The Chamber observed that, by “citing” him to make a statement at the Prosecutor office as “imputed”, the Attorney General of the Republic erred in a serious and inexcusable manner, incurring in abuse of power and overreaching of powers, injuring the rights of the Chief Of Government of the Capital District, against due process, defense, presumption of innocence, the natural judge, effective judicial protection, by subverting the procedure of merit judgment enshrined in the Constitution and in the Organic Law of the Supreme Court of Justice.

As a consequence of the injunction, the “summons” issued in a communication issued by the Public Prosecutor’s Office dated June 28, 2017, as well as any action by the Attorney General of the Republic or by officials acting under its Dependency or hierarchy, who intend to initiate an investigation to the Chief of Government of the Capital District, citizen Antonio José Benavides Torres, without regard to the merits preliminary ruling procedure in compliance with the constitutional and legal norms referred to.
