CATAMARCA-. (By Juan Carlos Andrada) The Director of Provincial Penitentiary Service (PPS), Daniel Colonel, was the subject of a lapidary report by the Justice. Evidently, the head of the governor’s official Raul Jalil is focused almost exclusively on recovering the money invested in a financial institution of ill fame to the point that Coronel was intimidated by the Criminal Justice due to the damage caused by the carelessness, negligence, negligence of the Commissioner to the operation of the Miraflores Prison in Catamarca. Today, the second part of that judicial warning.
In the document signed by Dr. Alicia Elizabeth Cabanillas and Dr. Claudia Avilez, Criminal Enforcement Judge-First Appointment and Criminal Enforcement Judge-Second Appointment, respectively, “it is made known to the Facility Management (in charge of the Commissioner Colonel) that the observations made turn the deprivation of liberty into an illegitimate aggravation of the conditions of detention” and summons the Jalil official to correct the shortcomings in a few days.
