Director proposes changes to judicial investigating arm

The director of the Judicial Investigating Organization presented lawmakers Monday with a new draft of the agency’s organic law. The director, Francisco Segura, said among other things, that his employees should have at least a university degree.

He also wants to create regional directors and an internal disciplinary tribunal.

The presentation was to the Comisión Permanente de Asuntos Jurídicos.

The proposal includes the creation of an office of plans and operation that would work closely with the Ministerio Público, the prosecutors.

Any additional expense as a result of these changes could be offset by taking a piece of the goods that are confiscated in drug cases, according to the plan.
