Justice Department to open phone lines for complaints
The Judicial Branch Council (CPJ) has opened phone lines and an email address for the public to voice their complaints, report crime, or to follow cases in the courts. From Monday to Friday, from 7:30am until 4:30pm, people can send their inquiries concerning unjustified delays in court cases and other suggestions, using 809 533-3191, extensions 2063, 2303 and 2237. There is also the direct line, 809 487-0484 as well as the email address firstname.lastname@example.org
In a press release, Supreme Court Chief Justice and chairman of the Judicial Branch Council, Mariano German Mejia states that the service is created following “the transparency with which this government branch carries out its functions and its mission to offer quality and timely services as established by the Constitution, the laws, the Ethical Behavior Code and the System of Institutional Integrity.” German adds that the Judicial Branch works hard on a daily basis to provide a more efficient, transparent and correct labor and creating more flexible ways in which the people can use the tools provided by the justice system.
Polls show that the judiciary is one of the most discredited government services, with several notable cases giving strong credence to suspicions that corruption and politically influenced decisions prevail.
