinion to be offered for consideration by all of the judges of the CSJ. This report will be submitted next Wednesday to the judges for approval, and will then be forwarded to the National Congress.
