Seeking to contribute to the country in the fight against corruption, the Supreme Court of Justice (CSJ), with the support of the United States Government, through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), inaugurated the re-adaptation, equipment and strengthening of the Probity Section, in an event led by President of the CSJ, Dr. José Óscar Armando Pineda Navas, and United States Ambassador, Mrs. Jean Elizabeth Manes.
The re-adaptation consisted in the disassembly of part of the previous buildings of Probidad, Access to Information, Computer and Logistics, and the electrical installations for the computer equipment. With funds from the United States Government, the internal structure of the office was renovated to be more effective and efficient.
The Ambassador stressed, “This morning we celebrated a real advance for El Salvador, with the re-launch of the Probity Unit of the Supreme Court of Justice. This is not only a legislative priority, but it is also an important step towards restoring the confidence of Salvadoran citizens in their government.”
The main benefit of the readjustment of Probidad is to have facilities that provide public officials with the necessary tools to do their job well; they can now privately receive statements from witnesses and consult with public servants who file their affidavits.
