In theory, yes, but everyday ordinary citizens can see how we are not all equal before the “application of the law.” It is enough to look closely at the paradigmatic case of the country La Arboleda, in which, at the request of the judicial presentation of a single neighbor, the wife of a chambermaid, in record time, Justice determined the intervention of the country, expelling the elected authorities democratically in assembly by the majority of the neighbors. 250 families were sentenced to an incompetent, not to say fraudulent administration, which led us, in two years, to exponential debt. Neighbors do not remain immobile, hundreds of signatures and presentations add up to the file, but for us, without connections in the judiciary, there are no answers. In conclusion, for the Justice, a connected neighbor is worth more than an entire community of ordinary citizens, who all they claim is their right to self-administer. For some, justice works like a highway and for ordinary citizens, like a high mountain path.
