Colombia: Chief Prosecutor Viviane Morales Removed from Office

The State Council, a regulatory institution of the Supreme Court, declared the election of Chief Prosecutor Viviane Morales invalid, arguing that in December 2010 the Court's internal rules were violated, causing irregularities in the voting, as La silla Vacía [es] explained. The news became a local trending topic on Twitter with the hashtags and phrases #ChaoFiscal [es], Consejo de Estado [es] y #ApoyoAVivianeMorales [es].
