Sebastián López Peña: We are different from Comodoro Py
On the other hand, who heads the government of the Justice of Córdoba expressed that the judges must “give explanations for their rulings” since the idea that they speak for their resolutions no longer runs. In addition, he opined that there are differences in each of the judicial powers of each jurisdiction and that the causes that are most mediated end up influencing the general idea of Justice.
