Rosario Robles will remain in prison as part of the judicial process he faces for the crime of improper exercise of the civil service, determined on Tuesday by Judge Felipe de Jesús Delgadillo Padierna.
At the hearing ordered by Judge Ricardo Paredes to review the prison as a precautionary measure against Robles, Judge Delgadillo Padierna stated that there are grounds for believing that there is a risk of escape and that the accused may «escape the justice.»
Delgadillo Padierna said Robles’ defense went to the process by «lying repeatedly.» This is because at the August 13 hearing, Robles’ defense assured that she was in Costa Rica, on her vacation, but at another time in the hearing she assured that she was taking a course.
So the judge accused a contradiction and «with that fallacious effect they affected his defendant and came to lie expressly.»
Robles’ lawyer, Julio Hernández, in an altered tone, urged the judge to take note of his accusation, but he refused to make that true. «You can’t come to me and say liar, » he said.
Another of the defense’s lawyers even assured that the judge should excuse himself from chairing the hearing whenever he stopped conducting himself with respect and legality. «You have ceased to be impartial, and you have shown your encouragement of encouragement in considering this defense and Rosario Robles as your enemy.»
Rosario Robles took the floor and assured that this «this is a political vendetta and an act of injustice of his lordship.»
He insisted that he has not lied about his domicile, but «given his family and ethical relationships, you had to excuse yourself from the beginning», this in reference to the judge being the nephew of Dolores Padierna and René Bejarano, political opponents of Robles.
At 16:41 the judge ended the hearing and confirmed with his legal arguments that there were elements for Rosario Robles to be subtracted from justice and, therefore, not to face the judicial process.
