The members of the Special Independent Prosecutor Panel (PFEI by its Spanish initials) held an extraordinary meeting early Wednesday morning and decided to terminate the contractual relationship between attorney Miguel Colón Ortiz and the PFEI because Cólon Ortiz was making faces during a session.


An orderly and corresponding transition process is being established to ensure the continuity of processes engaged in by other prosecutors, as well as the notification of the courts in this regard, according to the PFEI.


The former judges said that all conduct of the prosecutors assigned to cases will always be bound by the canons of ethics that govern the legal profession, as well as the decorum, rectitude and integrity demanded by the defense of the interests of citizens in the fight against government corruption.
