TSJ annulled ruling acquitting officers indicted for April 11 events

The Constitutional Court of the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) Friday declared null and void a ruling issued by the TSJ Plenary Court on August 14th, 2002 that acquitted four military officers indicted for leading a coup d'etat on April 11th, 2002.
The Constitutional Court, responding to a request filed by Attorney General Isaías Rodríguez, also revoked a discontinuance of proceedings on the charges of civil rebellion presented on May 2002 against Major General Efraín Vásquez Velasco (retired), Brigadier General Pedro Pereira Olivares (retired), Vice Admiral Héctor Daniel Pérez, and Rear Admiral Daniel Comiso Urdaneta (retired).

"This ruling has been issued after confirming the outrageous violation of the constitutional principles and rights consecrated in the Constitution," said judge Luisa Estela Morales, president of the Constitutional Court.
