And from the "Stupid Things People Say" Files, the Minister of Justice announced that promotion of judges would depend on a review of how they are sentencing those arrested during the student demonstrations. This has lead to the Judges Association to declare that the judiciary has never been put under this kind of political pressure, not even during the dictatorship.

I suspect that this has less to do with any sort of authoritarian crackdown, and more to do with wishful thinking, clumsily stated. Even so, justice ministers should not be making clumsy statements based on their wishful thinking.
