The Chancellor said the central theme of the ministerial meeting on Tuesday, which is already confirmed, will be the review of the earlier resolution which creates the System of Administration of Disciplinary Justice, which created the differences between Mulino and the former police chief Gustavo Perez. Last Friday, March 9, Mulino resigned "irrevocably" from his post as the Minister of Public Security, because he considered the actions of the Director of National Police Gustavo Perez to be "unacceptable, illegal and unconstitutional." A day earlier, Perez had rejected the draft law intended to create a single office to administer internal affairs of all of the security agencies.
In this regard, Henriquez insisted that the meeting of the Cabinet Council tomorrow there will be a clearer picture of how things will be after these events. Yesterday, the President made no announcement regarding the appointment of a replacement for the head of Public Safety. (Prensa)
Editor's Comment: There are ever growing rumblings that seem to indicate Mulino might end up withdrawing his "irrevocable" letter of resignation, staying in the job. Gustavo Perez won't be staying at his former position as the Director of the National Police, however. Yesterday Martinelli announced that he would be moved to the Security Council. So now he won't be in charge of thousands of armed police officers, or managing a multi million dollars budget, but he will be in charge of those cell tap devices that can listen to your telephone calls. There's an argument going on right now over whether this change for Perez is a punishment or a promotion.
