Update: Colombian judge Vivian Polania has been suspended for three months after showing up for a Zoom court session while half-dressed and smoking a cigarette.
Polania had previously made headlines for her racy Instagram posts.
En un video que circula por WhatsApp se ve a la jueza Vivian Polanía (trabaja en el Palacio de Justicia de Cúcuta) atendiendo una diligencia judicial en su cama, semidesnuda y fumando. No sé si esto pueda acarrearle alguna sanción, pero al menos el escándalo ya está servido. pic.twitter.com/9rgNx4C6pV

A Judge in Colombia can’t seem to stop uploading X-rated content, even after a government investigation and threats from gang members.
Vivian Polania, who somehow continues to hold her seat as Cucuta’s top municipal criminal judge, was the subject of a 2020 scandal that has seemingly launched her into stardom.
Polania’s comments regarding her Instagram following earning her discounts on top-shelf clothing brands prompted an investigation by the Judgeship Superior Council Section Disciplinary Board.
According to the Daily Star, Polania claims she was a victim of the 2020 inquiry.
“I am the only woman who does not have the right to wear a bathing suit, because rather, it goes against the dignity of the administration of justice,” she said. “It is one thing to be strong and they may believe that I am very young, but I have been in the Judicial Branch since I was 18 years old. I have never disrespected a colleague or a partner. You can’t imagine how difficult it is to be dressed in a dress of those lengths and have hearings of four hours.”
Polania is beset on all sides, it seems- in addition to drawing ire from her colleagues, she also receives threats from gang members she has sent away to prison.
Despite a prior investigation- the tides appear to have changed on the court side of the house.
“We express our total solidarity in the face of this type of reprehensible acts that undermine judicial autonomy,” the Judicial Board said in a recent statement.
