The fiscal general or chief prosecutor said that a groundswell of support from employees in the judiciary has caused him to reconsider his resignation.
The fiscal general, Jorge Chavarría Guzmán, sent a letter to the magistrates of the Corte Suprema de Justicia. The Poder Judicial released the text in which Chavarría said he again was submitting his name for re-election.
The fiscal general noted that he is continuing in the job until Oct. 15 regardless.
He did not give specific reasons about why he would not seek the post when he sent a letter saying that, and he did not give specific reasons about why he reconsidered.
The Poder Judicial said that the number of employees who back Chavarría and submitted their signatures to that effect were 436 by Wednesday afternoon.
