According to CICIG, the operator would have incurred justice prevarication, denial of justice, abuse of authority, suppression and alteration of civil status, usurpation of authority, failure to report, malicious delay, trafficking and abuse against children and adolescents.
The statement sent by that institution states that the petition includes similar actions in seven child protection processes.
CICIG argues that the judge deprived the children of their identity, did not respect the basic rules on domestic and international adoption and passed resolutions declaring the adoptability without complying with the requirements.
