In My Humble Opinion: 

Rosa Emilia claims that Leff (FBI Director of PR Branch) “talks a lot”, or “talks too much”. I do not see what it is “too much” that he said. His statement regarding the investigations and the pending prosecutions of the “dirty politicians”, regardless of who they are, or whom he meant, are entirely appropriate, and even gracious and legally and politically correct: he gives the advance warning that corruption will not be tolerated. 

Ms. Rodriguez-Velez may think that I talk too much too but I will utter just one word for her and for now, as a private citizen and a blogger: 

OUT!

Credibility crisis in the Federal Prosecutor’s Office

Reactions after verdict draw attention

The Federal Prosecutor’s Office in Puerto Rico is going through a precarious moment between allegations of fabrications of cases, “terror” given by the head of the office, Rosa Emilia Rodríguez Vélez, and several cases of work harassment.

The aforementioned scenarios also occur while discussing a possible replacement of Chief Rodriguez at a time when the Federal Bureau of Criminal Investigations (FBI) has also been evasive in answering questions about the work of Rodríguez Vélez for his employees.

The public discussion about Rodríguez Vélez’s performance intensified after Francisco Reyes Caparrós, a former employee of the Attorney General’s Office, won a lawsuit for labor harassment.

Rodríguez Vélez has tried to defend himself against the verdict in several ways, including accusing this means and the plaintiff. However, what represents a threat to her credibility as head of the United States Government in Puerto Rico is that a group of 12 people, constituted as a jury, simply believed the former employee more than her.

The predicament in which Rodríguez Vélez is located is the same as all the people that his office has criminally accused and who have been convicted: they can say whatever they want about their innocence but that does not erase that there was a unanimous verdict , who declares them guilty of crime.

In the case of the chief prosecutor the situation is worse, because in many criminal cases the defendant chooses not to sit down to give his version in the witnesses’ chair but, in the case of Reyes Caparrós, Rodríguez Vélez sat down, offered his version of the alleged labor harassment under oath, and the jury did not believe him, granting greater credibility to the plaintiff’s version, who also sat down to testify. It took barely an hour and a half for the jury to assess both testimonies and decide in favor of the former.

And what did the jury think?

According to what Reyes Caparrós explained in his version of the events, the jury believed that Rodríguez Vélez has a “reign of terror” in his office. “Either you do what I say, or do what I say … there or you submit or submit,” said the plaintiff who is now entitled, according to the verdict, compensation of up to $ 300,000.

After the verdict, the former employee, who must now return to work in the office as part of his legal victory, also said that the prosecutor orders investigations and initiates prosecutions for capricious motives.

This week, in a ‘half tour’ with the Secretary of the Department of Justice, Wanda Vázquez Garced, on a campaign to address crimes against people of the golden age, the prosecutor was still combative with the outcome of the case.

Not only did she call Reyes Caparrós “immature” but, in reference to the head of the FBI in Puerto Rico, Douglas Leff, he contrasted that he “talks a lot” and she prefers to keep more reserved about pending investigations.

The brush with Leff is occurring since the verdict.

“This man (Reyes Caparrós) suffers from immaturity, suffers from other situations that I will not bring at that moment because I really feel sorry that he has abused the moment,” said Rodriguez when interviewed by ABC 5.

“My record is there, the record of my office is there, I completely deny that, it makes me sad, because precisely if he had that kind of argument he should have brought it in the trial which he did not bring and none of those things he said after the verdict because he had brought it and none are true, “he said.

Reyes Caparrós, who resigned in 2015, filed his claim shortly after being stripped of his routine work obligations after complaining about having to run personal errands for his superiors.

After the verdict, there are claims for the official to be replaced.

“Reyes Caparrós makes extremely serious allegations because they confirm something that defendants, defendants and defenders have always claimed: that the Federal Prosecutor’s Office in Puerto Rico has been dedicated to the fabrication of cases, which is illegal, unconstitutional, undermines our democratic aspiration and it worsens the tremendous political fragility of the government system in Puerto Rico, “said María Mari Narváez, director of the organization ‘Kilometer 0’.

La Fiscalía federal en Puerto Rico atraviesa por un momento precario entre alegaciones de fabricaciones de casos, “terror” impartido por la jefa de oficina, Rosa Emilia Rodríguez Vélez, y varios casos de hostigamiento laboral.

