Parlassen President: To remove parliamentary immunity, it is necessary to issue a decision from the Supreme Council of Justice
The President of the Central American Parliament (Parlacine), Fannie Carolina Salinas Fernandez, indicated that in order to lift the parliamentary immunity granted by this entity, a decision of the Supreme Court of Justice is necessary first.
Salinas Fernandez, who visited the Senate of the Republic on Thursday, was questioned about how to proceed with the lifting of immunity, after the Broad Front party reported that they would submit a request to move forward with the removal of this privilege from the former President of the Republic, Danilo Medina.
“This case must first go through the High Court of Justice and later come to Parlacen. At the moment we do not have any decision, there is no order issued by any High Court,” he commented.
In this sense, he reiterated that the internal procedure is necessary first, within each country and then the request must reach Parlacen.
During his visit to the Senate of the Republic, Salinas Fernández met with the president of this legislature, Eduardo Estrella, with whom he discussed the possibility of the deputies of Barlassin introducing legislative initiatives.
He indicated that a possible constitutional reform is being stimulated that would enable parliamentarians to put forward initiatives for this purpose.
“Several issues we deal with. The question of relations and now potential constitutional reform is being catalyzed because it is very important for Parlassen that the Dominican deputies in Parlasen get the initiative of the law, and that is one of the reasons we are here.”
On the other hand, he highlighted the state’s vaccination campaign, describing it as “successful”.
“I congratulate the Dominican Republic on the success of the vaccination campaign. We have an analysis of how the vaccination plan has been developed in each of the countries, and the Dominican Republic is one of the most vaccinated populations.”
