Credentials Committee Chairman Jorge Iván Arrocha said today that he will begin processing five complaints against Supreme Court Justice José Ayú Prado Monday and accused PRD Deputy Zulay Rodríguez of delaying the processes.

Arrocha called Rodríguez "irresponsible" for not meeting a Friday deadline for producing a report on the cases, which were assigned to her in April. 

"The congresswoman is irresponsible, she has had five reports on the magistrate and now she is asking to handle two new complaints, which are essentially the same," Arrocha said.

Rodríguez was assigned to assess the complaints submitted by Juvenile Court Judge Juan Domingo Ibarra against Ayú Prado for ordering an investigation into his affairs. Ibarra accused Ayú Prado of various charges including violating the duties of a public servant and abuse of authority.

Between 2015 and this year, Ibarra submitted at least five complaints against Ayú Prado related to this case. The committee has yet to rule on the complaints because Rodríguez has not taken action on them.

He gave her a deadline of Friday to issue a report, a deadline she missed.

Ayú Prado faces new charges over illegal surveillance and travel expenses by the judiciary. Rodríguez has asked to handle these complaints, but Arrocha said that it is unlikely they will be assigned to her. 

Rodríguez said on Monday she will go to the Office of Administration to submit a request for consultation about the legality of Arrocha's decision not to assign the new complaints to her so she could issue a final decision to the committee.

She also accused Arrocha and Committee Secretary Katleen Levy, who are both members of the Panameñista party, of delaying the process by refusing to give her copies of the complaints.

Levy said she provided the copies in June 2015.