Los escenarios mencionados ocurren también mientras se habla de una posible sustitución de la jefa Rodríguez en momentos en que también el Negociado Federal de Investigaciones Criminales (FBI, por sus siglas en inglés), se ha mostrado evasivo a la hora de responder interrogantes sobre la labor de Rodríguez Vélez para con sus empleados.

La discusión pública sobre el desempeño de Rodríguez Vélez se intensificó después de que Francisco Reyes Caparrós, exempleado de la Fiscalía, ganara una demanda por hostigamiento laboral.

Rodríguez Vélez ha tratado de defenderse del veredicto de varias maneras, incluso acusando a este medio y al demandante. Sin embargo, lo que representa una amenaza a su credibilidad como jefa del Gobierno de los Estados Unidos en Puerto Rico es que un grupo de 12 personas, constituidas como un jurado, simplemente le creyó al exempleado más que a ella.

El predicamento en el que se encuentra Rodríguez Vélez es el mismo en el que se encuentran todas las personas que su oficina ha acusado criminalmente y que han salido convictos: pueden decir lo que quieran sobre su inocencia pero eso no borra que hubo un veredicto, unánime, que los declara culpables de delito.

En el caso de la jefa de fiscales la situación es peor, porque en muchos casos criminales el acusado opta por no sentarse a dar su versión en la silla de los testigos pero, en el caso de Reyes Caparrós, Rodríguez Vélez se sentó, ofreció su versión del alegado hostigamiento laboral bajo juramento, y el jurado no le creyó, concediéndole mayor credibilidad a la versión del demandante, quien también se sentó a testificar. Apenas hora y media tardó el jurado en aquilatar ambos testimonios y decidir a favor del exempelado.

¿Y qué creyó el jurado?

Según lo que expuso Reyes Caparrós en su versión de los hechos, el jurado creyó que Rodríguez Vélez tiene un “reino de terror” en su oficina. “O haces lo que yo digo, o haces lo que yo digo…. Allí o te sometes o te sometes”, dijo el demandante que ahora es merecedor, según el veredicto, de una compensación de hasta $300,000.

Tras el veredicto, el exempleado, que ahora debe volver a trabajar en la oficina como parte de su victoria legal, también dijo que la fiscal ordena investigaciones e inicia procesamientos por motivos caprichosos.

Esta semana, en un ‘media tour’ con la secretaria del Departamento de Justicia, Wanda Vázquez Garced, sobre una campaña de atención a crímenes contra personas de la edad dorada, la fiscal todavía se mostró combativa con el resultado del caso.

No solo tildó a Reyes Caparrós de “inmaduro” sino que, en referencia al jefe del FBI en Puerto Rico, Douglas Leff, contrastó que él “habla mucho” y ella prefiere mantenerse más reservada sobre investigaciones pendientes.

El roce con Leff está ocurriendo desde el veredicto.

“Este señor (Reyes Caparrós) sufre de inmadurez, sufre de otras situaciones que no voy a traer en ese momento porque realmente me da pena que él haya abusado del momento”, dijo Rodríguez al ser entrevistada por ABC 5.

“Mi récord está ahí, el récord de mi oficina está ahí. Yo completamente niego eso. Me da pena, porque precisamente si él tenía ese tipo de argumento debió traerlo en el juicio lo cual  no trajo y ninguna de esas cosas que dijo después del veredicto pues la había traído y ninguna son ciertas”, indicó también.

Reyes Caparrós, quien renunció en el 2015, radicó su demanda poco tiempo después tras ser despojado de sus obligaciones laborales rutinarias después de quejarse por tener que hacer recados personales para sus superiores.

Tras el veredicto, hay reclamos para que la funcionaria sea sustituida.

“Reyes Caparrós hace alegaciones extremadamente serias porque confirman algo que acusados, acusadas y defensores han alegado desde siempre: que la Fiscalía federal en Puerto Rico se ha dedicado a la fabricación de casos, lo cual es ilegal, es inconstitucional, atenta contra nuestra aspiración democrática y empeora la tremenda fragilidad política del sistema de gobierno en Puerto Rico”, dijo por su parte, María Mari Narváez, directora de la organización ‘Kilómetro 0’.

