Violation of rights
In the text, signed by ministers Juan Cristobal Mera and Jenny Kniga, along with lawyer Jorge Norambouen, the Court questioned the representativeness of the Office of the Ombudsman to take over the defense of students in the institution.

"It is preferable to initiate this action without legitimizing it and without agreeing to any authority on the face, alone, from the" student community "- without clearly knowing what this concept means – against a medium that did nothing else but seriously informs about a situation that is in severe violation of the right of high school girls to receive education without violent turbulence ".
These are "girls who, according to the background of the given protection resource, receive political indoctrination and, nevertheless, the one who advocates political violence", adds the verdict.
Meanwhile, the Ombudsman's Office pointed out The third prime minister that the institution will analyze this decision in order to determine the way forward after the judicial determination.
