What is the outcome? The commission made up of seven legislators from various political parties said they will table they final report Thursday next.

The report is expected to be drafted by commission chairman Gerardo Vargas Varela, head of Frente Amplio party and legislators Otton Solis of the Partido Accion Cuidadana (PAC), Antonio Álvarez Desanti of the Partido Liberacion Nacional (PLN) and Johnny Lewis of the Partido Unidad Social Cristiana(PUSC).

At a news conference, the press was told that the four legislators will use the minutes of the hearings that contain the declarations by Brenes, Jimenez and Soley.

In addition, the commission will be asking President Luis Guillermo Solís for the details of the investigation that Casa Presidencial had conducted and the exchange of letters between Soley, the PAC and others.

According to Vargas Varela, the report will not only draw conclusions, but make recommendations to the executive branch.

For her part, PAC legislator Epsy Campbell, who has not been very vocal during the hearings, but let her facial expression draw conclusions, said the committee is not bound to issue only one report.

Since the beginning of the political mess, President Solís had washed his hands of the matter, leaving it to the Legislative branch to deal with it. However, it appears, that the “mess” will be back on is desk next week.