In the US, a frame-up (frameup) or setup is the act of framing someone, that is, providing false evidence or false testimony in order to falsely prove someone guilty of a crime.[1]

Sometimes, the person who is framing someone else is the actual perpetrator of the crime. In other cases it is an attempt by law enforcement to get around due process. Motives include getting rid of political dissidents or “correcting” what they see as the court’s mistake. Some lawbreakers will try to claim they were framed as a defense strategy.

Rosa Emilia says that the cases can not be manufactured

Federal Prosecutor Rosa Emilia Rodriguez defended herself against the accusations made by the former employee of her office that won her a lawsuit for retaliation and hostile work environment.

Speaking last night to ABC5’s On Record program, Rodríguez Vélez said that it is still being evaluated if the case is appealed, that it has not been concluded, and criticized the plaintiff, former intelligence specialist Francisco Reyes Caparrós.

¨Our position was always doing the right thing. This gentleman, as you have always said, suffers from immaturity, from other situations that I will not attract at this moment because I feel sorry that I have abused this moment and I am not going to abuse him. This is absolutely false, we have other mechanisms that we will be following in this case and that people should trust our record and how we are as human beings, “Rodriguez Velez told the television.

Whether to Questions about cases Were fabricated or at some point I That Demanded That figures to be Sought Judges as file charges, Rodriguez Velez replied. “It is absolutely false . I live quietly, I quietly sleep I’ve dedicated my whole life, 30 years as a federal employee, 12 years as a federal prosecutor for Puerto Rico, a lot of pride, my record is there, my office, I completely deny that. ”

“You can not manufacture the cases, we have processes … the grand jury that is so strict, we have 18 people who are the ones who decide … that’s ridiculous,” said Rodríguez Vélez.

Reyes Caparros denounced in statements to the media that Rodriguez Velez has a reign of terror in the prosecution, that there is an active investigation from Washington, and that he made expressions such that they would get him “a judge” to present him charges.

Rodríguez Vélez regretted that Reyes Caparrós did not make those allegations during the trial. The prosecutor said that the processes in his office are very rigorous and said that the “institutions” must be respected.

¨ I am sorry that it has been, as they say vulgarly, dispatched with the big spoon. I have kept silence in respect to the institution and the process¨

“Every day the federal prosecutor’s office is an institution that Puerto Rico needs, and you have to trust the institutions,” he said.

On the possibility of her being replaced as head of the federal prosecutor’s office in Puerto Rico, Rodriguez Velez said that she is in that position as long as the Department of Justice and the president of the United States determine it. “I am a career employee,” he said.

After the former employee of the Federal Prosecutor’s Office in Puerto Rico, Francisco Reyes Caparrós, made statements about an alleged environment of “terror” that reigns in the office headed by Rosa Emilia Rodriguez and spoke about the manufacture of cases in this body, Rodríguez defended alleging that the gentleman who won a suit for work harassment to his office suffers from “immaturity.”

Their expressions were made in an interview by the program ‘En Récord’ that ABC 5 Puerto Rico transmits.

“This man suffers from immaturity, suffers from other situations that I will not bring at that time because I really feel sorry that he has abused the moment,” said Rodriguez, reacting to the allegations presented by Reyes Caparrós.

Consequently, the head of the federal prosecutor downplayed the allegations indicating that her work speaks for her, despite yesterday the head of the Federal Bureau of Criminal Investigation (FBI, for its acronym in English), Douglas Leff, avoided talking about the functions of Rodriguez in the presiding office and in substitution, stressed that “the most important thing is the employees that work in the streets”.

“My record is there, the record of my office is there, I completely deny that, it makes me sad, because precisely if he had that kind of argument he should have brought it in the trial which he did not bring and none of those things he said after the verdict because he had brought it and none are true, “Rosa Emilia claimed.

Last May, a court suggested an indemnity of $ 300,000 for Reyes Caparros for, among other things, being subjected to labor in the office that Rodriguez presides over.

After the decision, the gentleman argued that “[i] t is how the copper is beaten among the employees that is another singing, because there is the reign of terror, either you do what I say, or you do what I say .. There is no one to submit, or you submit, “I said while asking questions from the same radio while denouncing that it is Rosa Emilia who carries out the commands.
