The prosecutor’s office is working, but there are improvements that need to be implemented, Dubuis said. He will work towards that in the coming months. “After completing this work, I will submit my resignation to the Valais Grand Council by December 31, 2023 at the latest,” said Dubuis.
His deputy Lucie Wellig had already submitted her resignation at the end of September on Friday. Nothing is known about the reasons for her departure.
In a report published in November on the human resources department of the Attorney General’s Office, the Judicial Council sharply criticized the agency. He spoke of a “worrying situation” in the authority. The reason for the investigation was the controversial reappointment of two prosecutors.
